In an open floor plan, where walls are not in place, make sure the flow of the room makes sense. A pair of small armchairs and ghost end table visually divide the living room from the dining area without completely blocking the line of sight. Ivory tufted ottomans next to the armchairs help define the sitting area beneath a gray drum shade chandelier.
Designer Kari McIntosh Dawdy added two small barrel armchairs in turquoise blue velvet to accompany this shades of blue family room. They blend with, yet provide visual contrast against the medium blue walls for an unexpected yet entirely appealing design. Brass floor lamps and urn occasional tables, bold pillows and the pink tones seen in the dining area also give the room pizzazz.
This shabby chic sitting area has its area defined by the rug and is made up of an elegant sofa and antique armchairs as well a gold and glass coffee table. Behind this cozy area is a wood paneled wall with a tall painted clock and a small dining area.
A comfy, blue velvet armchair is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a good book. The small, lucite end table provides just enough room for a stack of books, and a shiny, metallic floor lamp offers extra light when natural lighting is not plentiful.
Originally, this living room fireplace was oddly clad in what appeared to be leftover Caesarstone countertop material—which made the far corner of the space feel dark and heavy. The designer refaced the fireplace with small white tiles, brightening the look of the entire room!
