The weather is beautiful in San Francisco today, and I'm in a sprightly, colorful mood. Pop art seems to be the only thing that'll cure my cravings for cheerful, vibrant design. That said, I thought I'd round up some fun furnishings that fit the bill. One of my favorites is the George Nelson Marshmallow Sofa ($3,300), which is made of round, orange, purple, and red cushions. The Heart of Haiti Bowls ($10), made of papier-mâché, would be a cute catchall for keys and jewelry. The Efflorescence I Giclee ($319) has an elegant design, yet the the neon background offers a pop of color for the walls. Click the rest of the product images to shop this look!
The Harlem home of American visual artist Cary Leibowitz (aka Candyass) is a melting pot of sorts, juxtaposing objects from different eras. Louis XIV furniture lives with psychedelic '70s lamps, optical wallpaper, neoclassical busts, and Victorian secretaries. Pop art is the lowest common denominator, as Leibowitz is a collector of Andy Warhol's works. While it's definitely busy, it's not prohibitively so. To me, it's just fun! What do you think?
The dining room is often the most formal room in our homes. But, seeing as we've thrown formality to the wind in nearly every other aspect of our culture, why stop there? Why not pair lively conversation with lively design?
I absolutely love love love this dining room in the portfolio of Francesco Lagnese, and I can't imagine any of my dinner guests disagreeing. From the pop art lips to the tall, bursting centerpiece to the cantaloupe-colored chairs, it's a breath of fresh air and a conversation starter. And the polished white floors and sleek black walls allow the personality pieces to shine. If you've got the guts, go for it!

Themes drawn from pop culture, bright colors, hard-edged compositions, and representational motifs abound in the decor world, making it a cinch to channel the '60s in my digs.
