Home to two little girls and parents who love to entertain, this room needed to be family-friendly while still having a sophisticated feel for their guests. The curvy lines of the whitewashed console table are elegant but relaxed. Tufted cube ottomans are stowed below for extra seating.
The goal of this home makeover was to update, lighten and make a more useable space for the family who live here. In this living room, light red brick pairs handsomely with white shelving and a pale wood floor.
A basic wood cube is cheaper than buying an upholstered or leather ottoman. So Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse did a quick and easy fix. She covered the top of a cube she bought from a discount home decor store with a piece of sheepskin, which creates a comfy spot for feet to rest. You also can find faux fur at a fabric shop and buy just enough to drape over the top. For even greater savings, you can build your own ottoman out of plywood.
A window lets in the perfect amount of natural light to frame this sitting area. Beige curtains surround the window and compliment the neutral tone of the carpet. A blue chevron blanket and a patterned pillow decorate the arm chair for a relaxed but stylish look. A cube leather ottoman with thick stitching and a small metallic table add texture to the area.
Three smaller scale cube ottomans covered in a grid design fabric sit under large eccentric wall art on one wall of the dining room. The mobile ottomans offer “emergency seating” for extra large gatherings at home.
A pair of smaller cube ottomans covered in a grid pattern fabric sit under a shell white curved-top console table just off the great room’s seating area. Large 48 x 48 custom art by artist Celery Jones hangs above and brings the scenic Texas landscape inside.
Ceiling paneling gives beautiful levels to this deep, masculine living room design. The reflective quality of the ceiling finish allows the light to bounce down onto the leather sofa and pair of leather arm chairs with matching cube ottomans. A patterned area rug adds great personality to the solid tones of the furniture.
A large tufted coffee table tops a colorful striped rug in the center of this living room. Cube ottomans double as extra table space and add to the mix of bright, colorful stripes. A geometric table below the mounted television brings a modern component to the room and blends with the light wall color.
The bright entryway of this modern living room features a bold painting. The sharp edges and reflective metal of the console table are offset by two square ottomans covered in deep blue velvet. featuring sharp edges and reflective metal are offset by deep blue velvet.
