The goal of this project was to modernize the open plan living space, but in a thoughtful way that would respect the location and also provide the client, a young single bachelor, with a functional design. The narrow living room space was one of the biggest challenges in the space planning. By creating a wall hung entertainment unit and bookcase, with a large area rug and small cocktail tables, the narrow space was visually widened.
This dark gray living room with vaulted ceilings showcases modern design, from the crushed velvet armchairs to the patterned area rug. An artistic pendant light with brass accents match the sconces above the warm gas fireplace.
Tall windows flanking the fireplace and a glass doorway that leads to a covered outdoor living area bathe this modern living room in light. A soft gray palette is punctuated by bold pops of yellow and teal. A custom wood panel above the marble fireplace turns the wall into an elegant focal point. Brass accents bring warmth to the cool space.
Modern Monochromatic Living Room With Brass Accents
Modern furnishings and brass accents give this gray living space an elegant feel. Aged brass sconces hang above the soft leather sofa and beside the wall mounted TV and media console. A modern chandelier hangs above the dark hardwood floors and patterned monochromatic area rug.
Modern Living and Dining Room With Deep Gray Walls
Combining a living room with a dining room is a great way to maximize utility in a room or home with limited space. This room feels unified thanks to the charcoal-gray walls yet gains a useful sense of separation thanks to the white area rug and neutral benches.
The textured gray walls in this modern living room mix well with the gray shag carpet separated by a long, short white shelf. The coffee table is gray stone with a diamond pattern on top. A solid purple chair and bright blue feathered wreath provide a strong pop of color against the gray.
This modern gray living space mixes oiled hardwood flooring with crisp white walls and concrete ceilings. Aged brass fixtures, from the contemporary chandelier to the sconces and side table provide elegance and warmth in the space, paired with a soft gray leather sofa and patterned area rug.
The furnishings throughout this Florida condo are a mix of ready-made and custom pieces. Here, in the living room, the designers created a black lacquer media console to house—and somewhat disguise—the tv.
This modern living room seamlessly transitions into the adjacent outdoor patio, giving the illusion of a large space. A sliding glass wall separates the living room when the outdoor patio isn't in use.
Modern Living Room with Gray, Teal, Yellow Palette
Large-scale photography brings the outdoors into this modern living room. The room is both modern and bold with punches of color that liven up the otherwise neutral space. A picture rail adds a throwback element to the space and also ties in with the paneled feature wall above the fireplace. Brass accents add warmth to the overall look.
