Various woods and leathers meld to create the welcoming mood in this cozy traditional living room. Calm the eye by breaking up harsh angular lines of architectural features with soft curvy pieces and accessories like these opposing camel-backed sofas and round copper mirror.
Dark brown leather furniture, brown and grey upholstered chairs, and black marble wall tile coordinate with the room's light brown wall color and wood bar area to create a brown color schemed living room with neutral tones. Neutral walls and drapes help balance the room.
Rustic Neutral Living Room with Brown Exposed Beams
The wood beams are left intact but the textured ceiling has been removed to reveal the original tongue-and-groove wood ceiling. The original hardwood floors have been restored, and new sconces, a classic model ceiling fan, vintage area rug and comfortable furnishings help create a warm and welcoming living space.
From the soaring ceilings and unique chandelier to the wall of windows complete with a pivot door, this modern living room may have minimal elements but it lacks nothing when it comes to interest. Wrapping the room in wood paneling and skipping an area rug intensify the design and give this space a one-of-a-kind look.
Warms woods are used on the ceiling and to create chic built-ins that provide storage for the homeowners' favorite books and artwork. Gray carpet with a subtle graphic design provides a neutral backdrop for the brightly colored furniture.
A wall of glass extends to the peaked, cathedral-height ceiling in this expansive Lake Tahoe great room, overlooking a view as picture-perfect as a holiday card. This mountain home is directly on the skyway, allowing residents ski-in, ski-out access. The structure's orientation on its high-elevation lot offers 180-degree views.
Just a little bit of brown can go a long way in a living room’s design. Cocoa brown and soft pastels are pretty accents in this living room that’s grounded by white walls. Designer Mariah O’Brien loves using white as a backdrop for a room with a variety of other elements like rich shades. “The white really makes an impact, as it’s a perfect backdrop for the other design elements we brought into the living experience," O'Brien says. Cocoa chairs and curtains add just a touch of brown to a room filled with pretty pastels.
This elegant living room is covered from floor to ceiling in lustrous wood for rustic lodge feel. A charming fireplace offers a cozy spot to relax with one of the many books that fill the built-in shelves.
