This light and bright living room features a gray tufted sofa paired with a striped armchair and an industrial metal coffee table. A woven rug is placed over polished concrete floors, while the open plan allows for easy kitchen and dining access.
For this Irvine, Calif., project, designer Jessica Bennett remodeled the family and dining rooms for $12,000. Traditional furniture pieces in kid-friendly fabrics make this a classic design that works for the whole family.
This master bedroom is simple yet oh-so-serene with neutral walls and furnishings. In addition to a chic sitting area with tufted, charcoal gray chairs and a fireplace, this space boasts a private loggia and an attached bathroom with his-and-her vanities.
The magic of this family room comes from the accents: Rich jewel tones in the pillows and artwork, a blue-gray coffee table. Overhead, a light fixture loops and folds in on itself, bringing movement and texture to the space.
It's easy to picture this living room as a family's primary gathering space. The large sofa is durable yet attractive, and throw pillows and blankets in multiple patterns add to the sense of casual comfort. Because the room and sofa are neutral, it's simple to execute a design change when the homeowners desire — just switch out art and pillows for a fresh, new look.
Glitz and glimmer steal the show in this art deco living room. A wood coffee table with a mirrored top turns knick-knacks into multi-dimensional art, while a cozy shag rug softens the many hard, metallic surfaces.
