Klopf Architecture - San Francisco Mid-Century Modern RemodelMidcentury Living Room, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
But let’s say you already have enough steely hues in your scheme that embracing one more, even if it’s the real deal, is too much to bear. That’s where a trusty paintbrush comes in. In probably 15 minutes or less, you can have a design feature that wasn’t there before.
In otherwise all-white or monochromatic interiors, colors tend to stand out — especially red. There are two splashes of paint in this living room, but only one is architectural. The red column really accentuates how it's separate from the planar elements (walls, floors, ceiling, window).
Here's another fantastic wall of windows but with dark, almost black wood floors and a mixture of gray and white hues as the predominant colors. This living room is the epitome of cool, clean and modern. The small bits of red give just the right amount of pep and life.
