The Living Room

Design Trick: Pull the palette all the way through a room―essential for cohesion in an open space. Here, a poppy-orange chair and plum pillows echo the stairwell and den beyond.

Favorite Detail: This sealed, direct-vent (chimney-free) gas fireplace decreases air pollution and increases energy efficiency by preventing heated air from slipping outside.
