Hide CaptionShow CaptionA warm color on the walls and matching furniture combine to create a truly inviting living room.
Taking a cue from the Asian style of the permanent window treatments, designer Kristan Cunningham combines elements for an eclectic glamour with Asian tones. The rich, warm wall color makes the space feel more intimate while still being compatible with the bright, sunny room. She creates a comfortable center in the room with a large coffee table surrounded by the new matching couches. Separate seating areas have been added in the bay window and other areas of the room. These provide space to curl up with a book or for guests while entertaining.
