Over the years, Bobby has worked on lots of different interiors in all sorts of styles, sizes, and scopes. But for his newest project, he took his talents to new territory – a completely virtual space – creating rooms that exist only on your screen (and you can tour from anywhere!) And we’re about to give you an inside look at all the details behind each of his stunning virtual spaces!
As part of the Living by Design Showhouse, Bobby and our design team created three unique spaces that bring together inspiring ideas, stunning materials, and some of our favorite furniture and decor of the moment. And thanks to hyper-realistic visualizations, it truly feels like these rooms have some to life.

The Living By Design showhouse was designed by Brandon Architects and brought to life with visualizations by YouSee. National media partner is Martha Stewart Living and the showhouse producer is Embello.
As the first space you enter in the showhouse, we wanted to create a chic and inviting foyer that also had a bit of a playful side. Sticking to a palette of black and white, we mixed graphic elements, striking pieces, and sculptural shapes for a modern moment that still feels welcoming. The white daybed might feel like a daring choice for an entry foyer, but when paired with a more-traditional mirror and chandelier, it works well with the transitional style of the home. The streamlined credenza on the opposite wall balances the sofa, while a tone-on-tone patterned wallpaper and a large abstract piece of art create a bit of visual drama. And to make this foyer as functional as it is fashionable, we also utilized a Carrier Infinity system control, a smart home system that can manage heating and cooling, along with humidity levels, airflow, ventilation, and indoor air quality.

When designing a mudroom, it’s crucial to think about how the space will actually function (even if that space happens to be virtual). And with a long and narrow layout, we had to get creative when it came to carving out storage and seating. We started by bringing in clean-lined cabinetry from California Closets the offers lots of room for coats, shoes, and other necessities. The contrasting black and light oak finishes add a unique design detail, while the built-in upholstered bench is a must-have that looks marvelous. The other details, like an inset checkerboard floor of travertine and marble, sculptural lighting, and a gallery wall of tonal artwork from Minted, also elevate this area from a simple space you pass through to a stylish addition.
For Bobby’s final space, we had back to the front of the showhouse. The covered porch flanking the home’s entrance is intended to complement the symmetry of the architect’s design while providing two distinct areas for lounging and entertaining. Each outdoor sitting area features transitional furniture, with a loveseat and teak coffee table on one side and a pair of lounge chairs and a side table on the other. Both are grounded by a classic striped rug and finished with neutral accessories and a collection of lush, potted plants from Monrovia.
