Design Room Swoon:

Summer State of Mind

Angular black elements in a sea of white, with hits of sandy hues — this massively restrained room combines the sophistication of an art gallery with the warmth and tranquility of a vacation home. Talk about a space that swoons!

While this stunning house may look like it belongs in the Mediterranean, it is really the New Jersey abode of artist and blogger Nicole Cohen of Sketch42. Amazing how transportive a powerful palette and well-designed decor can be. Shop our recreation of the room below, and head to Sketch42 to see many more photos of the space, plus an in-depth look at Nicole’s impressive interior design process.

Airy and Architectural
  1. West Elm Sydney Sofa: The rounded edges of the sofa play beautifully against the many geometric accents within the space.

  2. Nicole Cohen “Concrete”: Photographed by Nicole herself, this print is the exact artwork shown in the inspiration.

  3. CB2 Sophia Black Dining Chair: We love the thin, angular black lines of this chair, and the way they punctuate the light, bright room.

  4. Beige Cowhide Area Rug: The perfect tone-on-tone accent atop an off-white floor.

  5. Threshold 8-Cube Organizer Shelf: Simple, modern, and minimal.

  6. The Dharma Door Small Jute Basket: We never tire of elegant woven baskets.

  7. ABC Carpet & Home Flatiron-Wrought Cube Side Table: A classic cube table with all the right angles.
