In THE DETAILS: Clean lines and Mid-century Modern shapes (Eames chair at the desk, replica Hans Wegner lounge chairs next to the fireplace, Thaden Jordan sideboard, Malm Majestic fireplace) create a vintage yet modern feel in the space. The wall color is Valspar’s Linden. The art above the couch was painted for the homeowners by Ruth Langs (Ann Arbor) as an abstract interpretation of their wedding.

 

IN THIS 1958 ANN ARBOR HOME, owned by Elin Walters, left, designer/curator/owner of Exactly Designs, pops of decorative orange and turquoise are as vibrant as an October pumpkin patch on a blue-sky day. The space adjoins the master bedroom (behind the concrete dividing wall) and offers the homeowners their own sanctuary. Built in 2014, the addition was designed specifically to house the orange Majestic fireplace. “We were given the fireplace by my parents a couple years prior and were aching to put it to good use,” Walters says. “I’m always looking for that initial building block from which to start my ‘construction.’ I’m drawn to orange and turquoise, most likely because they’re complementary colors and they just feel right together. Orange feels alive and energizing, and turquoise helps me feel calm. We chose shades of these two colors to create a room that felt both relaxing and warm.” To tie the fireplace in, pops of orange were strategically placed throughout. The soft teal wall and couch provide a wonderful pairing for the orange, and the grass fabric on the wall echoes the green “grass” that’s the rug, Walters explains. exactlydesigns.com
