This light-filled living room uses soaring ceilings and clerestory windows to capture views of the adjacent garden. In turn, the owners can soak up natural light, cool breezes and greenery without even leaving their seats.
Global-inspired colorful rugs are layered on top of a woven natural fiber rug for a textured, cozy look. The contemporary white sofa is paired with a variety of patterned pillows, while a large piece of abstract art fills the wall.
Natural and stained black wood create a striking contrast on this mid-century modern buffet. A large round mirror helps to visually expand the minimalist living room, while a mix of contemporary and organic accessories decorate the space.
A cozy, built-in corner bench under the window makes better use of this space than a single chair, with its extra storage and long seat cushion to stretch out. The palm plant brings in a nice pop of green and nods to the room's beach style inspiration.
The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.
Framed watercolor art evokes the movement of waves flowing in and out, even capturing the ocean's natural hues which inspired the color palette of this home. Sand-colored linen couches add to the coastal look of this living room.
Striking angles, pops of muted color and rich hardwood floors give this stark white living room a bold personality. Even the slightest curved lines in the furniture and accessories stand out among the right angles, adding major interest.
This custom-made sofa is 13' x 13', so an average-sized coffee table would be too small. Hexagonal end tables were the clever solution; they can be arranged in any number of ways, making them flexible and oh-so-functional.

To add much-needed storage to this family room, a custom entertainment center was designed with space for toys, games and equipment. Sliding barn doors easily hide shelves away when they're not needed.
