Black windsor chairs and a rustic wood dining table look out to the contemporary open living room. Floor to ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light and offer views of the backyard from both living and dining areas.
The living room in this luxury townhome is designed with an open concept leading to the kitchen. The white crown molding, recessed lighting and leather accents draw the eye to the nearby kitchen that features a dark wood tone.
A light color palette makes this open concept living area and kitchen feel bright and open. A tobacco stick chandelier delineates a small dining area in the kitchen, and sailboat artwork in the living area serves as a nod to the apartment's coastal location.
A neutral transitional living room flows into the open concept kitchen with bar seating. Complimentary colors unify the two spaces. The recessed ceiling adds drama and makes the room living room appear larger.
This living room opens to the kitchen, creating an open concept design. White and blue are seen throughout these two space, creating a light, fresh and airy look. The transitional design brings a timeless element into this home.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna wanted to make this family's living room brighter and more open, so they knocked out the walls that had once separated the living room from the foyer, creating an open concept floor plan. Then, Joanna added durable leather furniture to keep up with the family, a rustic buffet with a gallery wall to welcome guests into the home, patterned rug and pillows to make the space fun and bold pops of color to keep the space bright.
The open concept plan of the home's first floor allows the kitchen and living room spaces to feel open and connected. With a straight line of sight from one room into another, designers were able to create a space for the family that has both daily functionality as well as functionality as an entertainment space.
Previously, the kitchen and living rooms were separated from each other, but when Chip and Joanna of HGTV's Fixer Upper redesigned the space, they moved the fireplace to open up the spaces. Now, the fireplace serves as a feature that makes the living space nice and cozy, and there is a clear line of sight from the eat-in kitchen to the bright, elegant living space.
This home's kitchen and dining areas flow seamlessly into the primary living room, making the neutral space conducive for entertaining. The living room's taupe sofas and beige armchairs provide ample seating for guests.
The living room needed fun, durable seating to accommodate the family's teenage son and his friends, so designers added a tough, blue sectional and faux green leather ottoman that doubles as a coffee table. To provide display shelves, shelves were built into the half-wall separating the kitchen and dining room from the living room. These shelves are made of dark, rich wood, which, along with the white walls, ties this space into the rest of this family's 1920s Spanish home.
