When designed smartly, open concept floor plans can still include multiple living spaces that hold unique character while also blending into the whole. Here, neutral walls keep the background out of the picture, letting the spaces be defined by the color schemes of their furnishings and art. Pops of turquoise and coral work to tie the spaces together in a seamless manner.
This eclectic living room features a collection of Asian, African and Indian pieces. The furnishings in the space are warm, comfortable and uniquely accented by a woven iron table and a fireplace with a marble mantel.
Neutral walls, a wood ceiling and a cement floor create a beautiful mixture of texture on this cozy back porch. A beige sofa is highlighted with striped throw pillows while a graphic rug blends beautifully and adds a soft touch of color.
A neutral color palette is highlighted by natural light and subtle yellow and red accents in this Asian-inspired living room. A white sofa with black sides is decorated with yellow and neutral throw pillows, and above the sofa, a long panel of artwork adds additional yellow to the space. A white coffee table, brown leather chair and tripod floor lamp complete the design.
With such high ceilings, the goal of designer Anna Williams was to introduce a dramatic piece of art that would be the focal point of the living space. The commissioned painting by local artist Sue Tilley perfectly incorporates the serene coastal feeling with washed out shades of aqua. A rustic black coffee table grounds the space and contrasts with the warm timber floors.
