A mix of materials—brick fireplace, wood floors, leather armchairs and coffee table—add texture and visual dimension to this contemporary living room. Vases with tall ornamental grasses placed along the mantel pull the eye upward.
White walls serve as the perfect nondescript backdrop for rough-hewn wood accents and an eclectic array of global decor. Beach grass fills a glass cylindrical vase, adding yet another organic, sculptural element to the space.
This living room blends transitional and French country styles to create a cozy look. An overstuffed sofa, a hallmark of transitional design, faces a gold bamboo-inspired coffee table. The timeworn clock and striped pillows are a nod to French country living.
An overstuffed sofa and casual accessories give this narrow living room an inviting charm while streamlined tables and up-high storage add depth and flow to the neutral space. Twin windows on the far wall make the contemporary-style room feel very open.
