Ahhh... what a great place to relax! This living space features a lovely brick fireplace, the central focus of the room. Green window treatments and plants and flowers in the room echo the outdoors, creating a natural feel. Put your feet up on the upholstered ottoman while watching TV or just chat and admire the art pieces in the room.
Imagine yourself sitting back in this white-leather tufted armchair. Take your feet off the soft shag rug and put them up on the cushy ottoman. Now enjoy the tree-lined view out of the expansive wall of windows. When the sun sets, switch on the gold-gilded floor lamp and relax some more.
To give subtle color to this white media room, designers used blue in varying shades—from palest sky blue to deep midnight. A wall of open shelving makes lots of display space; cabinets on the lower half add handy hidden storage.
Thin stripes give a tailored appearance to these inviting armchairs, especially when matched up with the simple wood ottoman and black-and-white, diamond-patterned rug. The stripes also echo the board-and-batten paneling along the back wall.
Dark wicker furniture contrasts the white brick walls of this charming outdoor area. White sofa cushions brighten the furniture and a large fern adds color to the space. A rustic wood railing doubles as a flower box for convenient gardening.
This airy white loft living area features a sawhorse table with a pair of matching lamps, a coffee table made of two kiln-dried teak ottomans with basket weave leather-strap tops and a contemporary gray sectional.
A bold ceiling patterned and striped floor grab attention in this powerfully pink nursery. A hot pink chair pulls out the darker pink hues in the floor and matches the name wall art above the crib. A white ottoman is a nice solid detail against the patterned floor and compliments the white furniture. A dainty chandelier lights up the room.
A large tufted coffee table tops a colorful striped rug in the center of this living room. Cube ottomans double as extra table space and add to the mix of bright, colorful stripes. A geometric table below the mounted television brings a modern component to the room and blends with the light wall color.
When you have a TV above a mantel, your decor space is limited. But you can warm up the spot with greenery. Use preserved boxwood globes, which are sold by many retailers for $50-$75, for a lush look that's long-lasting. The size of the boxwood topiaries also provide a contrast with the tall mantel, says Michelle Mentzer, owner of Miles Design Group in metro Atlanta.
