Neutral fabrics, casual furnishings and hints of organic combine to create a calm and relaxing gathering space in the HGTV Green 2009 living room.
Pops of Color
Organic fabrics in neutral shades were chosen to let saturated colors pop in the great room. Two lounge chairs are covered in paprika-colored upholstery fabric to connect this cozy gathering space to the bright and fun lounge area.
The coffee table, crafted from reclaimed wood, displays a wicker basket filled with emerald fronds.
A metal fish sculpture, originally finished in a mottled gold, was repainted in a crisp white to pop against the earthy wood surface.
Lounge chairs in stone and paprika-colored fabrics let accessories shine. Greco and zebra-print pillows add a modern pop.
Layers of texture combine in a quiet vignette. A driftwood mirror presides over a faux-bois demilune table that holds a planter of snake plant. An adjacent abaca stool holds a solitary orchid plant.
Layers of sun- and sand-worn driftwood frame an oversized mirror, which reflects light around the room.
A Flat-Screen View
A 52-inch Sony Bravia flat-planel HDTV invites guests to get comfortable.
A Big Comfort
Oversized pillows in a fun, geometric pattern stand out against the sofa, covered in a subdued taupe fabric.
A Shining Light
Shiny carousel lamps with drum-shaped shades flank the sofa.
Teak root tables – complete with visible growth rings – stand up against and counterbalance the formal shape of the sofa.
A floor lamp with a distressed metal base shines a spotlight on a lounge chair, the ideal spot to read or watch TV.
A Clear Statement
Hand-blown glass vases with exterior ribbing details rest atop a metal console table with white resin top. The vases echo the color and shine of glass mosaic tile in the kitchen.
The living room offers a view of the clerestory, which shines a natural spotlight on the gathering space during daytime. After dusk, a massive 45-light, 3-tiered chandelier illuminates the space.
A Bright Transition
The living room area is just steps from the bright and cheerful lounge. Paprika-colored upholstery ties the space to this more boisterous gathering spot.
A Tropical Glimpse
The living room area provides a sneak peek into the master suite, a tropical retreat inspired by the beauty and colors of Florida's Treasure Coast.
