The custom glass and metal cocktail table is a stunning centerpiece of the upper living room. The "fused" glass pieces are cast in 1" thick slabs and back lit with LED light, hardwired into the floor. The adjoining seating and lounge area make this space perfect for entertaining.
Within this open-concept home, ceiling heights help define the individual spaces. The ceiling stretches higher above the living and dining rooms and falls lower above the kitchen and bar. Warm wood built-ins, wood floors and wood furniture pieces make the midcentury-modern space feel cozy and inviting.
Two bold-colored accent walls create drama in this open dining and living room. Designer Candice Olson, host of HGTV's Divine Design, demonstrates how to tastefully use color in this space with bright blues and a jewel-tone magenta through accent walls, furniture upholstery and artwork.
This stunning contemporary home has a neutral exterior with an abundance of windows that showcase a grand spiral staircase, chic living room and other indoor spaces. A narrow backyard water feature showcases black stone accents, while a covered porch area provides the ideal outdoor space for relaxing.
Before deciding on accent pieces for your outdoor living room, be sure to take into consideration their shape. Since most sectionals, sofas or love seats are rectangular in shape, help mix things up a bit by introducing end tables in more geometric shapes to help break up the linearity.
Children's rooms offer a chance to be playful, more so than in adult spaces such as lounges and living rooms. For a touch of whimsy, a table lamp made of stacked teapots with a woven seagrass shade is at home atop the side table next to Orly's rocker. The playfulness is appropriate for a nursery, and the organic shade fits perfectly with the all-natural aesthetic geared toward adult guests.

The casual dining space centered in the great room of the 2015 HGTV.com Spring House is made warm and welcoming for guests with a layering of warm oranges, tangy yellows and small accents of blues for a cool balance. Citrus hues are gender-neutral since orange and yellow can take on masculine or feminine characteristics depending on how they’re applied.
To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
Built in 1822, this vintage Victorian evokes the romance of a bygone era with its high ceilings, original wide-plank floors, curved banisters and classic light fixtures. Despite its antique appeal, the home is appointed with a new chef's kitchen with a large island. Even rarer in a historic home such as this: a two-car garage and a great room with a vaulted ceiling.

Take advantage of vertical space in your outdoor living room by suspending hammock chairs from rafters and joists. These add an element of fun to the area and are just as fit for kids as they are adults.
The redesigned living room and kitchen looks and feels more like a single, contiguous space. Open shelving acts as a pantry for the baker's kitchen, keeping everything within reach. White upper cabinets are paired with teal lower cabinets for a bright, striking contrast.
This covered patio was transformed into a full-fledged outdoor living room by juxtaposing the hard surfaces with a mix of soft furnishings. For cohesiveness, the dusty tones of the brick were carried throughout the space as an accent color of blush pink set against a dominant hue of blue-gray.
An open floor plan creates a spacious feel in this bright, white Brooklyn apartment. The living room area is minimally furnished with just a small sectional, low coffee table and black floor lamp in true modern style.
The original kitchen of this home was dark, with next to no natural light, and closed off from the living room. During the renovation, the location of the kitchen was moved to be in the center of the house and walls taken down to create an open plan layout.
The large, open floor plan kitchen is a true heart of the home that combines with the dining and living rooms. Clean white countertops top the cabinets around the perimeter, while the center island is clad in neutral granite countertops. Gray-and-white glass tiles create a chic backsplash.
