Boldly Modern Living Room Design

The white fireplace and accents pop against walls painted a warm shade of dark brown.

Erika Federspiel of Toronto won "Best Living Room Transformation" in our 2008 design contest for this character-filled space. Erika had the Danish chair and ottoman refinished and reupholstered to work with the room's black, grey and brown palette.
