Contemporary Living Room for Cycling Enthusiast
To highlight this homeowner's love of cycling, the corner of living room features a Tour de France poster and hanging rack for the bicycle. A Barcelona chair and ottoman is a simple, comfortable place to relax.
Natural elements, like a petrified wood coffee table, bowl and side table, mix with contemporary details, like abstract art and simple furniture, in this open concept living room. A turquoise blue accent wall makes a bold statement.
A stone-topped table doesn’t have to always be a splurge purchase. Atlanta designer Michael Habachy says you can make your own. Take an existing table or purchase a cheap table, then add a remnant (a leftover piece of marble, granite or another type of stone that’s cheaper than a slab) to the top. “It’s a great way to take something inexpensive and make it look super luxe,” he says.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, the completed renovation includes this great room, adjacent to both the kitchen and new main living room, incorporating a dining area and new French doors that open onto an outdoor living space.
The bright white walls in this contemporary living room keep the room feeling light and open despite the use of dark wood in the furniture. A stone fireplace adds a pretty textural element to the space.
