Contemporary Neutral Living Room with Open Metal Staircase
The space adjacent to the kitchen, which had been the back exterior of the house, is opened up to make room for a dramatic staircase, with custom open-metal railing, leading to the upstairs of the new addition.
A few simple architectural details help divide up this open concept living area into separate regions. A column sets the kitchen off from the living room. A partition wall and sconce create a cozy reading nook.
The open floor plan combines the kitchen, dining room and living areas. Large windows allow natural light to pour into the space, while light-toned woods, gray upholstery and stainless steel finishes combine for a sleek, contemporary style.
For a family who loves to watch TV, the television goes front and center in the living room. The designer used it as a jumping off point for the rest of the room, refining the tv's boxy look with gray textured wallpaper and hourglass-shaped sconces and echoing the black in other accents.
Contemporary Blue and White Open-Concept Living Room
The family room and kitchen are open concept and family friendly in this home, so the cook is never eliminated from activities. Three living room windows lead to the patio and backyard, giving anyone at the kitchen island a clear view outside.
Large artwork makes a bold statement in the contemporary black-and-white living room. A gray shag rug grounds the space, bringing in texture, while a combination of sleek gray, white and black furniture make for a cozy seating area. Chunky wood coffee tables add warmth to the space.
Open, Contemporary Living Room With White Sectional & Large Windows
Natural materials and a limited color palette create an understated and comfortable design in this contemporary living space. The spacious, open floor plan is kept cohesive with hardwood flooring and white walls throughout. A white sectional is decorated with green throw pillows, and pink orchids bring another pop of color and a touch of the outdoors.
