Neutral Living Room With Benches for Movable Seating
A beige sofa serves as a neutral backdrop for this cozy seating area, designed by Sarah Richardson. With neutral colors on the walls and large furniture, there's room for playing with bolder, whimsical prints on accent pillows and small pieces.
The couple turned a small upstairs bedroom into a nursery to accommodate their growing family. The neutral colors make it a sweet place for a baby, while the light pouring in from the window and the chandelier on the ceiling makes the space light.
With the concept of “weightlessness” and “optical illusion” in mind, this living room hits all the right notes. The furniture gives the illusion of floating atop the blue rug, which mimics water. The soaring picture windows, reminiscent of an aquatic viewing tank, invite on-lookers to take in the beauty of this other-worldly environment.
After purchasing the house, Ron and Jane decided to keep all of the interior pine cladding original rather than painting or staining it. Pine is one of the most affordable woods available and evokes a casual vibe, a staple for mountain living.
If youâ€™re looking for a spot to express your creative side as a family, your coffee table may be the perfect place. Protect the surface with a table cloth or a large flat weave rug by placing a drop cloth or roll of craft paper beneath it. Next, lay out painting or crafting supplies with a cohesive color scheme among vessels.
A small home office, featured on HGTV's Design Star, is staged in front of a large picture window. The bright red desk is inspired by an architect's drafting table, and adds a splash of color against mint green walls. A classic desk lamp and molded armchair complete the look.
Eclectic Blue and Orange Living Room With Fireplace and Paisley Patterned Chairs
A vivid orange painting hangs over a fireplace, jumping out against the blue walls of this living room. A thick striped wall and paisley patterned chairs are offbeat additions that is trademark of eclectic design.
Designers added a blue-gray wall to this space in order to create a divide between the new living and dining rooms. The existing carpet was removed and natural hardwood floors were installed, in addition to a mustard yellow area rug and stainless steel dining table. White and brown geometric curtains frame the dining room window.
In the dining room, the homeowners needed a space that could accommodate their many friends, so designers installed a bench seat that could do just that. The wraparound bench is upholstered in comfortable materials and accented with colorful pillows, while modern chairs provide additional seating. The word art on the wall is perfect for a kitchen, creating a double meaning, while the modern light fixture finishes off the space.
Soft Gray Living Room With Large Window, Traditional Fireplace & Tufted Sofas
Sunlight pours into this spacious living room, which is well-appointed for watching TV, enjoying the fire or simply lounging. The room is marked by its matching tufted sofas and dual circular coffee tables. Aqua-toned armchairs add a special punch of color.
This neutral transitional living room takes a turn for the unexpected by placing decorations in and around the fireplace. Candles fill the fireplace while a mirror on the wall hangs in place of a television.
A vibrant outdoor rug anchors this patio in pattern and color. A mix of rustic and tropical wood furniture, a few strings of lights and scattered container gardens create a bohemian vibe. In close proximity to the backdoor, this outdoor living room space is perfect for casual entertaining.
