This comfy sitting room has dark wooden paneling on the walls and dramatic beams on the ceiling. The furnishings are ornate and eclectic, adorned with vintage patterns and bright colors, and are positioned around a cozy fireplace and hearth.
HGTV's Property Brothers reupholstered vintage club chairs in an electric blue fabric to brighten the mood of this dark sitting room. Bamboo blinds, quirky tabletop decor and an industrial end table combine for an eclectic blend of styles.
The dominant palette in this sitting area is full of cool colors: gray and white. So to add an infusion of warmth, the designers selected brown leather armchairs, a cowhide ottoman and brass chandelier.
This sophisticated sitting room is located just off of the master bedroom, providing a spacious place for relaxation. White shelving lines the taupe colored walls and frames in a black fireplace, while soft, neutral furniture –– including a tufted coffee table and two swivel chairs –– allow for adequate seating options.
A large framed photograph is just as much the focal point as the Chicago skyline in the HGTV Urban Oasis 2011. The sitting room features a boxy sleeper sofa with sweeping city views thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows.
