At first glance, the elements of this eclectic sitting room don't appear to relate, but the chocolate tones of the artwork, wood furniture, rug and floor poufs and metallic details of the chair, console table and sconce help tie the design together.
Because the home's floor plan is so open, the designers used area rugs to delineate the living room, alcove and kitchen. Here, a large blue rug outlines the sitting area, which comes with two neutral sofas, two purple armchairs and a light wood coffee table.
The master bedroom has hardwood floors and a colorful area rug. A new chandelier, white shiplap walls and gray paint brighten the room and bring a modern feel to the house, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. Bright blue bed decor compliments the blue area rug and a floral throw pillow finishes off the bed with a pop of color.
Bamboo blinds and beige floor-length curtains all for total natural light control in this cozy living room. A soft blue sofa compliments the light tones of the room design and matches the blue stripes on the wood framed arm chairs. The furniture faces a gold framed coffee table over a large floral area rug. A thick fireplace surround is fitting to the grounded, traditional style of the room.
White lamps in front of the large scale painting above the vintage media cabinet balance out the lighter artwork on the opposing wall. The side tables and coffee table are round and allow for flow of movement against the strong right angles of the gray and red contemporary sofas and the media cabinet. Patterned throw pillows mesh the two sofa colors together and blend the red accent tone with the cool tones of the room.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn says this large area rug that helps anchor the dining room looks like a chunky Nordic sweater, handmade with black and gray jute and wool with eyelash fringe detailing. A premium nonslip rug pad underneath protects the weave and helps extend the life of the rug.
Separate seating areas defined and grounded by rugs help this large living room feel cozier. The room enjoys 180-degree views of Long Island Sound, which edges this Old Greenwich, Conn., home's property.
Here's a designer secret you'll want to steal: use a large neutral area rug to define your space, then layer on a smaller, printed piece for some visual interest. In this stylish sitting area, a pink oriental rug instantly enlivens the whole room and helps break up the clean-lined chairs, sofa and coffee table.
Because the home's floor plan is so open, the designers used area rugs to visually differentiate the living room from the dining area. From here, guests can see the stairs that lead to the second level as well.
Because the home's floor plan is so open, designer Kerra Michelle Huerta also used the couple's sectional to separate the living room from the formal dining space. A large area rug softens the floor below and complements the bright pops of coral, too.
This modern bedroom would feel right in place in the most luxurious of high-end hotels. Neutrals and grays create a soothing feel. The dramatic window treatments and oversized hanging light fixture make the most of the room's high ceilings.
