Atlanta designer Heather Hogan Roberts took objects and decor that the homeowner owned to stay under her $500 budget for a living room makeover. She bought new curtains, a rug, and small furniture such as side tables and a woven stool used as an ottoman. Roberts, who owns Ivy & Vine, reworked and styled the existing accessories and furniture, which is a low-cost alternative to always buying new items to give a room a designer look.
The long white sectional is filled with white throw pillows for a padded finish to the sitting space. A white cabana cover shades the lounge area while keeping with the sunny and bright feel. A low Asian coffee table features sharp lines and a calm, neutral color. Wood cabinets built into the stone retaining wall provide easily accessible storage.
Wood shelves compliment the natural wood look of the coffee table centered in this living room. White woven chairs and a long, rectangular fireplace face into the table over a textured rug. A floor cushion, floor lamp and decorative plate catch the light and add metallic accents throughout the room.
A relaxing sectional sofa sits cozily in this neutral toned Asian-style living room. A large green curtain and wooden coffee table give the room an earthy feel, while red and orange pops of color keep the space exciting.
This Asian-themed outdoor living area mixes simple and traditional styles with modern technology, featuring a glass-enclosed fireplace and an outdoor television. Two sofas face one another across a low coffee table among various potted plants and lantern-inspired lighting.
A pair of textured love seats creates seating around a round, ribbed coffee table. Three red trunks double as colorful decoration and extra table surface, while a horse statue adds to the Asian feel of the design. French doors open into the room to provide access to the balcony and move fresh air and natural light into the space.
The robin's-egg-blue walls in this spacious living room complement the wood window casements and French doors. A bright white sofa, blue chair and midcentury-modern-style coffee table round out the room.
The sun's slow descent can be seen from this second-floor Spanish-style balcony. The seating area features a wicker sofa, two wicker chairs, a trunk that doubles as a coffee table and a round dining table with chairs.
In this yellow living room, a round coffee table is centrally located between two sofas and matching slipper chairs. The woven detail on the sofa and table are tropical in style but offset by more traditional pillows and decor within the room.
