Best Bedrooms Designs of 2014

Ellie Cullman, Cullman & Kravis

What woman doesn’t want a sexy and glamorous bedroom fit with rose gold walls? We couldn’t help but fall for this gem designed by Ellie Cullman when we visited the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse this year.

Caleb Anderson, Caleb Anderson Design NYC

When we walked into this bedroom at the Lenox Hill Inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York this May, it was love at first sight. Caleb Anderson utilized the small space with a quietly layered, elegant canopy bed that is set off by a pop of cheerful citrine in the area rug.

Best Dining Rooms Interior Design 2014Timothy Corrigan, Timothy Corrigan Inc.

This grand dining room has been the talk of the office since we first laid eyes on it. The magical setting, amplified by a fabric-tented ceiling, speaks volumes to designer Timothy Corrigan’s talent.

Frank de Biasi, Frank de Biasi Interiors

This eat-in dining room by Frank de Biasi makes us want to dine in the kitchen every day! The space features so many special details, from the vertically striped step arch cornice to the same drapery fabric being run horizontally to echo the rug’s stripes.

Jennifer Cohler Mason, J. Cohler Mason Design

Designer Jennifer Cohler Mason proves that one statement color can totally make a room. Her use of a high-shine turquoise lacquer in this dining room made our jaw drop.

Plum was one of fall’s top hues, and Campion Platt  made the color look stunning in this urban living room by balancing it with fur, silk, metallics and sheers. This dreamy space makes us want to move in right now!

Lisa Staprans, Staprans Design

Designer Lisa Staprans was totally on top of one of next year’s biggest trends–bringing the outdoors inside. Her use of materials and colors that occur in nature make this living area the perfect spot to curl up with a cup of tea and reflect.

Best Foyer Interior Design 2014Barclay Butera, Barclay Butera Interiors

The blue grasscloth and Victorian-inspired seashell console tables in this foyer designed by Barclay Butera made us rethink the elegance of a beach theme. His symmetrical version oozes casual sophistication!

Keith Baltimore, Baltimore Design Center

Another of our favorites was this graphic entryway by Keith Baltimore. Large hand-painted diamonds adorn the walls of the small space, giving guests something to talk about as soon as they walk in the door.
