Zen-Inspired Living Room

See how host Kenneth Brown transforms a living room from a bygone era into a Zen-inspired retreat.

  • Although the 1950s living room is still quite lovely, it's just not this couple's style.
  • By bringing in subtle patterns, organic textures and soothing sounds, this room went from old and antiquated to contemporary and tranquil.
  • The homeowners can rearrange the arms on this square sofa so they can face any direction they'd like.
  • The homeowners built their very own water feature.
  • The rug and shelves in this room complement one another.
  • The tiles above the fireplace add even more texture to this Zen-inspired living room.
  • Bamboo stalks give the half wall add to the room's natural feel.
  • The faux treatment on the fireplace matches the half wall and water feature, giving the room balance.
