The lady of the house wanted a place to stretch out and read so designer Leslie Hildebrand placed a tailored chaise by the picture window. The scaled paisley print repeats on the drapes and throw pillow.
Formerly a home office, this small space is better suited for a reading lounge or meditation room. The walls have received a fresh coat of gray paint. Soothing art, furniture and accessories were brought in to create a relaxing atmosphere.
This modern home theater features a flat screen television on a large, natural wood entertainment center. Two ivory chaise lounges provide the perfect space for relaxing, while two tripod lamps add to the movie-centric ambiance.
A slim chrome floor lamp with a white lampshade provides soft lighting for this cozy reading nook. A neutral chaise lounge creates a perfect spot to relax while colorful artwork adds a pop of color to this room's light color palette.
A creamy oversized chaise lounge is paired with a large tiered coffee table in the home theater of HGTV Dream Home 2010. Picture books, a red bucket brimming with apples and a basket of seagrass and foxtails create a compelling tablescape.
A chaise divides this living area up into two spaces: one for sitting and relaxing, the other with a table and chair to use as a desk. An open shelf in the center of the wall between the two areas helps visually to unify the room.
To add texture to the living room, designers brought in an oversized chaise lounge into the space to provide some extra seating. For color, art was added as well as a teal vase and a teal pillow. Neutral, patterned curtains were added to finish the space.
Telescoping glass doors open to the home's deck area. An adjacent wall of cedar panels showcases three flat-screen televisions, which are covered by motorized screens made to look like wall art. The vaulted ceiling visually expands the space and surrounding transom windows allow plenty of natural light to fill the room.
Blue accents are used throughout the home to freshen up its neutral palette without taking away the rooms' chic calm. Here, a chaise is an easy way to make an awkward wall into a comfortable seating area.
The living room's contemporary white upholstered chaise lounge, white floor lamps, antique wood side tables, and neutral floor to ceiling window curtains and window shades set the perfect sitting area for views of the outdoors and lake.
