This blue and white contemporary living room features coastal accents like the seashells sitting on the fireplace mantel. A portrait of waves crashing on the shore sits above the mantel as well. Pops of color are added with blue accents like a blanket and throw pillows.
A navy blue accent wall behind the fireplace makes this living room feel both intimate and dramatic. The strong color is carried out into the space via artwork and other accessories. And despite the furnishings' high-end look, fabrics and rugs are surprisingly kid friendly.
Brick steps lead to the lower lawn, where the landscape architects created an outdoor living room complete with a bar, barbeque, two armchairs and fire pit. From here, the owners can sit back, relax and watch the sun set over the Pacific.
Dark blue walls add rich elegance to this contemporary living room, providing the perfect backdrop for the white sofa, patterned accent pillows and art collection. A gray and white graphic rug adds another fun layer of pattern.
In this open concept living area, the white rug and sectional serve as a muted backdrop for splashes of color throughout the space. Blues, pale greens, even a hint of pink from the flower arrangement on the table wake up the room.
This living room feels cool and serene, from the pale watery blue walls to the plush white sofa and capiz shell lighting. Glass and metal tables and metallic candle holders add to the cool color scheme.
On the far wall of the main living area, glass doors let the outdoors become a vital part of the interior's look. Most of the furniture is neutral or white, which allows for lots of layering of compelling textures and vibrant accents.
Many people think modular seating arrangements won’t work in a small space but they can actually take up less room than a sofa and loveseat and provide a place for two people to stretch out comfortably.
The walls, floors and windows in this living room are minimalist and clean. Low, streamlined furniture adds to the contemporary feel, while a few select pieces, like the chair and pillows, bring in bold pops of color.
