A spacious living room in gray tones with lots of windows to let in the light. The transitional furnishing are arranged to create a conversational space or for television watching. Built-in bookcases provide ample space for storage and display
You can replicate this coffee table, seen in an Atlanta model home. Take six storage cubes or square ottomans, or even six crates, and place them next to each other, three to a row. Then screw them together from the underside and turn them over, says Donna Mathis, owner of Atlanta-based Haven Design Works. For an extra touch, you could add metal strapping around the places where the cubes or crates connect.
A palette of soft beige, lavender and rose creates a serene visual palette in this transitional living room designed by Julie Dodson. Faux painted cabinet doors conceal the built-in entertainment center, creating an artful backdrop for the sitting area.
Off-white, neutral and black combine to create a wonderful palette for this living room. The fireplace features storage cabinets on either side to keep the space clutter-free. A neutral, tufted sofa and pair of neutral striped armchairs create cozy seating for after dinner drinks and conversation.
Soft gray walls provide the perfect backdrop for this living room. A barrel-style chair, upholstered in a neutral-colored fabric, offers a comfy place to read, socialize or just be. An upholstered X-bench can pull double duty as an ottoman or extra seating.
For areas where you spend the most time entertaining, like family rooms and dens, wool and sisal rugs are the best options, says Merida Studio, because they are incredibly durable. The texture and depth of this rug from Merida's Wander Collection adds a counterpoint to the clean, angular, powerful lines and black-and-white composition of the space. This rug is a wool/sisal blend, which is not only durable but also sound absorbing and sustainable.
Wall-mounted antlers, a large portrait of a deer above the stunning fireplace, exquisite crown molding and a beautiful patterned rug give this creamy living room textural appeal, full of depth and detail.
Architectural details, from the coved ceiling to the arched windows, make a dramatic impact in this living room's design. Centered on the fireplace, the warm, cozy seating area combines a classic sofa and leather armchair with contemporary black-and-white chairs.
