Sitting Area With Luxurious Gold Draperies
This cozy room's large windows are warmed by beautiful gold-colored curtains. The warm wood tones of a buffet table are carried throughout the room from an upholstered armchair to the soft gold-patterned wallpaper.
Decorated Outdoor Space with Cedar Table and Turquoise Lanterns
Take advantage of a privacy screen or wall separating your patio from neighbors. Hang lanterns, which can cast a glow at night without taking up floor or table space on a patio. Thrift shop for used wire lanterns or globes, spray paint then any shot of color you desire and add candles. A hanging glass lantern project is one that even beginner DIYers can handle.
Bright white walls pop against black-framed windows in this monochromatic family room. A large sectional sofa in gray provides seating for a crowd while the angular lines in the coffee table and floor lamp play off the geometric prints found on the rug and pillows.
Transitional Kitchen and Family Room With Sectional
The open plan of this kitchen made it easy to fit in a seating area at one end of the room. A comfortable sectional and armchairs make it a cozy gathering spot.

Glass details in this modern living area define the space and serve its main function of highlighting the spectacular ocean view. In a sitting room, four Mid-Century Modern chairs rest atop a neutral shag rug, offering a prime perch for enjoying the scenery. A unique glass-encased wine cellar divides the sitting room from the modern living room.
In a contemporary parlor that consists of white walls, carpet and floor-to-ceiling curtains, a large blue poster becomes a vivid focal point, encouraging guests to sit and reflect. Blue stripes across the floor complement the image and divide the room down the middle, thus distinguishing one seating area from the other.
A casual sitting room with a mix of traditional architecture and contemporary furnishings overlooks a quaint veranda with sweeping harbor views. This Gothic Revival mansion on Australia's Darling Point peninsula has been fully updated and restored to meet the needs of a modern family. Exterior porches span the length of the home, taking maximum advantage of its harbor-side location.
The fireplace is the focal point in this serene sitting room. A mosaic tile surround gives way to a wavy wood overlay that adds a striking sense of movement to room. Below, pretty throw pillows add cushion and color to the stone hearth. The neutral palette makes the space feel calm and sophisticated.
Entering this Mediterranean masterpiece, guests are greeted with a beautiful, marble spiral staircase that leads down into an open seating area complete with built-in alcoves to display fine artwork. Lit by a perfectly situated fireplace and a gorgeous glass chandelier, this cozy seating area s perfect for formal entertaining.
A faux-fur throw tops this soft gray chaise longue, making for a cozy seat in this intimate sitting area. Gold-and-white artwork and a floral arrangement dress up the space, while a metallic pedestal side table stands ready to hold a book or drink.
