Simple, sleek furnishings and window treatment allow the bold-patterned wallpaper to stand out. A sparkling chandelier brightens the room and complements a glass pendant light that hangs over an adjacent banquette area. The small banquette table provides a perfect spot for board games or entertaining.
Color galore! The blues of the ocean and greens of grass make this eclectic kidtastic living room come alive. Vibrant modern art and boldly printed rug create a whimsical space. The comfy sofa is chock-full of patterned pillows that can change with the seasons.
Custom window treatments, new furniture and a flat screen TV on a hand-painted console complete this redesigned room. The family room features a traditional color palette and beautiful hardwood floors.
Entertain in elegance with this formal living room, complete with ornate sage and blue sofas, built-in wood bookshelves and hearth, an exquisite oriental rug, custom drapery, and patterned ottoman. "The blue and green work together because they are analogous colors of similar intensity," says designer Cynthia Mason. For a more modern feel, deepen the intensity to kelly green and navy.

Bright, Kid-Friendly Living Room Perfect for Every Age
A play area on one half of this family room is perfect for keeping children entertained while adults can relax in the other half.

Throw pillows, a blanket and fun wall art keep the space colorful.
Here, a palette of two rich colors creates a warm, inviting atmosphere that packs a bold punch. A yellow contoured sofa is paired with multicolored throw pillows and an orange chair to create a small sitting area beside a balcony.
This traditional living room, in dark shades of orange and yellow, is guaranteed to brighten anyone's day. It features a built-in sofa with storage beneath, a distressed coffee table, small dining area and custom windows with clerestory panel and beautiful oriental rug.
