The living room fuses function and form in a contemporary loft-like design by creating separate spaces within the large room. A stencil is used to create a dramatic feature wall, where a half-circle couch is the perfect spot for hanging out.
"The eclectic contrast of color, pattern, even the mix of modern and traditional, gives this apartment character, personality and soul," said HGTV Design Star judge Candice Olson. The split wall is painted with a light blue on top and a darker turquoise on bottom. The plush red, pillow-like coffee table is a unique piece that highlights the room's red accents. The brown and white area rug brings a larger floral pattern to the room of solids.
Transitional Living Room with Orange and Turquoise Accents
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.

Designer Mary DeWalt created this showstopper using a neutral background with bright pops of blue and green.

Vintage curved white leather chairs are spunky seating in a living room by designer Perry Walter. There's a play of pattern and vibrant hues of turquoise, marine blue, palm green and accents of tangerine. The pouf is made of white Moroccan leather.
The living room makeover includes a more modern slate tile for the fireplace and a cedar-beam mantle with TV mounted above. A comfy overstuffed sectional in pale blue and woven jute rug help bring beachy accents to the casually modern space.
Light and Bright Guest House Living Room With Turquoise Accents
Natural light illuminates this guest house living room with a gray sectional sofa and turquoise accents, like the throw pillows and table lamps. Black metal frames the windows, while a blue area rug sits atop the hardwood floors.
A terra-cotta-color wall brings in warmth year-round. “The tone shifts over the course of the day, like a sunset,” says Katie. The oversize art from Four Hands Art Studio makes it even more glorious. For seating, the dated brown sectional that dominated the space got replaced with a chic blue wool-blend sofa by American Leather, a curvy armchair by Taylor King, and two leather slingback chairs from Wisteria. Friends at the couple’s giant potluck dinners spill into here, so the large coffee table by Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture comes in handy. The rug is by Jaipur Living.
As seen on Beach Flip, contestants Martha and Alex installed new wood beams in the ceiling to separate the living room from the dining area and added all new furniture, curtains and decor at the renovated Comfort Breeze condo.
“Our fireplace was painted white when we moved in, and we figured that was the only option,” says Katie. Redoing it, hearth to mantel, in the same terra-cotta shade as the accent wall opposite it pulls the room together. Cranking up the cozy: custom-size natural woven window shades by Graber and creamy white paint (Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore) on the other walls.
