The last room left to be designed in Meghan’s midtown apartment is the media/guest room. Currently, it hold a navy velvet sleeper sectional, white dresser, and light blue Lucca maze area rug. As you might remember from her bedroom makeover, the walls in her apartment are a terrible beige color, so the first to-do will be painting the room. With a more cohesive color palette and a few simple additions from AllModern, I’m hoping the room will feel inviting but simplified – a cozy interpretation of minimalism!

SWELL SHOPPING: PRETTY-IN-PINK LONDON LIVING ROOM DESIGN

Pink London living room design with blush pink walls, tan sofas facing each other by fireplace on Thou Swell #pinkroom #pinkwalls #livingroom #livingroomdesign #pinkpaint #homedecor #homedecorideas(via House & Garden, photography by Paul Massey)

This sophisticated living room in London is swathed in a beautiful neutral pink (looks a lot like “Stolen Kiss” in my paint guide), with a classic layout of sofas facing each other by the fireplace. The roll-arm sofas have bright pink ikat lumbars and an olive green ottoman between, bringing just enough color to the subtle warmth of the blush room. I love the black bust on the mantel and the very English jute rug below. Bring the look home with my design board below!

HGTV Dream Home 2021 by Brian Patrick Flynn with Belgard outdoor living in Newport, Rhode Island on Thou Swell #hgtv #dreamhome #homedesign #homedecorideas #interiordesign(Photos © 2020 Discovery or its subsidiaries and affiliates. All rights reserved.)

This year’s HGTV Dream Home celebrates its 25th anniversary, and the house is located in scenic Newport, Rhode Island. It’s such a dreamy location and the design takes inspiration from the Newport mansions, especially in the exterior design with coastal shingles and grey hardscaping materials from Belgard®. Designed by Brian Patrick Flynn, the house takes the year’s most significant design stories and brings them to life in creative ways in each room, from using Sherwin-Williams colors of the year to incorporating lots of outdoor living areas for backyard gatherings.

TERRACE DRIVE PROJECT: DARK GREEN BEDROOM REVEAL WITH ALLMODERN

Project by: Kevin Francis Design

In Terrace Drive Project, I’ve mainly been making changes to the surfaces in the apartment like the new paint colors and area rugs, but in the dark green bedroom, I got to introduce some new furniture to the mix to really polish up the space. I turned to AllModern for mid-century-inspired design that would complement the existing headboard and sourced the perfect nightstands, lumbar pillow, and unique artwork for the room. I also found a great flush mount light fixture for a much-needed upgrade from the cheap “boob light” in the center of the ceiling. This bedroom feels so handsome and grown-up now, full of stylish accent pieces!
