What Houzz contributors are saying:
Living room. An antique table made from the wood of a Mexican ship accents the small living room. “Breaking down walls in the public spaces is always a key to success,” Urrutia says. “It allows the rooms to be physically and visually connected. And you can always use oversized pocket doors if you want to have the ability to close the rooms down to one another.” Custom sofa: Urrutia Design; Bling chandelier: Robert Abbey; landscape art: Scott Segerblom
A floor lamp nestled against a window is a smart substitute for daylight, so that when the sun goes down, an ambient glow will pour in from a similar direction to balance the central light overhead.
4. Branch out. "Fill oversized glass vases with a compilation of branches in any shape and length you wish," Carvalho says. Urrutia adds, "This type of arrangement is elegant and understated, and will last you the entire season."
