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.

Contemporary Gray Family Room With Stone Fireplace

This family room features pale gray accents –– like the wall color and suede sofa –– paired with pops of bright turquoise and deep purple hues. A charcoal and white patterned area rug leads the way to a rustic stone fireplace, finishing the look of the space.

Hints of Gold in Transitional Living Room

A glass-top coffee table, tufted ottomans and an artful display of tabletop accessories add visual richness and depth to the sitting area. Across the space, glints of gold impart a subtle gracefulness.

Cool Blue Living Room With Marble Fireplace

Library lights spotlight object art and beloved books in the family room while a marble fireplace offers the perfect excuse to sit and relax. Cool blue tones flow from the piece above the mantle, inspiring this laid-back palette.

Eclectic, Feminine Living Room is Bright, Colorful

Custom bookcases and media cabinet are the focal point of this eclectic, feminine living room. The homeowner wanted to use pink throughout her Winter Park, Fla., home, so designer John McClain uses pink accessories in the bookcases, a sophisticated pink chair and even coffee table books in the rosy hue.

Neutral Living Room With Pop of Purple

Purple velvet chairs and pillows add texture and color to this neutral transitional living room. Layered rugs lie under a rustic coffee table. A silver floor length mirror reflects natural light, making the room appear larger.

Traditional Formal Sitting Room

With its towering ceiling and tall stucco fireplace, this formal living room makes a grand statement. Sets of French sitting chairs with wooden arms and English roll arm loveseats create a cozy space for conversation.

Open, Transitional Living Room is Rustic, Sophisticated

Exposed weathered beams and floating shelves bring a rustic quality to this open, transitional living room. White furniture creates a neutral base for the space, while a muted blue chair and striped curtains add soft color. A large brass chandelier is centered on the space, and the adobe-style fireplace adds a southwestern feel to the room.

Transitional Gray Living Room With a Mix of Patterns

Oversized tufted ottomans in dark gray create a cozy, comfortable sitting area paired with the slipcovered white sofa. Zebra-patterned linen draperies hung on oversized rods draw the eye up, heightening the space. French doors and lots of windows provide plenty of natural light to keep the room feeling open and spacious.

Gray Country Living Room With Exposed Beams

Rough sawn white oak beams help define this living room's vaulted ceiling; the custom-designed rustic coffee table matches the beams and pulls the look together.

Contemporary Living Room With Yellow Chairs

Bright yellow contemporary armchairs add a pop of color and whimsy to this open concept living room. Three small tables clustered together are more versatile than a traditional coffee table.

Spanish Living Room with Stone Entryway

This Spanish-style living room has the feeling of a modern-day Medieval great hall, with interior balconies, arched openings and an imposing stone entryway bridged by a dark-stained lintel. Slipcovered and weathered wood furnishings tone down the formality of the space, giving it a comfortable, welcoming vibe.

Eclectic Living Room is Sophisticated, Comfortable

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.

Crisp, Cool Living Room

Splashes of green give this transitional living room a fresh, contemporary appeal. Linen sofas keep the space light and airy. Double console tables, lamps, and mirrors frame the fireplace to draw attention and interest.

Bright & Airy Transitional Living Room With Built-Ins

Traditional architecture forms a pleasing backdrop for modern furnishings and accessories in this transitional family room. Built-in bookshelves flank the fireplace, and a bold, abstract painting provides a punch of color and creates a focal point. A pair of X-based benches beneath the media console can slide out for extra seating.

White and Blue Coastal Sitting Room With Lucite Table

The blue and white decor of this family room pulls in the sparkling blue of the swimming pool just steps away. In the center of the room, a lucite coffee table keeps the focus on the oversized print of the rug.

Open, High-Rise Living Room

The large flexible open space offers jaw-dropping views of downtown San Diego and the bay through the floor-to-ceiling windows. An orange shag area rug defines the living room seating area that features a large sectional. Grid-like squares create a focal wall where the TV and floating fireplace sit.

Living Room With Mirrored Coffee Table and Gray Tuxedo Sofa

This neutral transitional living room features a custom gray Hollywood Regency style tuxedo sofa from Gilded Home. Barbara Barry Chairs with textured white fabric, a mirrored coffee table with walnut trim, and a carved white wool area rug provide texture and interest. The sofa includes throw pillows in the same color family as the etched metal wall art in shades of gold and silver.

Eclectic, Gray Living Room is Formal, Feminine

The formal living room blends effortlessly with the rest of the home, but has a decidedly more intimate feel. Rich gray walls are paired with neutral furnishings and a gray graphic area rug. Curtains blend grays, pink and creams, while bright pink pillows add color.

Open Floor Plan Living Room and Kitchen

The comfortable living room features a traditional white sectional, elegant pink chair and tufted blue ottoman that is washable and pet-friendly. Striped curtains add bright visual texture to the space, while exposed wood beams create definition between the living space and kitchen.

Arched entryways keep the room feeling large and open the space between the dining room and kitchen.

Instead of white walls, try a soft gray. As seen in this chic living room, it's an equally flexible backdrop for fun pops of color but adds more personality and depth.

Contemporary Living Room Features Neutral Tones and Large Mirror

In this airy living room, mixing bold colors with bright whites and earthy textures honors the home's Spanish style architecture while creating a welcoming coastal look.

Great Room With Vaulted Wood Ceiling and Exposed Ductwork

This charming great room wows with high ceilings, industrial metal supports and exposed ductwork. Stone walls give the space an Old World feel, yet contemporary sofas and animal hide chairs bring an amazing, updated element. Space to store logs near the fireplace is both functional and decorative, and the TV above the fireplace makes this room truly multipurpose.

Neutral Basement Family Room With Green Ottoman

The two graphic print armchairs in this comfortable family room are on a swivel base, making it easy for occupants to join in on conversations or the big game on the flatscreen tv. The large green ottoman has a hidden storage unit inside, perfect for blankets or board games.
