One wall of this contemporary living room wall features wallpaper by Italian manufacturer Yolo, a modern take on old world peeling plaster. Filled with drama and goth details, this Los Angeles home is harmonized by a palette of black, white, gray and metallics. In this "rough luxe" living room, a tufted leather sofa brings an element of modern Baroque to the space, and the pewter coffee table was commissioned by a local fabricator.
The focus in this classic, casual family kitchen is to provide plenty of space for guests.

This soft, neutral living room features a rectangular glass coffee table flanked by two plush velour sofas.

The “V” pattern of the Fiberon Horizon Ipe boards creates an eye-catching floor design. Using the same composite boards as top rails provides a striking contrast to the white posts and visually connects the space. The wide flat top rail also doubles as table-top dining. Add in the outdoor kitchen, and this deck is sure to impress.
Ultimately, the small space didn’t keep Gladys from making her dining room into something special. All she needed was the right statement pieces. The hand chairs were perfect, she says, because they added more than a funky look to the space. “Not only are they eccentric-looking, they add texture to the room, along with the functionality of extra seating for guests.” The chairs contribute to the classic black and white color palette of the space, with the nails provide a striking pop of red that accents the entire room.
French doors open from the living room to the den, revealing a pair of stools upholstered in a custom fabric. A large blue linen ottoman also serves as a coffee table, and two Griffin club chairs with nailhead trim create a cozy sitting area. White sheers filter the natural light and draw the eye up to the coffered ceiling to heighten the space, while a blue-and-white cotton rug softens the hardwood floor.
In this contemporary California home, warm wood floors and a show-stopping marble wall with a two-sided fireplace creates a view that rivals the stunning ocean blue outside the picture windows.

This open concept room has a beautiful flow between kitchen, living room and dining room. Bright white walls (including painted brick) and ceilings keep the space feeling bright, while walnut floors provide a grounding warmth.

The open floor plan of this home includes a cozy living room in a window-surrounded nook.

A kitchen island provides a casual dine-in option in the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Wicker barstools add natural texture to the glossy white countertop, while playing into the coastal vibe of the home located in Jacksonville, Fla. The teal table setting coordinates with the formal dining room off to the side.
A master of mixing vintage treasures with modern decor, David made his house a home, one piece at a time. He cleverly laid two desktops across antique sawhorses to create a massive dining room table that can comfortably accommodate more than a dozen guests. A midcentury pendant hovers above a collection of flea market finds pulling the eye toward the room’s gorgeous built-ins and coffered ceiling.
Contemporary-style sofas, upholstered in durable Sunbrella fabric, feature aluminum frames and synthetic wicker bases — both recyclable.

As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Jo repurposed an old headboard, found at the house into a dispaly rack. Now painted white, the display rack matches the vintage-looking farm table, and serves as a display for plateware and decor. The neo rustic pendant light is a fun and stylish addition to the dining area.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
The neutral, modern kitchen in this open concept home is as functional as it is stylish. Stainless steel appliances make food prep and storage easy, while the honey wood cabinets provide stylish storage for the space. An "L" shaped kitchen island adds functional counter space, while leaving room for several barstools on one side and a small breakfast table on the other, giving the space two casual dining options.
