Black + Brown + White + Gold

I've been itching to re-do some aspects of my current apartment (with roommate approval!) for quite a while; I'm kind of held up while we figure out whether we're going to stay in the same apartment much longer, but in the meantime I'm constantly searching for inspiration. I love the living room of this home in Coquitlam, British Columbia designed by Angela Robinson. The mix of textures with modern, minimalistic design makes the room feel cozy and inviting. I am especially in love with the set of gold paintings above the couch. I think they'd be pretty easy to replicate on some level!

The browns & blacks in the rooms ground the eye, while the gold adds an exciting, slightly glamourous pop.

Doesn't the white rug make you want to curl your toes into it? I'd spread out in front of the fire with a cozy throw & good book in the winter.
