Welcoming Contemporary Living Room With Clean White Palette
Contemporary yet comfortable furniture creates a relaxing sitting area in this Scandinavian-inspired living room. A trio of light fixtures hang from the exposed wood beams, bringing a touch of rustic charm to the space.
Blue and green accents are a colorful extension of the living area's natural palette. The colors are used in other rooms as well and pair so prettily with the shiplap paneling and white oak beams. High ceilings help the space feel huge.
A stone fireplace is accented by a rustic wood mantel and hammered gold vases. The living space opens up to a cozy bar area, complete with warm brown cabinets, barstools and cool, contemporary pendant lights.
White Transitional Living Room With Exposed Ceiling Beams
In this white transitional living room, touches like the exposed beams and sliding barn door are charmingly matched with this mountain home's rustic setting. Behind the barn door, graphic wallpaper is a fun reveal.
White Transitional Living Room With Vaulted Ceiling
Exposed wood beams against a vaulted ceiling add architectural interest to this white transitional living room. A built-in bookcase serves as a statement piece and focal point as well as a place to display family knickknacks.
Photographer Robert Petersen’s photo of an Icelandic Horse was the perfect jumping off point for inspiration. Crisp whites, muted blues and pale wood tones give the room a natural, dreamy vibe. With wood itself a high-priced commodity in Iceland, Brian opted for a stunning faux-bois wallpaper to complete the look.
Neutral Living Room With Splashes of Plum and Sage
This living room features a plum and sage green color scheme and a minimalist approach to decor. Glass doors, windows and light-colored walls keep the space feeling bright, and a wood-burning stove adds an unexpected touch.
Neutral tones and Scandinavian-inspired furniture fill this modern living room. Framed records hang above the wall-mounted TV opposite a large navy sofa with chaise. Oversized windows let it lots of natural light and are treated with neutral, horizontally-striped drapes.
A cozy white sectional pairs with a sleek gray coffee table and neutral floor poufs to create a comfortable space for friends and family to relax. A textured gray rug grounds the space, while exposed wood beams bring in a rustic vibe overhead.
Painted Brick Walls, Modern Black and White Art and Sleek Glass TV Stand in Modern Loft Living Room
White painted brick walls are decorated with a modern black and white canvas to emphasize the minimalistic and modern design. A large plant brings a pop of color and life to the bright, neutral tones of the room and furniture.
Wooden accents add texture and warmth to this all-white living room to give it a beachy feel. Stacked firewood, stored in a floor-to-ceiling wall inset, contrasts with the smooth fireplace surround for a rustic modern look.
Whether you are renting or owning, in a city or town for one year or in a forever home, there is no reason you can't personalize and customize your space. Emily Henderson advises you "go into your attic or box of mementoes" for artwork and sculptural elements in your home in place of expensive, original artworks. "If it's two-dimension and means something to you, it can become a piece of art." The living room coffee table is a repurposed circus elephant stand painted with black spray paint, as is the etagere in the far corner. Circular forms that bring in a hip, Eighties vibe repeat in the couch and mantel mirror and peacock blue and natural wood side tables in the room to bring cohesion and purpose.
