Transitional Sitting Room Invites Conversation
A tranquil landscape looms so large in this sunny corner it feels as if one could step into it. The modern, graphic fabric on a pair of wicker chairs echoes the intricate lines of the leaded glass windows. Weighty accessories of varying heights on the round table balance the artwork and bring proportion to the space.
Neutral Transitional Bedroom Sitting Area With Flat-Panel TV
This transitional bedroom features a sitting area with a flat-panel TV for viewing and a lucite floor lamp for reading. A beige zebra print armchair and rich cherry dresser add visual interest to the space.
The floor of this boutique is a herringbone pattern tile that looks like wood to brighten up the space and pairs well with the fuchsia chairs. The jewelry display unit has panels of antique glass and brass framed shelves to coordinate with the custom clothing rack design
In this sitting room, the color comes from the accessories: books grouped together in similar hues and two bright paintings on the wall. The furniture and walls' neutral palette allows flexibility throughout the rest of the space.
Dark, Rich Patterned Contemporary Sitting Room With Yellow Accent Details
Texture and pattern take over in the contemporary design of this sitting room. A black border divides sections of blue and neutral wall covering, and a neutral wall accent panel adds dimension to the space. A blue graphic rug and yellow graphic throw pillow add pops of color to the neutral sofa and furniture. A beautiful black lamp with layers of shades is the perfect lighting addition.
Bohemian Sitting Room Featuring Multicolor Rugs, Backless Bench and Natural Light in Modern Loft
Multicolor striped rugs bring a fun bohemian influence to this loft sitting space. Natural light from the windows keep the space bright and calm. Low furniture makes the room look spacious and open. A neutral backless bench and large houseplants fill the space.
Contemporary Black and White Chair in Country Fireplace Sitting Room
Contemporary art over the mantel compliments the contemporary style of the black and white chair in this living room. A differing black and white pattern on the throw pillow creates intrigue in the look without being overpowering. The gorgeous wood mantel frame is an attractive contrast to the bright white walls and the textural brick fireplace.
Master Bedroom Sitting Area With Long Vertical Sheer Panels
In a master bedroom that was all about cozy luxury, designer Lauren Macer created an inviting seating area using existing pieces from her client’s collection. “The armchairs are vintage pieces, however they were upholstered in black leather that was damaged. I reupholstered them in a beautiful soft linen fabric for a completely different look,” she says. “When looking for vintage furniture pieces, the most important element is shape. The upholstery, wood color and the condition of the filling can all be changed — so keep an open mind and don’t let a strong pattern or color distract you.”
With hand-painted, tree-covered wallpaper, this traditional parlor becomes an enchanting space for entertaining guests and sharing intellectual conversations. A plush white sofa and gilded, 18th century chairs offer plenty of spaces to sit, while a crystal chandelier, lamps and candelabras provide radiant light for any occasion.
This master bedroom features a luxurious sitting area for relaxing. A posh gray velvet sofa provides stylish seating and coordinates beautifully with the gray patterned curtains, and a white Eames lounge chair adds a modern touch.
This master bedroom sitting area features a pair of neutral upholstered wood armchairs positioned next to a burlap covered coffee table. A pendant light hangs above, while a neutral throw and pillows add finishing touches.
This small sitting area might have a neutral palette, but the vibrant patterns bring it to life. With these intricate designs, the grasscloth walls, wicker basket and sisal rug, this space feels like a relaxing paradise where one can cozy in and enjoy a good book.
