The persimmon reds and yellows in the chairs and accessories pop against the blue-black and white geometric rug. Murphy has created a lyrical interplay of rectangular and rounded shapes. The gold sunburst mirror forms a central focus from which radiate the white rectangles in the rug. The large green leaves of the ficus tree resonate with the green tones in the oil painting on the right wall. Several seating areas offer places to rest, converse or read.

6. The trellis in the black and white geometric rug is formed by a pattern that looks like black stitches. The airy trellis provides a delicate counterpoint to bold black strokes in the painting. The book spines introduce pops of color. Image courtesy Lonny Magazine.
Designers John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross’s living room design makes the eye move in a circle from the bold black strokes in the painting and the black pillows to the two black chairs. The black objects pop against white.
7. Anna Burke of Kemble Interiors chose a rug with wide black and white stripes for the living room of her Manhattan apartment. Image courtesy Lonny Magazine.
Burke has created an artistic composition- pillows with rounded small scale geometric black and white patterns serve as a fine counterpoint to the bold black and white striped rug. The white walls, white drapes and the large rectangular black shape of the steamer trunk complete the graphic composition. The green pillow and peacock feather add pops of cool color while the mix of different textures-glass, silvery metal, gold colored metal and fur add interest.
9. The staggered black and white striped rug brings invigorating energy while the soothing color palette of pale beige, soft grey and honey wood tones in the sofas, pillows, coffee table and art create a feeling of serenity in this living room by Susan Becher. Image courtesy Lonny Magazine.
