After completing high school in Honolulu, Hawaii, Tyler Wisler ("Design Star 6") moved to the East Coast to attend Marymount University. Since earning a bachelor's degree in interior design 12 years ago, Tyler has worked as a professional interior designer in the New York City area. He believes that most of his design skills were developed by on-the-job experience with clients, who he says appreciate his attention to detail. Tyler says he enjoys the latest design trend of "industrial chic," which includes the use of recycled materials and dark metals paired with wood. As a professional designer, he says he always strives to give his clients the design they love, but will not hold back if he disagrees with a design decision.
Neutral Made New
Shades of oatmeal, ivory and beige don’t necessarily mean boring, as this comfortable and casually chic seating area proves. Gorgeous cream-lacquered nesting tables and floor lamp sit proudly alongside the intricate detail of a cloisonne drum stool, set off by lush printed linen drapery panels.
A Place for Reading and Relaxation
This tranquil reading space is quiet and relaxing. Wisler used a petrified teak wood stump aside a dark tobacco rattan lounge chair and ottoman. A hand-blown glass lamp illuminates the area.
Refined Neutral Bedroom
With unobstructed views of the East River, gorgeous modern art and a sprawling terrace, the last thing you want to do is overpower a room with distractions in the way of loud patterns and colors. The bisque-colored kid leather bed holds court in the room, but doesn’t deter from the splendor its surroundings offer.
Spice-Inspired Living Room
Smart and sophisticated, this modern living room celebrates the colors of the Turkish spice bazaar. Vibrant hues of saffron and paprika upholstery upon deep coffee-colored frames are peppered with accessories in bright aqua.
Keeping a muted color palette in a room is always a sure-fire way to ensure a sense of serenity, especially in a bedroom. Harmonious shades of aqua bounce around the room with eye-catching textural and pattern changes.
A Great, Great Room
A neutral color palette and smart space planning is the foundation unifying this large space, despite it being so multi-functional. Natural Belgian linens collide with supple ivory leather and rich chocolate ultra suede to give not only giving textural interest but practicality to this all-purpose room.
