Another splurge in the design was custom framing for the fine art photography. Black lacquered framing was chosen to coordinate with the black accents of the room, while an inset turquoise fillet — the accent molding that fits inside a larger frame and usually sits on top of the mat — helps highlight the blue tones in the art. Since the room receives ample sunlight, non-glare acrylic was chosen rather than glass to protect the art from UV rays.
This refined living room showcases lots of art, from the brass sconces above the wood framed fabric art on the left side of the room, to the floor-to-ceiling black-and-white photography gallery wall on the right. Comfy, neutral sofas and velvet armchairs share a modern coffee table beneath a floral-inspired, pendant light.

To create the formal living room, designers chose key pieces of unique furniture to define the room. Then, they completed the design with an eclectic mix of art, objects and photography to give the living space a gallery-like feel. To give the space a more completed look without blocking the natural light, sheer drapers with a subtle pattern was added to the windows.
The sofa is a key element in a living room’s design. It anchors the space and provides a place for the family or guests to come together. A matching red leather love seat helps define the room around the coffee table and facing the flatscreen television. Above the TV, large silver globes create a unique, 3D decorative element to draw the eye.
The home's entry flows into the formal living room, so designers went with a simple design to give the space an open, airy and uncluttered feel. A simple, modern bench with muted colored pillows, soft colored artwork and a gray rug define the space and usher guests into the home's living room.
