A simple glass coffee table serves as a muted backdrop for this living room's bold prints like its black and white striped sofa. Accents like books, freshly cut flowers and candlesticks add to a room's character.
A glass-top coffee table with a white metal base keeps this living space feeling open and bright thanks to its minimalist, airy design. Hot-pink seat cushions and Kelly-green throw pillows pop in the mostly white space. A gray-and-white-striped rug defines the living room and adds warmth to the tile floors.
It's amazing to think that this contemporary outdoor space was once a forgotten unused area. The design firm, A Blade of Grass, kept some existing materials, including the wood decking. The existing fence was updated with horizontal cedar cladding, which provided a clean, uniform backdrop. Garden stools also are an affordable, bold accent for a patio.
If you want to prevent a traditional room from looking too stuffy, try adding a pop of modern. The ghost chair in this living room maintains a traditional feel with its classic form yet adds a touch of modern with its lucite material.
