This open concept dining room, living room and kitchen don't have a lot of square footage, so designers moved seating to the perimeter. A long dining table backs up to the wall with a banquette that transitions easily into the living room.
This living room is simple and inviting with its palette of soft browns and mixed textures. High ceilings and lots of windows make it feel light and airy and the red artwork pops off the cream-colored wall.
Red is consistently used throughout this space to break up the room while also tying it together. The bright red contrasts the white walls and sofa, and bare hardwood floor, but it also unifies the space with a common color.
Baroque gold table lamps add interest behind a white sofa in this living room. The lampshades pick up the dark wood tones of the coffee table and buffet in the adjacent dining room, tying the open plan living space together. A neutral palette is accented by red and chartreuse, creating a fun, yet sophisticated space.
Using a tinted paint primer first will help you master the perfect red walls. The open design and spacious feel of this room allows it to handle a bold wall color. Blue chairs create a classic color combination while white and black elements pop against the crimson background.
Though defined by white walls and hardwood floors, this entryway doesn't shy away from color. A large canvas with red, white and blue lines enlivens the space, while a couple of chinoiserie jars bring in a timeless pattern.
An excellent way to put a fresh spin on a space is to introduce contemporary art. While several key pieces in this transitional living room are classic, the art is more modern and clean. This abstract piece by artist Sally King Benedict brings contrast to the cranberry walls.

For their dining room, the homeowners wanted a space that would be a contemporary take on lavish Baroque style. Patterned silver wallpaper sets the tone. Red dining chairs and a glittering chandelier made of silver chain complete the look.
A sprinkling of metallics and sassy red accents perk up this sitting room's cool gray base. Shape plays an important role, too, in the room's overall look: the bars of the round coffee table, pillows with chevron stripes and globe pendant lights.
If you’re unsure what type of art is the best fit for your living room, try mixed-media pieces. Mixed-media art combines various genres, such as folk, abstract, photography and sculpture, to create something truly unique. Here, a piece by Courtney J. Garrett combines photography, paint and texture work to create a rustic vibe that’s also moody.
