Contemporary Living Room With Fireplace Niche

This Spanish Modern house is home to a young family of four. The design is a graceful blend of Art Deco and midcentury styles, with fun pops of color that add life to the rooms. Here, in the living room, white space is just as important as the art pieces, helping to create a sense of peace as well as spotlighting special moments, like the niche above the fireplace.

Blue and Green Transitional Living Room

What started as an empty, white-walled space is now a lively blue and green living room. The walls are a pale blue, with a light green on the ceiling and in the backs of the built-in bookcases. Pale blue chairs and an ottoman covered in blue-and-green circles give the room a cozy vibe.

Round Chandelier, Ottomans Draw Attention in Living Room

Truly a feast for the eyes, this elegant living room combines rich cream and gold hues to create a spectacular setting. A Mallorca chandelier adds a touch of drama as the room's centerpiece and pairs beautifully with the round ottomans below it. Mixed patterns on the accent pillows and rug further accentuate the room's luxurious and eclectic style.

A custom built-in fireplace is flanked by comfortable window seats, creating a beautiful focal point for this eclectic living room. A nubby cream-colored area rug softens and adds warmth to the hardwood floor, while a mix of texture and patterns is used throughout the space to make for an elegant yet cozy living room.

Contemporary Living Room Complete With Coral + Teal Rug

Because the home's floor plan is so open, designer Kerra Michelle Huerta also used the couple's sectional to separate the living room from the formal dining space. A large area rug softens the floor below and complements the bright pops of coral, too.
