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.
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.
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.
The arched entrance to the home includes an open archway as you enter the living room. Blue and yellow tones accent the neutral setting, with several glass pendant lights and recessed lights providing ambient lighting from above.
For some of your more important art pieces, use archival glass to prevent fading and consider spotlights, as seen here. Not only can this lighting accent the artwork but it will also serve as an alternative light source in the room.
The high ceilings in this living room brighten and open this space. A couch and ottoman over a floral rug create one of two seating areas. A love seat and a buffet round out the second seating area in this space. The natural light from the tall windows is enhanced with a tall floor lamp.
“What I love about the living room is we have a neutral sofa and deep blue chairs so I could play with the color palette by layering different blues in,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “But to make the blue not too masculine we brought in pops of really pale pink and it makes the whole space totally grounded.”
Taking advantage of the long corridor, two separate living space are created. A chic, low sofa pairs with a leather ottoman, abstract art and a contemproary chandelier for an sophisticated resting spot, while the seating area next to the window is a cozy conversation place.
