Crisp, clean white furniture combines with neutral walls and floor-to-ceiling windows for a bright, breezy atmosphere in this living room. Contemporary paintings add vibrant color, and a waterfront view provides a stunning backdrop.
Stenciled daisies adorn the green walls to coordinate with this room's other floral accents and add an artistic touch. A pink-and-white checked rug anchors the space and enforces the room's girly color palette.
The clean white design of this reading nook creates a calm place to sit and relax. A graphic rug breaks up the stark coloring. A retro-inspired chair with a matching ottoman is decorated with a Fornasetti pillow, and a panel of abstract art adds yellow to the design for a pop of bright color.
A modern white chair and coordinating white desk are tucked in the corner of this room, creating a stylish workspace for one. A furry rug adds coziness underfoot, and French doors provide ample natural light.
Black-and-white photos of cityscapes paired with a bold red wall color wall give this transitional living room an air of sophistication. A large white sectional and glass coffee table add refreshing contrast to the vibrant wall and curtain color.

A white Buddha statue, among other Asian accents used throughout the space, introduces a Zen mood to this porch sitting area. Beautiful white furniture and sheer white curtains look even brighter against the natural background and neutral floor. Throw pillows add pops of accent color in red, purple and pink, while the pair of metallic tables adds a touch of glam to the design.
If you can't afford a new farmhouse-style table, the same look can be achieved by mixing salvaged pieces to create your own table. Find an old tabletop, then add old or new spindle legs. If you paint the table and other outdoor furniture all white, it creates a modern and sleek look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.
Symmetry is key in this transitional living room. Centered by a traditional coffee table, the paired white sofas and armchairs naturally balance each other and the wood flooring. Against the back wall, a wooden bookcase and door anchor the fireplace on either side, while the French doors complement the room's arches.
Here's inspiration to make the most of an oddly shaped space. Pale yellow is used on the walls to brighten up the room, while a white ceiling helps the area seem taller and loftier. Ruffled curtains create a special hideaway spot to cuddle up and read a book in the built-in window seat.
