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 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.
The upgraded fireplace is the star of this living room makeover. Cle tiles in a chic graphic pattern are the new surround; in gray and white, it's a handsome complement to the rest of the room's earth tones.
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.
Downstairs, the owners have access to a spacious finished basement with a family room, a true laundry room, a guest suite *and* a home office. A contemporary sectional and glass-topped coffee table make this space feel cool yet comfortable.
A rustic coffee table as a centerpiece within a sitting area adds handsome variations in tone and texture through a weathered and striking look. A timeless style, the table brings a sense of history while retaining the contemporary feel embodied in the ikat area rug and throw pillows. A transitional sofa and love seat and contemporary leather armchairs complete the ensemble.
