We know you’ve been on the edge of your seat all month, but the wait is over. July’s dose of inspiration is courtesy of Champion 1 Builders’ beautiful living room, which won the People’s Choice Award in our 2016 Builder & Designer Challenge.
This bold room features our Very Square Collection, which was used throughout the entire home to create a consistent feel in every room. The home was built as a craftsman, but with a distinct modern flair. We’ll get out of the way so you can see for yourself.
Gorgeous, right? This space offers nearly endless decor opportunitie,s because you could tailor it to almost any style. But, the grey-on-grey contrast paired with metallic and luxe accents (that rug! that ceiling!), truly lends the space to an edgy modern look. While creating our moodboard, we wanted to stay true to that bold style with geometric details and luxurious furniture, with a pop of pink for fun twist.
Are you ready for love at first sight?
First things first, can we talk about this room’s palette? The walls are painted a pale grey, while ceiling accents and the fireplace are painted a deep grey. Get the look with Benjamin Moore’s Seattle Mist and City Shadow. While technically monochromatic, the paint, flooring and rug were thoughtfully chosen to add depth to the space. The dual-tone coffered ceiling and dark fireplace play perfectly against the lighter floor and wall. With furniture in white and grey, and pops of pink in pillows and flowers, we can’t even imagine a more trendy place to relax after work with a glass of wine.
But let’s talk about the real showstopper in this room, the fireplace. Want a closer look? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
We just can’t stop talking about this beautiful fireplace. And who could blame us? With that sleek gas insert, punchy color, metallic accent and gorgeous trimwork, this fireplace is absolutely picture-perfect. We especially love that the moulding and metallic inserts add some curves and flow to the piece, keeping it from being too starkly modern.
All in all, this room is a spectacular piece of design. Like we said earlier, you could take the decor of this room almost anywhere you want, but we kept it simple for our moodboard and Pinterest board. This month’s challenge?
