The living room of this Point Lorna, California, villa home features interior details which allow accents of the verdant courtyard gardens to carry throughout the house. Here the chartreuse of a floral painting complements the sun-lighted flowering branches framed by a window, while below, a fireplace is lined with firewood, its texture reflected in plush wicker lounge chairs decorated with soft teal pillows that match the greenery peeking inward through a glass door.
Pack some serious visual impact by giving a basic flat-front dresser designer flair with a painted chevron pattern in three, five or seven of your favorite paint colors. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, the dresser takes the purple of the wall and the pink from the pillow and combines them with lighter shades of purple for a fun and vibrant accent piece.
Designer Kimberly Lyons wanted to create pops of colors in the family room to vivify the neutral walls, woodwork and sofas. The dark salmon accent wall is a warm and inviting tone without overtaking the room. Surprisingly, the colors in the accent pillows on the sofas work well with it, with the area rug tying all the colors together for an overall pleasing effect.
A clean-lined, upholstered bed is layered against a built-in upholstered panel, giving this transitional California bedroom depth and polish. Large-scale art leans against one wall for a casual vibe, and a plate glass window offers stunning views of the lush yard. A petite, tufted bench and graphic pillows bring a punch of rich color.
Imagine laying one's head down on this comfortable-looking chaise for a bit of needed repose. This lounge chair is perfect for a large bedroom, or for a small one, but either way, it will make a grand statement in the room. The pillow, artwork, and blue vase also add to this restful scene.
To create a larger, more open feeling to this master bathroom, designers took full advantage of the large window, positioning the bed in front of the window, creating a focal point. To help the homeowners control the natural light let into their space, designers hung curtains to act as a diffuser. Comfort was added to the space with a soft, velvet rug and a fuzzy blanket and pillows, while the unique artwork adds texture.
A wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area became a newly found space with the design of this cozy space. By adding a floor, designer Kristina Crestin was able to carve out this little nook. A deep, long window seat with pillows and reading lights is perfect for lounging. Bookcases were built in to the awkward sloped ceiling, creating one of the kids most favorite places.
The wood grain porcelain tile floors are soften by a natural fiber rug in the living room. Blue and white upholstered furniture plays into the coastal palette, while nautical elements –– the mounted marlin and anchor throw pillows –– crank the seaside theme up a notch.
The beautiful shape of this gray armchair is timeless, stylish and perfect for a contemporary design. The bright yellow legs of the small side table pop against the gray fabric. A patterned throw pillow and graphic rug add color and movement to the space.
In the smaller guest bedroom, designers chose a neutral color palette to reflect the natural light of the large window and make the space feel larger and more open. A navy and white patterned bed frame was installed, making the space feel warm and welcoming, while a yellow and white pillow adds a splash of color and contemporary table lamps and modern nightstands bring stylish elegance into the room.
Blues take center stage in this classy living room, from the velvety sofas to the patterned pillows and even the coffee table books. Of course, there's no missing the zebra print sofa, which really livens up the soothing space. A flokati rug brings in a splash of whimsy, which is tempered by a clean-lined, contemporary coffee table. Flowering branches bring nature in and provide the crowning design touch to the space.
The goal for this space was to create a room that both adults and children could be comfortable in. With the homeowners' two small boys, the space would need to contain durable fabrics and materials, so designers chose a sectional that could easily be wiped clean with lots of multicolor pillows for comfort. Then, they had a stylish, nylon carpet installed that won't stain and would match the aesthetic of the room, while remaining practical.
Creative Spaces Interior Design crafted this teenage retreat using color and eclectic furnishings for the family room. The turquoise blue of the walls and the cornflower blue of the sofa anchor the space allowing the strong stripe of the room's back wall to take center stage. The room's area rugs, pillows and artwork pick up the colors in the stripes (orange, kelly green, royal blue and yellow) for an overall pleasing effect.
This living space is full of life and color with a pink and green color palette. Floral accent chairs flank a sleek fireplace, while a neutral area rug and printed throw pillows add more pattern to the mix. An acrylic side table and framed photo above the mantel give the room a fresh, updated look. The living room opens up in to a formal dining room complete with a decorative mirror and chandelier.
As seen on HGTV's Renovation Raiders, this stunning living room has been transformed into a media-free oasis, which is contemporary with a rustic feel. The deep blue walls evoke relaxation, yet there are plenty of cozy elements, including several throw pillows and a pretty blue and white area rug.
Twin gray velvet sofas with faux fur pillows offer comfortable seating in this Hollywood Regency-inspired living room. A modern console table is elegantly designed with two twig-like structures on either side of the mounted television and a collection of candles and floral arrangements in the middle. A mix of natural light and recessed lighting illuminates the space. Designed by Emily Mackie of Inspired Interiors.
Designer Debbie Talianko designed this transitional living room with touches of the beach and sea, particularly in the soft greens and blues she chose to accent the room. The white sectional sofa and cream walls give the space an airy feel and allow pops of colors in the pillows, area rug and dining room upholstery to take center stage. Also noteworthy is the beach-themed art that punctuates the wall behind the sectional sofa.
Framed photos, plates and a lantern candle holder create a lovely mounted display over the wall. A gorgeous wood finish on the couch is balanced with a soft green seat cushion and matching throw pillows. A pattern on the wood floor contributes additional warm tones for an inviting and artistic look.
