A large black bookshelf makes a striking home for this living room's books, photos and artwork. To temper its dark color, the rug and pendant are light. The golden coffee table is a nice balanced note between the two extremes.

A large mirrored coffee table pops as the central element in this blue living space. Tall mirrors flank the white sofa, accessorized with a blue velvet pillow.
