Open Plan Apartment Living Room With Silver Wallpaper
An eye-catching wallpapered wall becomes the living room's centerpiece and sets the stage for pops of red throughout the space. Surrounding neutral walls and furniture provide the perfect balance against the colorful accents.
In large rooms, pay close attention to the shape, size and scale of any featured artwork. When small subjects are placed across a generously sized room, they lose their impact and appear more as visual clutter than a focal point. Here, in the multipurpose workspace located off the kitchen, an oversized fiberglass Trojan horse grounds the space and creates a focal point from across the great room.
Blue and Pink Transitional Library With Striped Curtains
Blue and pink are a surprisingly grown-up combination in this handsome library, in part because of the room's sophisticated details: a plush Oriental rug, tailored armchairs, a delicate coffee table. Stripes on the curtains are a hint of a jaunty nautical touch.
Blush Contemporary Living Room With Ladylike Appeal
Soft, sophisticated and inviting, this living room displays a subdued color palette as its backdrop, with pops of color, pattern and accent pieces for pizzazz!

Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamor with its soft color palette and minimalist approach. The unusual shade of blush in the grass cloth wallpaper sets the tone for the room and allows the club chairs to make a strong, ultra-sophisticated statement. The mirror and the opaque glass chandelier add yet another modern touch.
Neutral pieces help to break up a pink palette in this sitting room featured in the HGTV Green Home 2011. The chair and floor lamp have strong but graceful lines, helping to offset the intensity of the pink.
