Neutral Modern Living Room Boasts Panoramic Views
Floor to ceiling windows surround this sleek, urban living room offering panoramic views of the city. Muted, neutral tones combine with clean, sharp lines to create a sophisticated space that is a trademark of modern design.
On the other side of the island, a large area rug defines the living room. By keeping the furniture low and limiting the color palette to neutrals, the design team ensured that all eyes would be on the Puget Sound.
Everything about this Malibu, California, living room is designed to highlight the home's focal point: the view. A wall of glass provides a sweeping look at the ocean beyond, while walls and furnishings are neutral so as not to distract. In the beachside sitting room, Mid-Century Modern chairs rest atop a cream shag rug. Even the wine cellar is glass, keeping the entire space airy, open and light-filled.
The light, open design of this living room lets the home's outdoor space be an essential part of the ambiance. A fireplace is the room's anchor with large sliding doors opening out on either side to the patio.
Because this living room features a predominantly neutral palette, the shape of the furniture and the textures are more important. A round end table is a nice counterpoint to the boxy sofas and the armchairs offer up crisp angles and lines.

This modern kitchen is awash in gray, white and glass, forming a neutral backdrop that allows the aqua ocean view to provide the room's pop of color. A waterfall countertop is sleek and modern, and gray clean-lined cabinetry offers ample storage. Walls of glass provide panoramic views.
