Before: This neutral living room is a great backdrop for an entertaining-ready winter space. With the right luxurious details and designer touches, it can be inexpensively transformed into a welcoming gathering place for friends and family.
Soothing neutrals set the scene for this cozy living room. Warm wood tables and woven baskets add texture to the room, while soft cream sofas are a comfy place to relax. Abstract art add a note of color.
A large beige sectional with chic black piping provides seating for the whole family in this farmhouse living room. Soft, neutral tones, classic furnishings and white built-ins give the space timeless appeal.
This elegant Traditional living room features a calm white and neutral color scheme with small contrast from the dark wood of the side table and chairs. Soft lavender walls tie in deep purple pops of color from the art and flowers and the lavender stripes of the decorative throw pillow.
Found objects are an eye-catching alternative to artwork above a mantel. You can replicate this look by layering discs, made of wood or metal, that you find new at discount home decor stores or while rummaging through items at thrift stops, says Donna Mathis with Haven Design Works. Look for ones with different sizes, which also can save money, instead of buying three large discs.

This living room combines urban themes with floral patterns and exotic accents giving the room a sense of adventure. Comfortable sofas flank wooden Craftsman-style furniture, red floral patterns, bongo drums, a black-and-white photo of the Empire State Building and a modern, multi-branched lamp.
Elegant simplicity describes this high-rise apartment. A custom cornice and drapery panels frame the large window and soften the room. Subtle metallic accents and reflective surfaces are the perfect finishing touch.
In the living room, designers wanted to create a timeless, intimate space for the homeowners, so they started with a patterned rug and chose pieces of furniture that had some of the same colors. Then, they implemented a mix of materials such as glass, wood, metal and textiles to make the space eclectic, yet soft and warm, creating a grand room that is still very homey, welcoming and comfortable.
Designers wanted to take advantage of the large windows in this home's living room, so they chose to use white for the walls to reflect the natural light, keeping the space bright. Then, they accented the space with patterned curtains and blue and gray sofas to warm the space with color.
