This living room from designer Amy Bubier brings warmth and a modern twist to a Southwestern-style home with a shag rug, rich warm colors and desert plants. A neutral tan paint color is a good backdrop for burnt orange accent furniture and pillows. Every room needs a little sparkle so the orange silk throw pillows have tiny mirrors sewn on to reflect light.
This den has a sofa bed in the event that the space needs to be used as guest quarters. A variety of seating styles are unified around an oversized plaid ottoman, while beadboard paneling adds a casual layer to the wallpapered walls.
A peaceful and relaxing sitting area with a soft gray color palette is accented with natural wooden details. The contemporary dresser adds to the traditional feel of the space while the patterned pillow and gray throw complete the cozy feel.
To create a space with plenty of seating for guests, Chip and Joanna, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, brought in a large sofa and two stylish chairs. To modernize the space, beige walls replaced outdated wallpaper and industrial details add a unique twist on a modern design. Yellow pillows and metallic lamps add a unique touch of color.
Contemporary Neutral Sitting Room With Window Wall
Neutral matching chairs arranged symmetrically around a square ottoman creates a crisp, clean living space that doesn't distract from the amazing skyline view. A wall of windows and glass balcony railing provide clear, unobstructed views.
Transitional Sitting Room With Blue Velvet Armchairs
Designed to lead the eye out to the pool and patio area, this linear sitting room arrangement creates a direct path outdoors with a long, narrow chaise and strategically placed rugs. A symmetrical arrangement of wall mirrors reflects natural light from the double doors and makes the room appear larger.
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.
Light yellow walls provide a bright background for this contemporary sitting room. A black modern swiveled lamp stands next to a modern lounge rocking chair with white cushions. A striped pillow compliments the colors of the multicolor blocked rug. Tall black and white shelves provide perfect book storage.
A light-colored backless sofa and armchair create an elegant seating area. Two matching Victorian tables with gold legs and black tops sit on the light pink rug. Darker pink pillows and floor-length drapes counter the light furniture and white walls. French doors open onto a small porch to enjoy the view.
Contemporary Sitting Room With Large Neutral Banquette
A long built-in banquette takes the place of a sofa in this white sitting room. Mounds of pillows and a pair of club chairs soften the space. A glass-topped coffee table seems to float above the gold shag rug, and a dramatic curtain of glass beads completes the room's glamorous feel.
A sitting room just off the home's dining area boasts heavy, wood bookshelves that display the homeowner's extensive collection of books and figurines from their travels together. Luxurious furnishing help to complement the exquisite tone of the room, while a bar area makes entertaining easy in this intimate space.
