So can a living room be elegant and edgy all at once? The Honolulu home of designer Marion Philpotts Miller suggests the answer is yes. Certain stately furnishings like a grand piano are fixtures of finery, and music-loving Miller is a fan. But she’s an equally avid supporter of visual arts including those with a modern bent. The living room lavender pod chandelier adds an edgy layer of complexity to the room design, making it as interesting as it is elegant.
Organize small appliances by determining how often they are used. Items used once a month or less frequently should be kept on higher shelves or in the back of cabinets, while items used daily or weekly should be kept within reach. Not only does this make the kitchen look less cluttered, but will make cooking much easier - no more digging around for what you need, when you need it! Get more kitchen organizing ideas.
Dove gray and attention to detail create serene sophistication in the living room of this Connecticut home overlooking Long Island Sound. “I did not want a beachy home so we went with dark floors and classic details,” says the owner, architectural designer Louise Brooks. Farrow & Ball’s “Skimming Stone” is painted on the walls, while the wood comes clean in the venerable paint company “All White.” Silver-gray cocktail and side tables pick up the thread of color from the room’s gray-and-white striped Elizabeth Eakins rug, while the furniture remains calm in white upholstery fabrics. Even the accessories on the fireplace wall shelves are pared down for importance. Most notable is the pair of antique lanterns on the middle shelves.
