A spacious living room in gray tones with lots of windows to let in the light. The transitional furnishing are arranged to create a conversational space or for television watching. Built-in bookcases provide ample space for storage and display
You can replicate this coffee table, seen in an Atlanta model home. Take six storage cubes or square ottomans, or even six crates, and place them next to each other, three to a row. Then screw them together from the underside and turn them over, says Donna Mathis, owner of Atlanta-based Haven Design Works. For an extra touch, you could add metal strapping around the places where the cubes or crates connect.
A palette of soft beige, lavender and rose creates a serene visual palette in this transitional living room designed by Julie Dodson. Faux painted cabinet doors conceal the built-in entertainment center, creating an artful backdrop for the sitting area.
For some of your more important art pieces, use archival glass to prevent fading and consider spotlights, as seen here. Not only can this lighting accent the artwork but it will also serve as an alternative light source in the room.
A modern fireplace flanked by built-ins and streamlined seating combine to form a neutral, transitional living area with understated glamour. Dark hardwood flooring grounds the space, while wide sliding glass doors connects it to the outdoors.
The arched entrance to the home includes an open archway as you enter the living room. Blue and yellow tones accent the neutral setting, with several glass pendant lights and recessed lights providing ambient lighting from above.
Wall-mounted antlers, a large portrait of a deer above the stunning fireplace, exquisite crown molding and a beautiful patterned rug give this creamy living room textural appeal, full of depth and detail.

Architectural details, from the coved ceiling to the arched windows, make a dramatic impact in this living room's design. Centered on the fireplace, the warm, cozy seating area combines a classic sofa and leather armchair with contemporary black-and-white chairs.
Off-white, neutral and black combine to create a wonderful palette for this living room. The fireplace features storage cabinets on either side to keep the space clutter-free. A neutral, tufted sofa and pair of neutral striped armchairs create cozy seating for after dinner drinks and conversation.
