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.
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.
The French Country-style family room features windows or French doors on three sides of the space that open up to the wraparound garden and ocean view. The garden is filled with edible plants and show flowers, including cutting beds and climbing roses, citrus trees and lavender bushes, grape vineyards and raised vegetable beds.
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.
The owner of this French Country home wanted to redesign her house to better fit her girly style, so she added some bold, stylish pieces to her living room. The milk-white deer head, the pink chair, animal hide rug and clear coffee table make a unique statement in the space, while the traditional fireplace, nude canvas chairs and elegant sconces keep the classy tradition of the French Country style alive in her home.
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.
This chic living room combines the best of relaxed French country style with sophisticated Parisian panache. A trumeau mirror, properly placed between the room's two windows, visually expands the space and reflects the adjacent dining room while a pair of linen-covered bergeres defines the seating area.
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.
Eclectic furniture and detailed molding on the ceiling make this apartment distinctly Parisian. A lighted mirror, herringbone wood floor and a distinctive chandelier make this room truly one-of-a-kind as seen on HGTV’s House Hunters International.
