Whether you want to cozy up and read a book by the fireplace or play a game with family and friends, this cozy living room offers the best of both worlds. A pair of club chairs sit fireside around the game table, while built-in bookshelves behind offer a wide selection of books to choose from.
The outdoor landscape is incorporated in this living area with carefully chosen natural elements, like house plants and an elegant lampshade pattern. Neutral sofas anchor the sitting area and green and white striped curtains frame a stunning view from the adjacent balcony.
Clean white walls and plenty of natural light from the sliding glass doors create a bright, breezy feel in this open concept home. The living area flows seamlessly into the adjacent dining area, making entertaining a cinch.
To bring the outdoors into this living room, the designer chose a soft green for the wall color and added an accent wall with a tree pattern. The vertical tree trunks have the added visual benefit of making the ceiling feel higher.
The open floor plan is perfect for families and entertaining. Traditional white cabinets pair with a gray kitchen island, which mimics the color scheme in the living room furniture. The cozy breakfast area features a round table with pretty blue chairs.
In addition to the two sofas and chairs, this living room comes with two large brown leather ottomans. Because the leather is so durable, the owners can use these pieces as stools or as extra seating for visitors without worry of wear and tear.
This luxurious formal living room features porcelain tile fireplace and exquisite baby blue built-ins. This room was designed to be a soothing and relaxing space perfect to curl up with a good book and designer Traci Connell did just that.
This model home’s fireplace is wrapped floor to ceiling in expensive marble. The same clean look can easily be achieved with an inexpensive plank-sized porcelain tile, says Atlanta interior designer Michael C. Morris with Monte Hewett Homes.
The designer of this transitional California family room reconfigured the windows and installed a large picture window in a formerly solid exterior wall. Now the homeowners have an enchanting view of their garden and crabapple tree from the family room and the adjoining kitchen.
Below the newly painted ceiling, a comfy sectional anchors the family room alongside an oversized ottoman. Durable upholstery and a soft area rug withstand the general wear and tear of a pet-friendly home.
Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s color of the year, designer Jeff Schlarb chose a rich wine color as a theme for the Pent Room at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 and worked it in to every detail of the space, from the walls, to the nailhead trim on the tailored sofa. This sitting area allows for private conversation removed from the activity of the pool table and bar.
