Neutral Contemporary Living Room With Large Sitting Area
Two large sofas and a pair of armchairs make for plenty of seating and great views of the ocean from this neutral contemporary living room. The sitting area is anchored by a large square coffee table topped with decor and books.
Transitional Indoor-Outdoor Living Space With Exposed Beam Ceiling
This serene living room features neutral upholstered sofas paired with an exposed beam ceiling and gray built-in bookshelves on either side of the fireplace. A large door opens up an entire wall to reveal the outdoor sitting area, creating an easy flow between indoor and outdoor spaces.
So many windows and a ceiling that angles up make the interior of this contemporary cabin feel as spacious as the mountain setting around it. A huge rug with a geometric pattern unifies the large living area.
The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.
Paneled walls add structure, dimension and a bit of modern panache to the living room of this charming New York farmhouse. During the historic home's full-scale renovation, the design team raised ceiling heights, opened up the floor plan and updated the house with a contemporary color palette and modern furnishings, like the sofa and chairs in this comfortable, livable space.
Since the living room and kitchen share a space, designers wanted to be sure that the designs in the spaces complemented each other, so they ran exposed beams throughout the space to give the spaces a tavern feel, while the neutral colors blend with the natural materials to create a cozy, lakeside cottage.
To truly make their apartment space their own, these homeowners showcased the artwork and accessories they collected over their travels, such as the vintage Hmong pillows on the sofa and the gallery wall above it.
This townhouse living room feels so cozy and texture-rich with its exposed brick wall, ceiling beams and pretty fireplace. On either side of the fireplace, twin ladder shelves add storage that still shows of the beauty of the brick.›
The designer for this living room wanted to create a visually bold setting that allowed for easy entertaining. The long narrow space features a tete a tete sofa in the center, open to both sides of the room for flexible socializing.
Contemporary Mediterranean Living Room With Green Sofa
In imagining the look of this living room, the biggest design challenge was its narrow shape and the low windows. Furniture couldn't go up against the walls, as it would block windows and doorways. The solution: Use the rug to center furniture in the middle of the space.
