Two traditional-style wing-back chairs beautifully contrast with rough-hewn ceiling beams in this rustic-Southwestern home. Large glass pedant lights draw the eye up and illuminate the hallway that lies in between the sitting area and the dining room beyond. A clever arrangement of artwork lines the wall of the hallway for visual interest.
In the sitting room of this lovely cottage, blue tones create a warm, soothing space. Plenty of sunlight streams into this sitting rom from the doors along the back wall, brightening the room and giving it an elegant glow. The sofa and chairs are covered in a comfortable, blue linen that complements the color of the walls creating a cozy space for good conversation.

A faux sheepskin graces the back of a simple black chair in this living room. The chair, half of a pair, complements the black-and-white-striped canvas storage bins on the bottom of the console table. Tiffany-blue lamps flank a white framed mirror.
Beaded chandeliers and sculptural coral add textural, coastal elements to this classic dining room. Linen slipcovered dining chairs give off an air of elegance and effortlessness that matches this room's sophisticated-yet-beachy design.

This open plan living and dining room doesn't get a lot of sunlight, so designer Matthew Cane used soothing cool tones to help visually brighten the look. He also selected items that could do double duty in the multi-functional space: the blue-gray dining chairs work well in the living room when there's a need for extra seats.
A contemporary floating bench is the eye-catching piece in this blue living room. Painted chair backs are attached the the tufted surface to give the illusion of an upright chair, while a comfy window seat with yellow throw pillows add extra seating behind.
What started as an empty, white-walled space is now a lively blue and green living room. The walls are a pale blue, with a light green on the ceiling and in the backs of the built-in bookcases. Pale blue chairs and an ottoman covered in blue-and-green circles give the room a cozy vibe.
The owners' love of the sea and all things natural are showcased in vibrant style in this Floridian dining room. Handmade cane seat chairs and a matching Asian-inspired table provide a fashionable seating arrangement for guests. A shell embellished mirror adds drama and depth to the space.
Enjoy plenty of light in this window-filled corner as you sit in the dark bamboo chair with blue and white cushion and upholstered back at this marble-topped desk with curved wooden legs. A dark hardwood floor and neutral textured rug further the calm color scheme.
