Stephanie and Derek's living room reflects their love of travel, family and midcentury modern design, with photographs taken by Derek during the couple's recent trips together to Chicago and Palm Springs. "The living room is the first space I started decorating," says Stephanie. "I knew I wanted to go with a yellow and gray color scheme. I found the Amy Butler Martini fabric and it was a perfect jumping-off point. I made the curtains and two throw pillows from that fabric. Next, we added a little deep purple and bright orange for some more pops of color."
