Bright Green Living Room With Royal Blue Accents & Sky Blue Sofa
Color galore! The blues of the sky and greens of grass and plants make this eclectic living room come alive. Vibrant royal-and-white modern art mirrors the boldly printed rug. The comfy sofa is chock-full of multi-color, patterned pillows that can change with the seasons or on a whim. Personal effects -- scattered throughout the space -- provide a window into the owners' lives, and a large coffee table provides an ample area for knick-knacks and plants alike.
This living room boasts deep blue walls and crisp white molding. The furniture is arranged to invite conversation, and everything is tied together with a beautiful brown leather ottoman atop a dramatic blue and white patterned rug.
This open concept coastal living and dining space uses pops of blue to liven up the crisp, white walls. A neutral, nature-inspired light fixture centers the space with calming grey furniture and blue patterned pillows, art, and an area rug in the room.
Kristen was able to give her modest 10-by-12-foot living room a high-energy, sophisticated look by sticking with flea markets for staple pieces, then updating them with color. The walls were painted a dark blue tone from Benjamin Moore called Black Horizon. "I love using dark colors to create backdrops for my pieces," she says. "The canary yellow bamboo chair and the pair of turquoise end tables really pop against the blue. Plus, the navy blue makes my abstract art look even better!"
Rustic furniture and accessories add texture to this bright, feminine living room in shades of soft blue, gray and white. Especially stunning is the rustic reclaimed wood coffee table that adds a fun touch to this otherwise traditional space.
“What I love about the living room is we have a neutral sofa and deep blue chairs so I could play with the color palette by layering different blues in,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “But to make the blue not too masculine we brought in pops of really pale pink and it makes the whole space totally grounded.”
The first room enters from the grand foyer. The living room is designed for social gatherings whether it’s a weekly book club, a knitting circle or a wine tasting. But far from formal, the space – thanks to a soothing color palette and whimsical, unexpected touches – invites all those who enter to grab a seat, kick off their shoes and relax.
As seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Flipping the Block, Amanda Marks and Curtis Goldin had only $80 left to renovate their living room for the sixth challenge. Their big design decision was to take out the popcorn ceiling and expose the wooden subfloor of the second floor; the rest of the room was designed around that idea, with rustic pieces from Joss & Main, and under-stair storage and shelves made by Curtis.
