In this open concept living room, designers planned a concrete fireplace for a hint of industrial edge. The rest of the furnishings are simple and coastal chic: shiplap paneling, warm woods and natural fibers.
To give a family in Santa Monica, California, the multipurpose guest house/screening lounge they’d dreamed of, the design team at Spazio LA turned to an unexpected place: the four-car garage. "We converted half of the space while leaving the other half as a two-car garage," said the designers. "The space now includes a full screening room, a bar-kitchenette, a full bathroom and a Murphy bed for overnight guests."
When they feel like having a quiet night in, the owners can retreat to the den. Here, reclaimed wood ceilings, a stone fireplace and stacks of firewood set quite the cozy tone, while a plush sectional, two spotted armchairs and another set of chairs give everyone room to curl up.
A neutral palette creates a sophisticated, timeless appeal in this transitional living room. Comfortable armchairs pair with a sofa to create a relaxing spot to converse or watch TV. Classic trim and marble surround the fireplace for a warm focal point.
Not an inch of space goes to waste in this condo! With a little creativity and some shelving, the designers transformed a blank wall into a display for the couple's favorite photos and keepsakes. Thanks to the coral backdrop, the shelves really stand out.
The homeowners wanted a multi-functional space that can be used for relaxing and entertaining. Large sliding doors open the living room up to the pavilion for a true indoor/outdoor element. An intimate exterior seating arrangement creates a cozy atmosphere to enjoy the outdoor fireplace. Inside, the veneered media wall offers display shelving while embracing and complementing the existing architecture.
Josh took this Design Star challenge head on when he created this gray and metallic bold living room mockup. A pop of color comes in the two shiny modern red chairs, and plenty of personality comes through in the accents, including shiny Fido.
This living room evokes a romantic, feminine quality with flowing draperies that pool on the ground, curved furniture, a weathered fireplace mantel and gold accents. A creamy white color palette adds to the softness and elegance of the space.
Designer Sarah Stacey adds an unexpected touch to this contemporary, bohemian living room by hanging a multicolored rug on the wall. The piece makes an easy focal point to the room and accents the simple blue sofa.
