The glass-top coffee table is set over cubic wooden legs for an artistic, modern look. A faded gray rug, neutral furniture and white brick walls keep the space light and neutral. Cotton stems and greenery add beautiful texture to decorate the room and add a pop of natural color.
A thick blue cushion and line of throw pillows soften this wood bench for a comfortable outdoor sitting space. Ceramic stands create a decorative coffee table set up, and a metal end table adds a rougher texture to the serene design. Landscape lighting bounces off the glass retaining wall for a glowing effect.
A sleek glass-top coffee table adds contemporary flair to this traditional space. Table-top topiary, books and a mirrored table set provide a counterpoint to furniture in this transitional living room.
A living room set brings indoor luxury to this contemporary courtyard outside the HGTV Green Home 2012. The permeable courtyard surface, paved in crushed granite and a locally-sourced specialty slate mix, allows rainwater to seep to the home's subsurface drainage system.
Interior designer Jonathan Savage likes to use coffee tables that can serve multiple functions. This one serves as a small bar, with a tray with an ice bucket and glasses on one side. Then on the other side, a faux bois container on a pedestal adds height. "I don’t think a coffee table necessarily has to be home to coffee table books. You can set it up as a bar; you can set it up as a game table," he says.
The black and white pattern on this serving tray brings a mediterranean influence to the style of this simple and pretty display. The orange book cover adds a pop of color to bring dimension to the small set up.
A tone-on-tone neutral color palette sets the stage in this midcentury modern living room featured on HGTV Design Star. A tan sectional and pale wood tables are accented by a navy area rug. The low-slung furniture with clean lines and tapered legs are quintessential midcentury modern pieces.
For a family home in Houston, the designers of Laura U Interior Design created a comfortable seating area just off the kitchen. The team used color and accessories to create a cohesive look throughout the wide open area. “While the majority of the color palette is neutral, we weave a lively turquoise through each space: pillows and an area rug in the family, bar stool frames in the kitchen, and a show-stopping chandelier in the breakfast space,” they explain. “The entire space is further unified through the window treatments which are a combination of Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades and custom drapery with a turquoise band on the leading edge. A cheerful yellow and just a dash of orange set off the color scheme while touches of gold and a natural wood (teak root table and driftwood at the island) add eclectic charm.”
The outdoor living area also includes a pair of modern chaise chairs that include planters on opposite sides. Set across from each other with a rustic coffee table the deck becomes a relaxing and conversational seating area.
Use three different objects in the same color, in this case white, which saves you time and money instead of trying to find a matching set. Using moss in a bowl is inexpensive, long-lasting and elegant update.
