Since this Seattle home has such an expansive floor plan, the owners were able to construct a special guest suite, complete with a sitting area and dining space. Here, visitors will find a large brown leather sectional, coffee table, two ottomans and a colorful artwork.
Formerly a home office, this small space is better suited for a reading lounge or meditation room. The walls have received a fresh coat of gray paint. Soothing art, furniture and accessories were brought in to create a relaxing atmosphere.
A custom painting by Thomas Swanston serves as the focal point of this nature-inspired living room. Below, a charming fireplace is backed with brick set in a herringbone pattern. An upholstered bench wraps all the way around the fireplace, providing fireside seating.
When they're expecting guests, the homeowners can pull out two patterned ottomans to create extra seating in the living room. With their black-and-white striped cushions, these bring out the bold black hue of the fireplace surround.
Light from the bay window captures the brights and classy design in this living room. Linen curtains blend beautifully with the neutral sofa, chaise and arm chairs. Polished surfaces and metallic details offer a fitting reflective quality. Yellow patterned throw pillows add a touch of color.
Windows that stretch to the ceiling make this transitional living room feel grand yet inviting. A plush purple velvet chair with a matching ottoman rests by the fireplace, while a beige sofa sits adjacent to a pair of blue chairs. A built-in bookshelf displays colorful accessories and books for the avid reader.
Like the living room, this breakfast nook comes with a big bay window that overlooks Seattle's Elliot Bay and the Space Needle. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets in this space and the eat-in kitchen ensure that the owners have plenty of storage for their plates, bowls and various appliances.
A glamorous white and gold centerpiece is key to dressing up this formal dining room for Christmas. Blue velvet gourds give the design a touch of color and echo the hues of the painting over the fireplace.
Designer Robin LaMonte used more ornaments and even place settings to carry those beautiful blue and cream hues into the dining room. Here, the soft shades help balance the dark wood of the dining table and chairs, keeping the space light and airy.
Soaring ceilings make the open concept dining area and kitchen feel cloud light. For a little fun, designers added yellow accents in varying shades. Windows trimmed in crisp black are a place for the eye to rest.
Once the sun goes down, the living room's bay window puts on quite a show, flaunting pink skies and views of Elliot Bay and the Space Needle. Notice how the designers outfitted this space with pillows in a slight pinkish hue to subtly complement the display.
A sleek dresser that doubles as storage and a buffet area for entertaining is nestled into the arched niche in this dining room. Artwork featuring an oversized trellis pattern adds a splash of color to the space.
A dark wood French door opens into HGTV Smart Home 2018, leading visitors straight into the dining room. The neutral transitional space has smart dashes of color, including the blue upholstered chairs, houseplants and large pink area rug.
There's something so timeless about a living room with crown molding and wood floors, no? Using these classic details as a canvas, the designers then layered in a crushed velvet sofa, two suede armchairs, a glass-topped coffee table and other items that achieve a sense of "effortless elegance."
