Designers aimed for a masculine living room that emphasized clean lines and maximized space for entertaining. They hit the mark with this mixed-use living space featuring contemporary furnishings and versatile track lighting.
Comfortable floor cushions make for unique and versatile seating in this living room that opens up to an outdoor living space with beautiful views. Contemporary outdoor furniture sits in front of an elevated fireplace, while a large table makes the space perfect for entertaining.
A two-toned gray rug defines the seating area in this modern living room designed for entertaining. Walls of windows bring in loads of natural light and emphasize the home’s modern architecture. Furniture includes versatile glass-topped tables that add to the space’s openness.
An oversized upholstered ottoman packs a powerful design punch in this kid-friendly living room. The soft performance fabric coordinates with the tonal blue on the walls, art, and other textiles in the space. The ottoman is versatile for entertaining, relaxation or for the kiddos to jump and play on.
To give the homeowners a more versatile courtyard space, designers added a sitting area next to a fireplace, adding a three seasons patio for entertaining. Bright red cushions and pillows in this area pop against the neutral colors that traditionally adorn Spanish Colonial homes, bringing in the modern touch that the homeowners love.
Featuring both a lounge area and dining space, the covered patio offers versatile entertaining with striking ocean views as the backdrop. For a more intimate setting, curtains can be drawn to provide both shade and privacy. Suspending from the ceiling, three layered pendant lights add texture and interest to the contemporary design.
A built-in bar runs the length of an end wall in this versatile game room, which takes advantage of sliding glass doors that open the space to the resort-like backyard. A pool table, wall-mounted TV and bar with seating create the ultimate entertainment space in this luxury Texas home.
A trio of bookshelves frame the TV, giving the appearance of a custom entertainment center. Plenty of plush pillows on this small sectional make it perfect for cozy couch time. Two small side tables are more versatile and take up less space than a traditional coffee table.
A neutral palette provides a backdrop for dramatic turquoise and burnt orange accents in this transitional, beachside living room. The homeowners wished for a relaxing, versatile space for reading, hanging out and entertaining friends. Display cabinets and storage nooks add extra function to the room, and custom teal leather swivel chairs allow easy conversation and enjoyment of ocean views. Reclaimed wood niches maximize seating in the room.
For homeowners who love to entertain, it was an easy decision to convert the main floor of this house into an open concept layout. The floor plan combined three separate rooms (living and dining room and kitchen) to create a versatile space ideal for large parties. Bright yellow accents are an energizing finishing touch.
