The dreamy dining room of this beach house can be credited to NYC based interior designer, Tara Seawright. Many of the materials Seawright selects for her clients are vintage or custom, with these fanciful floral throw pillows of no exception. The vintage fabric of the pillows gives a playful throwback vibe to the icy ghost chairs.

Lourdes Gabriela Interiors, a Miami based boutique design company, was the magician behind the swanky style of this Miami apartment. The ultra modern ghost coffee table and clean lines breathe new life into the vintage accents and textures of the room. The results? Instant coolness and never dated.

Stark white modern chairs and random orb lighting create a clean contemporary look, but what sets this scene apart is the secondhand wooden sideboard. Scored from a vintage furniture dealer in the Netherlands, the sideboard warms the futuristic vibe of the space and gives the room personality.

The Persian styling of this room scene featuring our Cantilena rug from the Shapura Collection is very traditional and the light palette creates a time worn appearance.  The stark white couches, fresh bright blue walls and throw pillows, animal print throw and modern vases, all make for a great contrast of antique and contemporary.
