Contemporary Living Room With Colorful Curtains

The star attraction of this spacious family room is the window treatments: The pattern is an intense floral with bearded dragons and Chinese lanterns. To balance out its boldness, the designers kept the room's other prints subtle: a medium-scale geometric on the rug, a small scale geometric on the sectional pillows and a casual, tie-dye stripe on the chair pillows.

Living Room With Asian Shades and TV

The design inspiration for this family room was the beautiful, vibrant shade fabric: “Chiang Mai Dragon” from Schumacher. Its color palette of teals, reds, plums and chartreuses served as the base for the rest of the room, creating a fresh and youthful energy.

Neutral Transitional Living Room With Lucite Table

The mix of patterns in this pretty family room works because the scale is all small and the colors relatively mellow: a beige-and-white base perked up by pops of yellow and turquoise.

Contemporary, Gray Living Room is Open, Airy

Sleek furniture in shades of gray create a calming, contemporary base for this modern living room. Built-in bookshelves house favorite accessories and art pieces, while floral-printed Roman shades bring pattern to the space. A Lucite coffee table takes center stage to keep the entire space airy and bright.

White Built-In Bookshelf With Vases

Keeping the bookshelves from being stuffed full adds to the airy, open feel of this family room. Instead, the shelves are used for a mix of storage and display, placing art and pretty vases amongst stacks of books.

Teal Accents Meet Subtle Patterns

A teal bench and accent pillow add a splash of color to this corner of the room, enlivening the crisp white walls. With subtle patterns in the furniture and area rug below, the vignette is stylish yet sophisticated.
