The homeowners of this light-filled, historic home in northwest DC wanted to infuse color and character into the main living spaces. In the living room, turquoise velvet chairs and bright accent pillows do just that.
A living room with navy blue walls is complemented by four modern-style blue chairs, which are positioned around three different-sized round white tables, giving a contemporary feel to the space. A flatscreen television sits above a simple built-in fireplace to make this room perfect for entertaining.
This living room starts with basic beige walls, then layers in lots of visual interest via bright, white moldings and patterned curtains in blue and green. Accessories bring the colors out into the room: blue furry pillows, green glass table lamps.
This elegant transitional living room includes neutral tones with bursts of blue. Although the space has limited square footage, it extends upward two stories. It features a neutral sectional sofa, blue tuxedo armchairs, a mirrored media armoir and blue-and-white chinoiserie curtains.
The peaceful mood in this transitional living room is created with coastal-inspired blues and grays, lots of natural light and a simple, open feel. Area rugs help mark out different conversational groupings in the large floor plan.
The design challenge in this living room was to keep it dressy for formal entertaining and also coordinate it with the adjacent and more casual outdoor patio. The solution: Use the blue and grey color scheme in both areas for a comfortable indoor/outdoor flow.
The designer of this mountain home wanted the living room to feel cozy and be a modern twist on a rustic cabin look. Teal chairs by Joybird bring in an energetic pop of color that's carried through the space via matching accessories. A six-arm LED chandelier makes a modern lighting statement overhead.

The sun and sky were the inspiration for the yellow and navy blue color palette designers used throughout this home. The pale oak floors and exposed beams pair well with the rich colors. And huge glass doors let in lots of light.
