Studio Style Living Room
A velvet-upholstered chair pops against neutral white walls and natural objects.
"Adopting a vintage studio style allowed me to have more creativity in my home, surrounded by things that inspire me," says designer Thomas O'Brien in his new book, American Modern. Later, he says, "The point of making a home with so much to look at was to relax into the whole collection as something unfolding. I didn’t acquire these things overnight. It took time to study and source and wait for the right examples of favorite works. And I have enjoyed each piece as it comes, observing how it settles in my space."
