Modern Jewel-Toned Living Room

Bold colours and vintage pieces create a unique look.

"We thought having a big pink sofa would be hilarious, so I balanced that with the bold turquoise fabric that covers the vintage aluminum chairs — my twist on the ubiquitous bergere chair," says stylist Arren Williams. The brightly upholstered furniture is toned-down with neutral walls and a modern stone fireplace which he painted a creamy white. Vintage pieces, such as the side tables and glass pendant, give a retro-cool vibe to the space.
