Comfortable and Elegant Daily Living



Bold & Bright // The vast plaster arch, curved sofa, and contrasting chairs stand out in this room. Urbanology designed a stunning custom dark sofa featuring curves and paired it with contrasting light chairs to create a bold look. Wood tones and stone side tables add texture and color to the room.

The homeowners needed more space during the pandemic and happened upon a house for sale on one of their evening walks. 

The clients love organic and sculptural pieces, so the design reflects just the right mix of those elements, coupled with comfortable furniture for the family to relax. 

Serene Sitting // The bold gallery wall and sculptural loveseat add a pop of color against the dark green walls. This vignette was completed with a low-profile stone coffee table and added seating in mixed materials to create tactile interest in the space.


Distinctive Dining // The black table is a statement piece that comes to life next to gorgeous light wood and rust-colored chairs. Fine details in the chandelier and accent plaster wall enhance the design.

Play All Day // A custom desk and built-in were married with plush cushions and soft neutral tones, creating an ideal creative space for the kids.


Family Ties // The open layout in the kitchen and breakfast room connects the family with one another and the outdoors through the large picture window.

Inside Out // When Urbanology first walked into the home, they considered how to unite the indoors with the out by utilizing the outdoor spaces to tie into the home’s interiors, especially with substantial glass walls connecting the areas.

Primary Bedroom

Super-Sized Sleeping // A custom-made 100-square-foot bed for the primary bedroom was designed to fulfill the clients’ love of oversized beds. It features a textural boucle fabric in the headboard that hangs over from both sides to frame two beautiful metal and leather nightstands.
