Warm Living Room With Organic Materials
Soft neutrals, woven shades and plenty of natural light create a stunning, relaxing retreat in this serene living area. A large striped area rig adds warmth to the space, while the use of organic materials brings a casual aspect to the space.
The key to making rooms feel well curated and balanced is the proper mix of organic materials. Nearly every element in this room is made from all-natural materials, including the driftwood floor lamps, Belgian-linen upholstery, cotton draperies, rustic wooden nesting tables and aged-brass hardware.
Shades of blue and green bring cool, earth tones to this neutral living space. A potted tree adds a life to the contemporary sitting area, which pairs sleek white furniture with a tufted black ottoman and streamlined floor lamps.
Open-Concept Living Space with Modern Lines, Organic Materials
Glass walls fully retract to open the living and dining spaces of this modern home to its natural outdoor setting. The hillside views are rugged and natural, and organic interior elements help connect the indoor and outdoor vistas. Clean lined, modern furniture fits with the clean, geometric planes of the architecture. Meanwhile, the open-concept plan keeps the sight lines open and clear.
In the living room, designers wanted to create a timeless, intimate space for the homeowners, so they started with a patterned rug and chose pieces of furniture that had some of the same colors. Then, they implemented a mix of materials such as glass, wood, metal and textiles to make the space eclectic, yet soft and warm, creating a grand room that is still very homey, welcoming and comfortable.
This living room has warm yellow walls, built-in shelving, a cozy window seat with soft red fabric and a stone fireplace with wooden mantle. Wooden end tables are placed between the yellow furniture, arranged around a glass coffee table complete with candles.
Designers had a warm, eclectic feel in mind when shopping for items to go in the home's living room. They started with white walls, then they mixed modern and traditional furniture and patterns, then they added details, such as pillows and artwork, to give the space plenty of color.
Architectural details, from the coved ceiling to the arched windows, make a dramatic impact in this living room's design. Centered on the fireplace, the warm, cozy seating area combines a classic sofa and leather armchair with contemporary black-and-white chairs.
As seen on Vacation House for Free, the neutral colors and patterns Matt used in this lakefront home in Oakland, Maine makes the space more inviting. The natural elements such as the burlap lamp shade and wood end table help keep the place chic and warm.
Anchored in white, this living room is the perfect clean, contemporary space for these homeowners and their family. The living room is instantly warmed by the natural light let in by the trio of large windows to the right of the space, and exposed beams add further warmth and contrast, along with a bit of dimension to the elegant, contemporary space.
An oversized upholstered ottoman packs a powerful design punch in this kid-friendly living room. The soft performance fabric coordinates with the tonal blue on the walls, art, and other textiles in the space. The ottoman is versatile for entertaining, relaxation or for the kiddos to jump and play on.
Built-in bookshelves provide much-needed storage for this family of readers. A sisal area rug adds warmth underfoot and defines the seating area, which pairs a leather sofa and chair with a pale wood coffee table.
