450 architects - Coral Gables Residence

This private residence is located at the end of a cul-de-sac on a deep-water canal that leads to Florida's Biscayne Bay. The clients—parents of Principal Richard Parker, AIA—sought a modern yet grandchild-friendly retirement home with open interior spaces, ample areas to entertain and display Mrs. Parker's artwork, and an inviting connection to the water and Florida breezes.

7. Use the color palette. Going beyond just picking up a single color from a painting, this room has used all of the colors in the art for the room's entire color palette. This artwork is by the homeowner, so she was able to surround herself with colors that she loves. The rug seems to pick up all of the colors of the painting on the left. I wonder if it is custom or just a very lucky find?

Use restraint: Sometimes you can support art by just exercising some restraint and letting it be the star of the room. The quilt behind this sofa is extremely detailed and really invites inspection. By keeping the sofa, chair, wall color, lampshade and rug in a monochromatic scheme, the designer gives your eye someplace to rest. In this case, because of the level of detail in the art, picking up colors and shapes in accessories would actually distract.
