Angular Ceiling Planes Add Interest to Living Room
Though seemingly simple, the interior is actually full of drama thanks to the angular ceiling planes above. Meanwhile, a soft gray sectional and patterned pillows ensure the living room area is nice and comfortable.
Upstairs Living Area: Historic Prairie House in Riverside, Ill.
Upstairs, an open, second floor living room includes both craftsman-style furnishings and traditional leather sofas for optimal seating. The unique, wood-trimmed ceiling adds stunning interest and texture to the room.
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow lots of natural light to pour into this elegant cream-colored living room. White ceiling beams add architectural interest and emphasize the room’s height. Neutral furnishings, a traditional rug, full-length gold drapes and the baby-grand piano add to the room’s sophisticated, timeless look. Design by Kristi Nelson.
White Transitional Living Room With Vaulted Ceiling
Exposed wood beams against a vaulted ceiling add architectural interest to this white transitional living room. A built-in bookcase serves as a statement piece and focal point as well as a place to display family knickknacks.
White wash wood support beams and a few colorful accessories add warmth and interest to this minimalist midcentury living room/dining room combo. Warm wood floors, ceiling and walls only enhance the natural light from multiple windows.
Wall-to-wall windows showcase a stunning view of the Hawaii coast from every part of this great room. A bright blue area rug and modern, white leather sectional define the living area. The textured wooden ceiling treatment and contemporary drop ceiling add dimension and interest.

White, Traditional Kitchen with Textured Tile Backsplash
Textured tile, furniture-style cabinetry and a coffered ceiling team up to add dimension and interest to this traditional, oceanside kitchen. The room's open concept gives it a sweeping view over the dining room, living area, sunroom and broad back deck. Hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while an overall white palette gives it a casual and calm feel. A contrasting stain on the island was chosen to customize the space, ground the kitchen and add to its architectural interest.
A comfy sofa and fun hanging egg chair offer plenty of seating in this spacious living room as well as prime angles to view the wall-mounted TV over the fireplace. Exposed beams hug the ceiling, adding character and architectural interest.
Woods and light stone finishes create dynamic contrast in this great room with soaring proportions. A stone fireplace extends to the cathedral-height ceiling, adding drama and tying in with a stone surround that connects the living room and kitchen. A dark-stained lintel above the opening adds architectural interest and structural stability.
Elegant detailing adds a subtle dose of texture and interest to this fabulous black and white living room. A high ceiling and a grand chandelier show off the grand allure of the space, while a restored railing ties the entire look together.
Transitional Dining and Living Room with Coffered Ceilings and Rich Accents
This cozy dining area is physically separated from the living room but is still visually open. The round dining table lends a casual vibe to the traditional furnishings while the white coffered ceiling, built-in cabinetry and fireplace mantel add tons of architectural interest.
