Globally Inspired Living Room With Built-In Bookshelves
This family room features a diverse mix of fabrics, patterns and materials to create a globally-inspired, eclectic space. The deep midnight blue accent color on the ikat drapery is carried over to the hand-painted wooden plaques above the fireplace. The whole look is grounded with a large oriental rug and a classic-lined sofa. Accent furniture, including a unique hammered bronze metal coffee table, modern orange chair and classic wing-back chair complete the look.

Sleek furniture combines neutral cushions with striped pillows to create a comfortable, inviting seating area in this beach-inspired living room. Large floor-to-ceiling windows provide stunning views of the surrounding Santa Barbara, Calif. Built-in bookshelves flank the contemporary fireplace and inset flatscreen TV.
The goal was to give the home a worldly and globally inspired feel so new custom designs, textural fabrics and finishes were incorporated along with Asian and African artifacts and antiques. Habachy Designs imagined the occupants of this home as well-traveled, and the objects in the home were artifacts and cherished tokens of their trips around the world.
The area rug, as well as the lounge chairs, are custom pieces designed by Habachy Designs. The great room was an expansive, extended oval, and it posed a challenge as to how to divide the room into separate living spaces. In order to emphasize the curvature of the architecture, Habachy Designs mimicked the shape in the tone-on-tone rug. This allowed for a focal area and living space to be created that would be harmonious with the entirety of the great room.
