This living room in a historic home is nicely furnished but lacks the glamour and magic needed for a season of entertaining and inside time. Thinks of ways this winter to work with what you have but add small decorative touches: new glassware, a metallic bar cart, richer curtains and throws and pillows to bring warmth and luxury to your space.
Bright Living Room With Built-In Window Seat and Blue Accents
This transitional living room features a gorgeous built-in window seat with a blue cushion and several decorative pillows. Neutral curtains and wood plank walls frame the seat, while the rest of the living room features neutral furniture, blue accents and a sisal rug, giving the space a coastal vibe.
A traditional living room with a bit of modern flair features a great wooden console and an eye-catching metallic accent wall. A gallery wall with traditional art works the lamp into the mix, making the entire scene flow cohesively.
In the newly added living room, the family wanted a color palette that reflected the colors of the outdoors, since the French doors in the space lead directly to the back patio and pool area. Blue is the prominent color for the curtains and the upholstery, while greens accent the space, creating a mirror of the home's outdoor colors.
Hollywood regency meets country club chic in this spacious living room. A glamorous five-tiered chandelier is the centerpiece of the room, while a palette of Robin's egg blue, teal and metallics play beneath.
Living Room With Bay Window and Orange Velvet Sofa
The inspiration for the living room came from the classic, Victorian architecture and bay windows that faced the street. A custom light fixture made of blue glass can be seen from the sidewalk. The sofa was a vintage find that was re-upholstered in a velvet orange fabric. A highlight for this room is the custom designed fireplace made out of hot-rolled steel.
What started as an empty, white-walled space is now a lively blue and green living room. The walls are a pale blue, with a light green on the ceiling and in the backs of the built-in bookcases. Pale blue chairs and an ottoman covered in blue-and-green circles give the room a cozy vibe.
Blue Mid-Century Modern Living Room with Custom Art
The living room features the original refinished hardwood floor, new curtains, and blind, updated furnishings and custom art designed by Mia's younger son Bryce. Host Erin Napier said the floors had to be sanded three times to get the old dark stain completely removed to allow the natural color of the wood to show again.
Earth-Toned Transitional Living Room With Bay Window
This inviting living room features a large bay window, allowing natural light to flood the space. Brown curtains frame the window, while a blue sofa with light brown leather pillows is positioned in front. Two modern end tables are place together in front of the sofa, creating a coffee table-like surface.
Transitional Family Room With Bold Blue Armchair and Built-In Bookshelves
Natural light illuminates this family room, showcasing a blue armchair with a fun white pattern. Built-in shelves display books and decorative items, while a woven rug sits atop the wide plank floors. An oversized abacus hangs on the wall, an ode to the homeowners' professions as accountants.
