A beautiful wood entertainment center fills the back wall of this living room, providing plenty of storage and muting the television's presence in the space. The warm brown of the wood is picked up again in the coffee and console tables and in the relaxed sectional.
If the brightest white is not desirable or appropriate to your particular project, tone it down a few notches. This modern, warm brown billiards and bar area creates a cozy space for family and friends.
A detailed mantel, a coffered ceiling and arched doorways lend sophistication and elegance to this traditional living room. Warm neutrals make for an inviting atmosphere, and comfortable seating encourages guests to make themselves at home.
Sweeping ceilings are grounded by the stacked stone fireplace and exposed wood beams in this rustic, inviting living space. A pair of traditional wingback chairs add a burst of orange to the room, while a buttery yellow ottoman centers the space.
To add life to the living room, the area rug was replaced with colorful carpet squares that also added pattern to the space. The brown pillows were swapped for colorful prints picked up on the cheap from a show house sample sale. To help accommodate up to three guests comfortably, the tiny coffee table was placed into the storage space to make room for a trio of modern nesting tables. For a wallpapered look, an 8-foot-by-4-foot sheet of 3/4-inch foam board was covered with wallpaper and fastened to the wall using double-sided tape.
Warms woods are used on the ceiling and to create chic built-ins that provide storage for the homeowners' favorite books and artwork. Gray carpet with a subtle graphic design provides a neutral backdrop for the brightly colored furniture.

Shades of dark and light brown fill this beautiful Prairie-style living room with warmth and sophistication. The coziness of the space is a striking contrast with the wide-open, sweeping views outside the window.
