This gold contemporary coffee table features a glass topping, allowing visitors a peek at the neutral patterned area rug below. Yellow and gray hand blown glass vases sit atop the table with other decorative accents.
In this living room, to create a light backdrop for the furnishings, designers selected a pretty neutral for the walls: Benjamin Moore White Dove. The pale color also helped showcase the unique black-pained windows.
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.
A large black bookshelf makes a striking home for this living room's books, photos and artwork. To temper its dark color, the rug and pendant are light. The golden coffee table is a nice balanced note between the two extremes.
