Traditional and Modern Elements Blend in Neutral Family Room

An array of design styles fuse in this light-filled family room, lending a transitional feel to the chic space. Color is introduced through an abstract painting and a traditional Persian rug, with texture in the way of a wood-paneled wall, creating an interesting juxtaposition of classic and modern elements.

Colorful Transitional Family Room With Wood-Paneled Wall

A traditional Persian rug, large-scale modern artwork and a wood-paneled wall give this open, airy family room a homey, transitional feel. A mod sectional sofa offers plenty of seating for guests, while an Eames lounge chair takes advantage of the view and natural light offered by a wall of windows.

Eclectic Neutral Living Space With Chic White Sectional

Freestanding bookcases and a piano turn this living area into a multifunctional space the whole family can enjoy. A contemporary, white leather sectional teams with modern artwork and a traditional rug to give the space an eclectic, casual vibe. Paneled walls add warmth.

Reading Nook With Chic Eames Lounge Chair

An Eames lounge chair paired with a contemporary floor lamp creates a reading nook with vintage flair in this family room. Concrete floors and floor-to-ceiling windows gain warmth when teamed with a wood-paneled accent wall. The petite gold side table adds a touch of glamor to the space.

TV Blends With Modern Art Collection on Sleek Console

Modern art flanks the TV and rests atop a custom white oak console by Honea Woodworks in this casual family room. Throughout the space, wood accents balance cool white walls and concrete floors. The adjoining dining room features the homeowners’ collection of vintage '60s furniture.
