Mantel Simply Accessorized with Candles in Hurricane Glasses
Two white pillar candles in matching hurricane glasses and other well-chosen accessories help dress up the mantel in this transitional living room from designer Elizabeth P. Clarke. Tips from the designer: The fireplace is one of the most striking features in a room and should be a focal point. The mantel is a great place to accessorize. Small groupings of artwork can be added above the mantel for some punch, and smaller accessories on the mantel help tie in the fireplace with the art. Lighting and candles are another fabulous way to create visual focal points.
Snazzy Eclectic Living Room With Folding Coffee Table
A wooden coffee table includes a folding element that opens to create a larger table and store a vintage suitcase underneath, adding to the global feel of the living room. Bright, patterned throw pillows add a pop of color to the black chenille sofa, while a round mirror is positioned on the exposed brick wall.
A vintage trunk is perfect for hiding away clutter, while a pair of cacti are easy-to-maintain houseplants. Gray linen curtains dress the windows, and gold sconces bring a contemporary note to the living room.
Neutral Eclectic Living Room with Black, White, and Cream Accents
A neutral palette is enhanced by accents in black and cream. Warm colors of rust and gold add visual interest and color to the space, while an elegant area rug with French writing provides a focal point. A built in entertainment center on the far wall anchors the space and provides ample display room for colorful accessories and books.
Vintage finds combine with contemporary accents for a room that's modern yet lived in. Distressed leather chairs pair with fluffy faux fur throws and graphic-patterned pillows for a mix of old and new. Gray linen curtains filter light from the windows, while a gold bar cart adds a touch of glam to the space.
Clean modern forms are the defining element in this room, with a sleek sectional and Milo Baughman-inspired chairs combined with minimalist white cabinetry. The brightly colored Ikat-patterned rug was the inspiration for the palette which includes pink, yellow and blue. The focal fireplace wall has a gray-and-white faux finish and a large round nickel-framed mirror over the mantel.
A soft neutral color palette is highlighted by warm textures, including the flokati area rug, gray velvet sofa and linen curtains. Brass accents bring metallic gleam to the space, which also features classic artwork.
