The Decorist + ATG Stores Online Interior Design Challenge with LA Designer Ryan White
Our home for the weekend? A tiny shipping container that we had to make over! We called on a designer we knew was perfect for the project: LA-based Decorist Celebrity Designer Ryan White. We've been a big fan of Ryan's work for a while now - we love his understated, clean, rich, comfortable and sophisticated design style, and we asked him to bring that aesthetic to our Dwell on Design LA space. As a unique twist, we asked him to design the space using items from ATG Stores, one of our partners who we are sharing the space with. Using the Decorist online interior design platform, Ryan then 100% virtually designed a luxe, warm and masculine mid-century modern living room we love, one that fit just right inside our refurbished shipping container.
As with all Decorist projects, our designers create realistic 2D design boards. Here is Ryan's concept board for the shipping container.
In Ryan's words, "the design inspiration was to keep the environment modern but with warm and inviting elements. The hide rug, the organic stone accent tables and lots of greenery help soften the cooler aesthetic of the shipping container. Bringing in the cognac leather sofa adds a sense of luxury and additional warmth. At RWD we always like to throw in a curve ball by mixing time periods. Utilizing mid-century lighting, and accent pieces like the brass side table, is both contemporary and contributes to the feeling of cultivated living." We also have to mention the chic marble and iron bar cart, the bold graphic and textured pillows, and the mid-century lounge and side chairs - what a stunning combination!
If you love the design, here's how to get this look, with the shopping list from ATG Stores:
