Updated Traditional Country French Living Room Featuring High Exposed-Beam Ceilings
Full of grandeur, this French Country living room features many special elements, including an 18-foot beamed ceiling, clerestory windows, recessed floors and arched doorways. Neutral tones and whites keep the space airy and bright, despite the multitude of furniture and accessories.
Neutral French Country Living Room with Reclaimed Wood Beams
The wood beams in natural finish and the simple but elegant furnishings provide contrast and give the room a whole new life. The beams are from reclaimed wood that came from Sweetwater Mill near Huntsville, Alabama. The lumber specialist estimates that the tree from which the lumber was milled was 250 to 300 years old when it was cut down.
Neutral French Country Living Room with Whitewashed Fireplace Surround
The real show piece in the new living room is the newly designed but old-world inspired fireplace. The surround was built out using vintage bricks and covered in white mortar for a whitewashed and textured finish that makes it look as if it had been there for generations.
Fixer Upper hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines transformed this living room by opening up the space, creating a better flow into the dining room. By moving the air conditioner to the attic they were able to open up the hallway behind the wall and move the door from the dining area to the living room. The original hardwood floors were kept and refinished, and a window in the dining room was replaced with French doors.
Large Living Room Features Intimate Seating Arrangements, Glamorous Details
Designer Phillip Silver selected a quartz chandelier from Portugal, mirrored table top and antique commodes to add appeal to this fashion-inspired living room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. The furniture is arranged in multiple seating areas to encourage intimate conversations in a room ready for a glamorous party.
In this sitting area, a mix of patterns in neutral colors give dimension and interest to the space without being overwhelming. A simple iron and glass coffee table provides a blank canvas for the books and accessories on top.
Sophisticated Living Room Evokes French Country Style
This neutral living room embraces soft, overstuffed furniture with traditional turned legs. In the corner is a industrial-style table with wheels and gears, which is the perfect contrast to this elegant space.
HGTV Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines painted the original fireplace brick white and added shiplap paneling and a natural wood mantel. The living room is dressed with French Country accessories, books and topiaries.
Burnt Orange and Watermelon Pink Furniture Inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Fashion Line
Designer Phillip Silver selected watermelon pink and burnt orange colors that were prevalent in Yves Saint Laurent's 1966 Rive Gauche line for the furnishings in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 living room. The colors add a fun contrast to the view of the backyard and San Francisco Bay beyond.
This lively living room boasts a French country vibe with colorful accents, like the modern art above the sofa and zigzag area rug. A natural wood plank ceiling features metallic track lighting, while a pine tree next to the sliding glass door offers a festive Christmas touch.
