Outdoor Living Area is Transitional, Inviting
Surrounded by lush greenery and trees, this outdoor living area is perfect for entertaining. A pair of sleek chairs and comfortable sofa combine for a cozy seating area, while wicker armchairs and contemporary chairs surround a galvanized metal table for dining al fresco.
A soft neutral palette sets the stage for a welcoming, restful living space. Deep, cushy furniture is the perfect place to gather, while a game table sits beside the built-in entertainment center. Texture is brought into the monochromatic palette through the exposed brick wall, natural fiber area rug and mix of throw pillows.
The homeowner revamped the guest house for intimate gatherings and music performances. In the main living room, a comfortable gray sofa is paired with an industrial-style coffee table, simple artwork and layered area rugs for lots of texture.
A comfortable wicker sofa is situated by the fireplace for snuggling up on cool nights, while a cushioned swing is situated by a large opening for enjoying the breeze on warm afternoons. A rustic dining table with matching benches offers a place for casual outdoor dining.
A traditional fireplace with flatscreen TV above is a chic focal point in this elegant, transitional living room. An oversized sectional pairs with a mirrored coffee table and contemporary chandelier to create a comfortable, family-friendly seating area.
Open Transitional Living Room is Comfortable, Inviting
A modular sectional sofa brings a grounding contemporary element to the decor, while a large cocktail ottoman with tufted faux-leather contributes a slightly old-world accent. A large window opens up the living room to the dining area.
Desert Outdoor Living Space is Contemporary, Inviting
Simple, low-water landscaping highlight this contemporary outdoor living space, creating a seamless transition with its natural surroundings. The inviting outdoor kitchen and dining area sit under a sleek pergola, which helps to define the space and provides shade during the daytime. A fire pit with modern armchairs is the perfect spot to enjoy the evening.
Covered Outdoor Living Space is Relaxing, Inviting
A floating walkway leads from the open concept home to a covered pavilion, where an oversized chandelier makes a dramatic statement. Comfortable outdoor furniture is the perfect spot to relax and take in the surrounding views of Ballito, South Africa.
Transitional Open Plan Living Room is Calm, Inviting
Cool neutrals, rich textiles and ample lighting create a serene, relaxed atmosphere in this transitional living room. An open floor plan lends a sense of unity to the space, and engineered hardwood floors add warmth.
Warm, Inviting Midcentury-Modern Living and Dining Areas
Within this open-concept home, ceiling heights help define the individual spaces. The ceiling stretches higher above the living and dining rooms and falls lower above the kitchen and bar. Warm wood built-ins, wood floors and wood furniture pieces make the midcentury-modern space feel cozy and inviting.
Inviting Foyer and Living Area With Exposed Beam Ceilings
An obtrusive utility closet, just inside the front entrance, was removed to facilitate the creation of a welcoming foyer that flows naturally into the main living area. A soft, gray tufted sofa, high-backed wooden bench, chandelier and exposed beam vaulted ceilings all add to the inviting vibe of the space.
Inviting Outdoor Living Space Complete With Backyard Art Studio
The shed-style art studio has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light entering the space. Square concrete paver walkways with Mexican pebble joints connect the studio with the house, fire pit area and concrete patio. Pea gravel makes for a clean and budget-friendly mulch material.
Inviting Outdoor Patio With Dining Area and Large Pergola
The pergola's beam construction and dark staining integrates visually with the new beams at the front entrance and perimeter of this renovated country house. Three sets of wood-trimmed French doors line the patio and lead the way to the indoor space.
