A large wall art sketch creates an eye-catching accent wall in this modern sitting space. A pair of modern leather chairs with matching ottomans are placed over a square pattern rug. A glass top table holds books and simple decor to finish the space and separate the chairs.
The subtle grid pattern on the area rug echoes the patterns found in the Scrabble board and cube coffee tables. Using the same shape in different ways throughout a space brings continuity and keeps the eye moving throughout the room.
A black front door create a beautifully bold contrast against the white walls and ceiling of this entryway. Uncovered windows framing the door flood the space with light highlighting the already bright look of the design. A square rug adds decorative color lying beside a simple table and large wall-propped mirror.
For a masculine and modern bedroom, choose a bed with presence and a strong, geometric shape, like this contemporary four-poster style. “A mix of geometric and organic patterns and shapes in the same deep color palette creates a sense of calm in this space and helps to ground and unify the various patterns in the rug, bedding and Fantoni lamps,” says designer Amy Lau of this elegant retreat.
In this 600-square-foot home, the living area doubles as an entryway and serves as the family’s main gathering space. A graphic rug anchors the seating area, and a roomy sectional sofa is covered in a durable, neutral fabric. Glass-topped wood cubes are lightweight and versatile as a coffee table.
This transitional living room features a vibrant red sofa decorated with blue and tan throw pillows. A square wood coffee table sits between a pair of blue and white upholstered armchairs and a tufted tan armchair, while a sisal rug covers the hardwood floors. Tan curtains and colorful artwork provide finishing touches.
This multi-purpose "do room" in HGTV Green Home 2011 includes a casual-chic seating area with two slipper chairs, upholstered in classic houndstooth print. They sit atop a carpet-square rug and a Grecian key fabric throw pillows rests on each chair. A natural wood lamp with iron stud accents and linen shade provides additional light on overcast days. A barn door, constructed of beetle-kill pine wood, separates the room from the first floor.
Modern white leather chairs with matching ottomans are set over a square pattern rug. A glass table with distressed green legs split the chairs and support coral accent decor. Statues are displayed on small floating shelves lining the wall.
Statues are lined on floating shelf platforms for an artistic decorative display in this sitting space. Below the statues, short wall tables help blend the black wood floor with the bright white walls. A square pattern rug pads the floor below a white leather chair.
A trio of windows are covered with bamboo blinds and framed with neutral curtains for full control of the natural light let into the room. A white sofa, white chaise and pair of chairs face in toward a leather trunk coffee table to create the sitting area. A square patterned rug decorates the black wood floor.
This bedroom features neutral tones with blue and gray accents. Highlights include a thick textured rug, headboard combining upholstery and wood, hardwood floors, a textured blue square ottoman, and a modern Parsons-style nightstand and framed mirror in gray.
