Cheery Red Transitional Living Room With Mixed-Media Art
One of the most common mistakes homeowners make when arranging their living rooms is placing large pieces of furniture against the walls and leaving the center of the rooms open. Instead, consider a floating space plan that involves flanking your space’s focal point with proportionate seating and tables. This will keep the room balanced while also allowing direct access to the TV or focal point, like in this red transitional living room.
This light and bright living room features a brown velvet sectional and red circular positioned in front of a blue accent wall. A black arc lamp illuminates the space, while the fireplace has a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf on either side. Hardwood floors and a potted tree provide finishing touches.
The key to making rooms feel well curated and balanced is the proper mix of organic materials. Nearly every element in this room is made from all-natural materials, including the driftwood floor lamps, Belgian-linen upholstery, cotton draperies, rustic wooden nesting tables and aged-brass hardware.
A large wall mirror with a striking black frame makes this cozy living room look larger. A brick accent wall adds character to the space, which is furnished with neutral, contemporary-style sofas and two small green trunks for coffee tables.

Tan curtains and colorful artwork provide finishing touches.
Contemporary Living Room With Clean Lines and Asian Style
Designer Vanessa DeLeon skillfully and artistically plays dark against light colors in this contemporary, Asian-influenced living room. The rust red walls radiate an aura of warmth and accentuates the white sofa, red chair, and dark wood coffee table.
Before, this small living space lacked color and charm. The addition of all-new furniture injects character and functionality, while a textured wall covering adds new life to the living room's walls, ceiling and fireplace. To hide TV cords, an alcove is made from lumber and planks of paint-grade pine. Keeping the wires concealed inside the alcove allows for a seamless and sophisticated look.
This eclectic living room doesn't shy away from bold colors or bold patterns and the result is brilliant and eye catching. A repurposed wood cart makes an excellent coffee table and display surface for a collection of globes.
A pair of weathered green garden urns act as coffee tables, adding a touch of character balanced by a traditional sofa. The large window has a striped valance that evokes a Moroccan feel along with other accessories.
