The play of lots of color in the living room is part of a design strategy that has color gradually grow as visitors enter the home, then move to the great room and eventually upstairs to the bold bedrooms with lots of personality.
The living room’s medium-tone prefinished engineered hardwood floor creates a warm and neutral backdrop for the space. “The best way to describe it would be greige,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “It’s kind of like a grayish beige mix.”
Part of a new addition to the back of the home that includes the master bedroom and master bath above, the lounge-worthy living room is located just two steps down from the kitchen and open dining room. This nice-sized space with tons of windows offers an ideal spot for entertaining and relaxing while enjoying outdoor views.
Two identical plush sofas in a rich and regal shade of emerald green offer comfortable seating for visiting with guests, enjoying the cozy fireplace or the enticing outdoor views. The living room is now located where a small deck previously sat off the back of the home.
What was once a catch-all for old furniture is now a jewel-toned beauty of a sitting room. The rug was the jumping off point for the rich palette and is surprisingly durable, as the room is the main path to access an enclosed porch. Designers pulled the beautiful colors out to the sectional, wallpaper, pillows and window treatments.
A curated look with modern and industrial design elements and a mix of colors creates an appealing living room that coordinates with adjacent spaces and reflects this urban home's mix of easy living and modern style.
