The modern design features classic lines, soft seating and inviting artwork, avoiding anything too stark or uncomfortable. A color palette of crème, with touches of blue, terra cotta, silvers and grays, add to the home’s friendly atmosphere, creating a strong but comfortable look.
Though the first floor of this home isn’t an open plan, the living room and dining room are close enough to each other to require a few connections in their design plan. The stripes on the rug, the polka dots on the table runner and even the triangle patterns on the wall in the dining room all have correlatives in the living room. And where there is the biggest difference - the complete lack of art in the dining room - all of the colors on the wall have been taken from the living room gallery wall, creating some beautiful visual connections.
A pair of low consoles with doors are positioned on either side of a stone fireplace, which has a vase, potted plant, and two framed paintings on a floating mantel. On one console is a television; on the other console is a mirror, table lamp and statue.
A streamlined wood fireplace with flat screen TV serves as the focal point for the sitting area. A glass coffee table allows the tropical blue hues throughout the space to stand out against the natural wood grain of the fireplace and hearth.
To highlight this homeowner's love of cycling, the corner of living room features a Tour de France poster and hanging rack for the bicycle. A Barcelona chair and ottoman is a simple, comfortable place to relax.
The open layout created an inviting and spacious environment for a large living room and dining room. The overall color palette was kept neutral, emphasizing various tones including taupe, stone, beige and ivory. These colors were used on accent items including the silk wall covering, area rug and pillows.
Sliding Glass Doors Create Seamless Transition to Balcony

Contemporary Living Room With Tufted Furniture, Patterned Wallpaper and Thick, White Fireplace Surround
A modern patterned wallpaper print was installed to draw attention to the fireplace, as seen on HGTV Fixer Upper. The fireplace and mantel were entirely reworked and surrounded with the bold, contrasty wallpaper to create an accent wall that ties in visually with the trim, door and furnishings. Cozy neutral furniture with a tufted finish is brightened with yellow throw pillows.
Low horizontal furnishings not only create clean lines in this contemporary living room, they guarantee unobstructed city views out the French doors. The room's neutral palette gets a color infusion thanks to the large plant in the corner and some teal pillows on the couch.
This stylish living room features a pair of neutral sofas with teal throw pillows. A rainfall chandelier hangs above, while floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to illuminate the space. High gloss light hardwood floors and a glass console table add contemporary finishing touches.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in this contemporary and inviting living room lets in lots of natural light and a view to the outdoor terrace. Hardwood floors in a herringbone pattern compliment the blue and white patterned rug with a pop of color on the sofa pillows in pink.
