In this white transitional living room, touches like the exposed beams and sliding barn door are charmingly matched with this mountain home's rustic setting. Behind the barn door, graphic wallpaper is a fun reveal.
The living room marries classic and contemporary design — a place where the homeowners could enjoy entertaining their friends, family and business associates. A monochromatic color scheme accented with soft blues and copper achieves the desired contemporary style, while the traditional element comes from taking full advantage of the restored building’s wood paneled walls and architectural details.
An excellent way to keep a deep, rich look without sacrificing light is to choose saturated shades of red then tone them down with an organic texture and a light accent color. Here, the cranberry grass-cloth walls infuse the room with much-needed color, keeping it bright with an all-natural appeal. Alternatively, the cool, blue-gray accents add contrast.
This transitional living room gets its oomph from its funky light fixtures. Their golden hues radiate throughout the room and create an interesting complement with the modern artwork over the fireplace. The colors are soft, muted and have a comfortable and stylish appeal.
Light colored walls and curtains in this transitional living room help emphasize the L-shaped couch as the focal point. The patterned chair, rug and pillows help liven up the neutral palette in this cozy space.
