To keep all eyes on the amazing waterfront views, the designers furnished this condo with understated, neutral pieces. Thus, in this central living space, a contemporary buffet pairs with a vintage map for subtle visual interest that doesn't distract from walls of glass.
Originally, this historic home's backyard contained a swimming pool that was damaged beyond repair, so after filling in the pool, homeowners wanted a fresh, new look. Designers helped the homeowners come up with a color concept, and began work on their New Modern design by defining entertainment spaces. In one corner, a custom barbecue pit with a concrete island makes the space perfect for grilling. In another, an intimate conversation corner welcomes guests. A putting green is the focal point of the space, but the central living space is this elegant sitting area created from sustainable furniture that matches the couple's eco-friendly lifestyle.
A transitional living room is softened by large comfortable seating and a lush Flokati rug. Giant windows bring the outdoors in, and the fireplace brings an added warmth and central focus to the space. A zebra-print chair is a punchy addition, and the TV makes this space an all-around perfect living space.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper: With the wall removed between the kitchen and the living space, the two rooms are unified and the home's entry opens directly onto a central area for dining and entertaining.
An open design and natural lighting keeps this living space inviting and connected while still allotting each room its own space. A central dining room features stainless steel chairs and an abstract black rug. A gray leather, tufted chair faces in to a living room with textured green and gray throw pillows and a grated black coffee table.
An open-plan living room and kitchen area, large floor-to-ceiling windows that optimize the skyline views. The family gathers in this central space for TV and games. The parents can also watch the kids play in the pool.
Thirty-foot ceilings, a stone fireplace and a massive picture window create a dramatic central living area in this spacious and secluded Tudor-style home. Comfortable furnishings and wood-paneled walls brings warmth and coziness to the space despite its airy dimensions.
A central color palette comprised of brown, cream and white ensures that this eclectic living room looks cohesive and inviting. Where an Art Deco buffet and trunk-style coffee table provide essential storage space for odds and ends, a midcentury modern armchair offers a seat for guests.
