a room with a view

We just finished staging an elegant family home located on a wide street up in the hills of Glendale. It’s located high above Chevy Chase canyon, overlooking a valley called Emerald Isle. Built in 1969, with much of its original detail intact, we decided to stage it in a Mid Century modern meets Hollywood Regency style — with some traditional details added to capture the heart of the home’s potential buyer.

Enter through the awesome double front doors and take a look around with us. We styled the entry with a narrow console table and a circular mirror.

The white carpet and walls proved to be an ideal canvas for us to bring in a burnt orange sofa with modern lines. We tricked it out with some flokati pillows, of course. An orange knitted pouf repeats the persimmon scheme, while framed abstract art and blue accessories balance the palette.

A Barcelona-style glass topped cocktail table with an X-base gleams in the center of the room.

We squared off the sofa with two graphite slipper chairs and placed a hand-carved low Indian table between them.

A view into the other side of the living room, and a reflection in a vintage brass apple. Even the tones of the book covers tie into our overall color scheme.

We placed two chocolate brown wing back chairs in a corner of the living room, pointed toward the view. A chevron pillow ties all the room’s colors together and a sunburst mirror is all we needed on the wall.

The dining room takes a more traditional turn, as dark gray linen slip covered chairs pull up to a turned-leg dining table.

To tie into the B&W art on the walls, we tossed a boldly graphic striped throw over one of the chairs.

Keeping with our B&W theme, the tabletop shares this high-contrast look.

A sunroom off the dining room is treated to a neutral color scheme with some earthy accents, in the form of a Moroccan pattern flatweave rug angled over a jute rug. A zebra pillow and an African basket complete the globally influenced look.

In the master bedroom, a soothing mix of taupe, gray and B&W, with a faux fur bedspread for luxury.

We chose high contrast B&W nightstands to add a punch to this restful retreat.
