Contemporary Neutral Living Room with Gray Built-in Bookshelves
The original built-in bookcases flanking the fireplace were retained, echoing the arched detail found in the doors and entryways. The bookcases and trim are painted in ash gray, providing soft contrast with the newly painted white walls.
Instead of a space with a traditional kitchen island, designers opted to split the feature and, instead, had two islands installed in the kitchen. This configuration gives the homeowners more counter space, more storage and drastically increases the function and flow of the kitchen.
To make the room feel even more warm and welcoming, designer Barbara Vail layered the space with her client's vast book collection. With their spines arranged by color and size, the novels easily enliven the white walls.
A closer look at the living room corner reveals the designer's attention to scale and detail, with two copper frames and a tall plant adding height to the space. Below, mixed-patterned pillows pair well together thanks to their complementary colors.
Opposite the sofa, two sapphire blue armchairs denote a more formal sitting area for entertaining guests. When paired with a copper side table and high-gloss pillows, the gems make an especially chic statement.
A sleek white dining table is surrounded by comfortable armchairs and a low gray bench. Palm branches add a little life to the space, while an abstract glossy white sculpture adds texture and definition above the table.
A southwestern fireplace is a stunning focal point in this contemporary, white living room. Bright blue club chairs surround a snakeskin ottoman, making a chic and comfortable sitting area in front of the fireplace. A contemporary bubble-like chandelier
