A graphic area rug makes a bold statement and anchors the furniture in this contemporary living room. The rug's gray and white color palette is reflected throughout the furnishings from the upholstered bench and sofa to the white armchairs with chrome details.
A neutral upholstered sofa and yellow patterned chair create a fun sitting area around a sleek transparent coffee table. Colorful patterns in framed art display additional color above the couch, complementing the various colors and patterns in the many accent pillows. Glass lamps with white lampshades sit on slim end tables flanking the sofa, blending into the white wall color.
No need to use a fabric rug in this outdoor space, given the orange and white-bordered rug painted on the wood deck. The cheery bright color scheme continues with the outdoor dining table and orange and white stools.
The new open concept dining area, kitchen and living room feel a million miles wide with white walls and no upper cabinetry. The rug is a visual anchor under the dining table and picks up the island's handsome blue.
With a little help from an area rug, those soft pinks and blues continue into the dining room. At the same time, walls of windows fill the space with natural light and ensure that it stays airy and bright.
Four beige armchairs circled around a glass coffee table make for an ideal conversation spot in this sitting room. An aqua blue rug brightens the dark space with navy blue walls and a dark wood fireplace surround. Dark wood built-in cabinets flank the fireplace to display art and personal treasures.
With a deep blue rug, leather armchair and marble fireplace, this cozy living room has the look and feel of a stately library. The light brown wall color provides a warm backdrop to the neutral furniture and bold accessories.
Arched doorways and a sectional help visually mark the boundaries between the living and dining areas and the kitchen while maintaining an overall open look. The blue rug and throw pillows are a welcome dash of color.
There are lots of white surfaces in this gourmet kitchen, but the combination of textures keeps the look dynamic: shiplap covering the range hood, marble countertops and a clean subway tile backsplash.
In addition to barstool seating, there's also an inviting round dining table near the open plan kitchen. Windows connect the space to ocean views as do the colors in the pretty, patterned dining chairs.
