The low light and rich tones of this dining area create an intimate look and feel. A buffet flush with the wall serves as a wet bar while a pair of lamps on each end contribute light and illuminate the wall art. Two dark, neutral armchairs with tufted backs provide cozy and sophisticated seating around the rich wood table. The focal point of the design is an eye-catching chandelier with yellow petal-like stems.
Coordinate small extras with your existing black and gold palette. Interior designer Jade Joyner, co-owner of Metal + Petal in Athens, Ga., placed matches with black tips into small apothecary jars, and arranged them on a gold bar cart.

As seen on Home Town, homeowner Amber Hayes' Laurel, MS existing living room was dark and closed off due to the old blinds and plastic green shutters on all the windows.

Plenty of cabinet space provides storage for the homeowners, while a large kitchen island provides extra counter space, as well as extra seating.

Furnishing a living room with a nearby staircase can present a traffic flow obstacle. Similar to hallways, it's best to think of staircases as high-traffic areas requiring at least 36 inches of clearance. Rather than outfitting the walls around a staircase with heavy furniture, try using them to showcase art or accent pieces, such as sculptural chairs or occasional seating in the form of ottomans or lightweight benches.

The walls received a custom Venetian plaster finish, a neutral choice meant to make the rest of the room’s contemporary furnishings shine.
