Traditional Living Room in Chocolate Brown and Ruby Red
In a living room with a white backdrop, chocolate brown furnishings and red accessories can make a strong statement. Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth pairs red and brown together as complementary shades. The warm tones in each color can be used to create a cozy living room environment.
Cherry Highlights in Wood Brought to Life by Red Accents
The bold red color of the items in this space pop off the white walls. This vivd color also complements the cherry hues in the antique dressers in the back of the space, tying all the elements together.
A large wall mirror with a striking black frame makes this cozy living room look larger. A brick accent wall adds character to the space, which is furnished with neutral, contemporary-style sofas and two small green trunks for coffee tables.
This small space living room is a couple of steps down from the kitchen. The sunken family room visually expands the space.The wall art and tall potted plants make the room look proportional, while a colorful mix of patterns in the upholstery and throw pillows provide balance to the small space.
A bright red accent wall draws you in as you walk into this sleek black and white space. The fireplace has a streamlined look using black granite embedded with stainless steel strips. Black cracked glass in the fireplace box and light hardwood floors add texture to the room's design.
An excellent way to keep a deep, rich look without sacrificing light is to choose saturated shades of red then tone them down with an organic texture and a light accent color. Here, the cranberry grass-cloth walls infuse the room with much-needed color, keeping it bright with an all-natural appeal. Alternatively, the cool, blue-gray accents add contrast.
This living room features a blend of traditional decor with modern touches, including the multicolored artwork hanging above the sofa. Two U-back armchairs are positioned in front of the fireplace, while orange striped curtains and a red velvet ottoman add pops of color.
Set a seating area apart by framing it within a custom cornice piece and drapes, like this example from HGTV's Great Rooms. A painting hung on top of the drapes adds visual richness and depth to the eclectic space, while white slipper chairs help to define the living room from the adjacent dining room.
Eclectic Salon Features French and Italian Antiques
In this rust-colored salon, French and Italian antiques are paired with iconic pieces by Billy Baldwin and Warren Platner. Custom furnishings, including a quartet of 7-foot mirrored screens, add elegance and visual interest to the space.
Piano With Red Chair in Multicolored Traditional Living Room
Rich fabrics make a striking juxtaposition with the smooth sheen of the black baby grand piano in this traditional living room. A red and gold brocade chair sits at the ready for the next musician, and on the wall hangs a tapestry.
Before, this small living space lacked color and charm. The addition of all-new furniture injects character and functionality, while a textured wall covering adds new life to the living room's walls, ceiling and fireplace. To hide TV cords, an alcove is made from lumber and planks of paint-grade pine. Keeping the wires concealed inside the alcove allows for a seamless and sophisticated look.
The walls in this living room are painted red and gold, with furniture along each wall complementing both colors. Along the gold wall is a red-orange sofa, while the red wall is home to a large framed portrait of two girls.
Entertain in style with this coastal living room, complete with bright blue chairs, a red wraparound sofa, and a white and blue coffee table on a striped rug. Prepare cocktails from your mahogany bar off to the right, or grab a snack from the kitchen, boasting a marble counter top and plenty of seating.
