In this historic apartment in Paris, originally designed by Jansen, Cathy Vedovi and the architect Benoit Dupuis renovated the house to host and highlight three big Takashi Murakami panels.
The living room is big enough to have two distinctive areas – one is an angular nook with dark hues and red blocks of color (including an abstract art piece). The other one is an airy and neutral conversational area with large wall art that creates a whimsical landscape in a room that lacks outdoor views. The distinctive areas become one with a doughnut-shaped artwork by Nathalie Djurberg right in the middle of the two distinctive sites.
At Jamie Beriestein’s own apartment in Madrid, the designer achieves a spotless neutral living room with a minimal layout. Two iconic Le Corbusier armchairs surround a vibrant Table Bleue by Yves Klein among an all-white living room. On the wall, a blue-Klein artwork by Peter Helly is a mirror to the square center table.
In this penthouse in Manhattan designed by Joan and Jayne Michaels, the sister behind 2Michaels, one of the living rooms combines curvy furniture with abstract artwork. For instance, the sculpture on the wall of the living room is a work of New York-based artist Charles Hinman. The interior designers heavenly matched the mustard yellow round sofa with the wall art.
Geoffrey de Sousa takes a Tudor-style home and reinterprets the timeless English interior design. For a modern living room, the San Francisco-based designer keeps the traditional chocolate walnut floor and the classic paneled walls which is the backdrop for a surrealist painting. This surrealist painting is the focal point of the living room whose dark tint pigments contrast with the pastel upholstery.
The art for a living room in this residence in Toronto is the perfect blend of artwork and top-notch furniture design. It’s hard to tell which one came first to the mind of Katherine Newman Design, the creative behind this gallery-look-alike family room.
This residence in New York keeps the French Beaux-Arts architecture after Suzanne Lovell’s intervention.

Designed by Kevin Isbell, this maximalist home is bold, and magnificently out of the box, made for a Kuwaiti family. The owners of this maximalist home in New York City wanted something eclectic and personal. Something to go out of their comfort zone by not having a monotone, minimalist space. This living room alternates between the color blue and the color green with baroque patterns and prints. Even though the art for the living room is abstract and contemporary, the paintings both on the living room and dining room blend in with the upholstery.
Every furniture piece is a work of art in this unworldly home in the Netherlands. Designing for friends, Job Smeets brought to life a psychedelic home that resembles a theme park.
The customer of the French decorator honestly admitted that he loves art, but wasn’t ready to invest a lot of money in it.
