In this living room, a casual backdrop of white paneling contrasts imaginatively with designer Leanne Ford's use of a more formal tufted leather sofa and Oriental rug, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
Industrial-rustic meets modern in this open, airy living room, which is characterized by clean lines and crisp finishes. Large clerestory windows wrap the space, ushering in loads of natural light. Suspended fixtures light the two-story living area, adding warmth as well as a functional solution for the high ceilings. The open concept space has an easy flow for entertaining.
Crystal obelisks crown both ends of the mantel in the wood-paneled living room designed by Stan Topol for the 2017 Southeastern Showhouse in Atlanta. The room includes a sectional sofa, a French reproduction chest as a coffee table and an abstract canvas.
Throughout the home's original living room and kitchen, heavy maple cabinetry with thick, floating crown moldings to match made the spaces feel old and outdated to the family, so designers modernized the spaces, giving both rooms a coat of white paint. Then, they gave the original cabinets a facelift, painting the lower kitchen cabinets black for contrast and giving the other cabinets a new white sheen. The cabinets were then rearranged to meet the design vision that created these beautiful, inviting, updated living space.
This pretty living room gives off a feeling of tailored sophistication, though multiple armchairs and a cushy sofa make it plenty comfortable too. A round black coffee table is a crisp finishing touch.
Completely unexpected yet totally gorgeous in its design, this living room is awe-inspiring. Anchoring a section of the room is a large contemporary painting in blues and greens that draws the eye not only to its effect but also to the textures, colors and styles that surround it.
Paul plays with texture and shape in the living room, adding to its fanciful aesthetic. The furnishings are a mix of modern classics, including Eames seating, an Arne Jacobson Swan Sofa, and an Arco Floor Lamp. Color and texture are on display through art. The yellow flowers in the canvas over the sofa are three-dimensional and roughly textured, while a painted chair injects a rainbow of colors into the room.
The living room has spectacular views of the waterways. The windows extend to the ceiling as a way to increase the airy feeling of the space and to take in as much daylight and view as possible. The low-slung furnishings and cool colors enhance this effect.
