Open and inviting, this open concept living area is prefect for entertaining or relaxing as you enjoy the view. Crisp white decor is complimented with soft green and yellow hues while the urban style brings character and style to the space.
The updated entry offers a preview of the major transformation of this classic urban home that uses bold color and an efficient modern layout with good flow to create a beautiful city retreat packed with personality.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in this living room, devoid of curtains or blinds, frame the arresting city views like a giant piece of art. The stripped-down white sofa appears to float in the center of the space.
Exposed brick walls juxtapose against the cool, contemporary furnishings of this open living room. A sleek, stainless steel fireplace provides warmth to the space, while a deep oversized sectional makes for a cozy spot to retreat from the day.
You'll never get tired of the view this urban living room provides, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony just outside. A cozy shag rug provides a nice texture contrast to the white leather furnishings.
In this urban living room, less is certainly more. A modern sofa is paired with an animal print ottoman and textured rug in the simple seating area. The starburst mirror is the focal point on the poured concrete wall.
White shelves and walls create a clean aesthetic in a minimalist live-work loft for a photographer in New York City. The floors are American white oak. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
The design of this living room picks up the architecture's urban edginess—exposed beams, metal ducts—and incorporates them into the look. A spiral staircase leads between the two levels. The barstools and coffee table are metal, the sofa black leather with nailhead trim.
A long gray sectional is paired with a low glass coffee table and hardwood floors for this contemporary living room. Exposed beams bring a touch of rustic to the space, while white walls keep the room light and airy.
Mixing up the ceiling levels give this apartment a loft-like, airy feel. Huge windows let in tons of light and a streamlined metal-and-wood staircase with lots of open space doesn't block sightlines across the room.
The living area is a happy mix of different textures, including the natural wood and stone of the fireplace, the mirrored steel of the coffee table, the leather on the ottomans, and the silks, cottons and textured weaves used on the pillows.
