We are so close to summer entertaining; cocktails on the porch and dinner parties that flow from inside to outdoors. At the Metrie offices, we can hardly wait, so we went looking for the perfect space, from the Every Room Tells A Story — 2017 Builder & Designer Challenge, to host such activities. A luxe living room by Hillside Developments won by a landslide. Take a peek and you’ll see why we’re dreaming of late summer nights in this fabulous home.
Hillside Developments completely stunned us with this opulent take on contemporary design, using a white-on-white palette, marble tile, and our Fashion Forward Collection, including panel moulding, casing, chair rail, crown moulding and baseboard, in a crisp white paint. This living room has a sleek look that exudes class! Even the ceiling is palatial; the unique coffered look, with crown moulding outlining each of the squares, draws the eyes up and heightens the room to almost cathedral levels.
It is the entertainment pieces that make this design even more exquisite, specifically the marble fireplace that anchors the room and the folding glass doors that open the space up, literally. We love that the bold wall of glass is framed perfectly by the casing, inviting guests to bring the party outside.
We took the time to create a moodboard inspired by this upscale, fresh space so you can become the hostess with the mostest. Get the look with our tips and start planning your first summer get-together.
The pristine white canvas of this room gets paired perfectly with blue accents, like these throw pillows and this splended area rug, and the picturesque view at dusk. You can pull off the same sophisticated style with a bright white coat of paint, Metrie Fashion Forward panel moulding, simple white seating and minimalistic decor.
If you’re feeling inspired, wait until you see our curated Pinterest board full of all the elements you need to bring this room to life in your own home. Take a look, pin your favorites, then start shopping for your next project!
