Layering plants and ceramics against a variety of wood textures creates an inviting living space full of interesting details. A wood cutting board complete with limes and cocktail mixers makes this space ready for entertaining at a moment’s notice.
Sweeping ceilings are grounded by the stacked stone fireplace and exposed wood beams in this rustic, inviting living space. A pair of traditional wingback chairs add a burst of orange to the room, while a buttery yellow ottoman centers the space.
This calming and inviting living space features modern furnishings mixed with built-in media cabinets in gray. Natural hardwood floor grounds the space, with a neutral area rug stretching from the leather armchair and tufted leather coffee table to the long sectional sofa in crushed velvet.
An oversized sectional is paired with comfortable armchairs and a trio of hexagon coffee tables to create a warm, inviting living space. Large pieces of artwork hang above the traditional fireplace, helping to bring the two-story space to scale with the rest of the furnishings.
This inviting living space keeps an airy feel with light colors, textures and a soft brick accent wall with narrow windows. The extra large sectional on a gray area rug provides ample seating for guests as they enjoy a movie from the mounted TV in between natural wooden shelves.
In this inviting living space, designer Denise Davies of D2 Interieurs pulled her palette of watercolor-sheer colors from the natural surroundings and a stone fireplace elsewhere in the room. “In most of D2’s projects, we begin with a neutral base and then infuse color through the accessories in a very thoughtful way,” say the designers.
This neutral, inviting living space features two seating areas defined by two matching area rugs. Hardwood floors give a rich warmth to the room paired with a classic chandelier overhead. A more contemporary gray leather sofa and coffee table is positioned on the left side, with a classic, cushioned sofa in white with a heavy wooden coffee table on the other.
Looking over the stone kitchen countertop the room opens up into a spacious and inviting living space. The beige tone walls give a calm feel to the design and keep the room bright in the natural light. A contemporary chandelier draws the eye to the high ceiling. A black and white Buddha canvas is a fitting touch for the serene and stylish decor.
Renovation pros Erin and Ben Napier are saving old homes and helping build community in their small, secluded and beloved hometown. In this project, their clients are a new-to-town family of five. Ben and Erin update a rundown 4,000-square-foot Craftsman cottage into an eye-catching and stylish home that features a gorgeous open-concept kitchen, inviting living spaces and a multifunctional family room.
Recessed lighting on the roof overhang provide plenty of exterior illumination for this backyard swimming pool area. A contemporary fire pit at the foot of the pool services an inviting outdoor living space.
Another design goal for this home's remodel was to create inviting outdoor living spaces with easy access to the interior. Because of the temperate climate of southern California, these spaces will be usable all year long.
Assorted patterns and textures – from the solid green upholstered Chesterfield sofa and traditional lines on the fireplace mantle to splashes of color on the throw pillows, rustic influenced coffee table and candlesticks – combine to create an warm and inviting eclectic living space perfect or relaxing or entertaining.
Throughout the home's original living room and kitchen, heavy maple cabinetry with thick, floating crown moldings to match made the spaces feel old and outdated to the family, so designers modernized the spaces, giving both rooms a coat of white paint. Then, they gave the original cabinets a facelift, painting the lower kitchen cabinets black for contrast and giving the other cabinets a new white sheen. The cabinets were then rearranged to meet the design vision that created these beautiful, inviting, updated living space.
