When we discovered the work of New York Interior Designer James Rixner, we discovered the work of a highly inspired and refined design genius whose uncommon work is characterized by elegance, serenity, and an approachable warmth. Of course, we can’t forget mentioning his grand usage of mid-century pieces, antiques and contemporary furniture which span many styles and time frames…tres magnifique. Please enjoy a daily dose of design inspirations for the day with these truly insipred living room ideas below.
Mid-Century Modern Sitting Room
This beautiful sitting area in a Townhouse is the quintessential New York Room. The step up to the terrace is carpeted in a dramatic stripe to accent the stairs and draw your eye to the fabulous view . The Lobmeyr Austrian crystal chandelier is a smaller version of those found in the Metropolitan Opera House and the dramatic painting , “Cosmos II” by NY Artist Perry Burns.
Venetian-Inspired Art Deco Living Room
Luxurious finishes, fine period pieces, couture craftmanship and a rare 1920s Aubusson Deco carpet evoke a more glamorous era in this stunning receiving salon.
Hamptons Style Living Room
A Living Room in The Hamptons exhibits a neutral elegance. This room avoids the usual beach house look by using relaxed but elegant fabrics on classic upholstery pieces. The sunny palate mirrors the feeling of days spent outside.
Sterling Gray, White, Black and Hot Lime make up the palate for this up to the minute room. A 60’s style patterned carpet is the starting point which serves as the anchor and allows the various design elements to shine.
