Eclectic Living Room With Vaulted Ceiling

Furniture doesn't have to be tucked up against a wall. This large living area is a wonderful example of how you can float a seating arrangement in the center of a room, while keeping a spacious feel.

Dining Room With Interesting Chandelier

Part of what works so wonderfully in this dining room is the combination of shapes: a round mirror with artwork on either side paired with tall, vertical candlesticks. Over the table, the chandelier is a blend of strong lines and soft curves.

Window Seat Filled With Treasures

Gray paint, lots of books and a window seat turn this niche into the coziest possible spot to curl up. The shelves are the perfect spot to display treasures from the homeowner's travel.

Thoughtfully Curated Living Area

There's something fascinating on either side of the entrance to this room: one wall features a lovely console table and striking artwork. The other wall boasts an impromptu bar with a round mirrored cabinet that is ready to host cocktail hour.

Eye-Catching Art

A bold, yellow painting becomes the star of this living room's show, brightening up the whole space. Framed between two sets of French doors, the artwork is meant to be an extension of the outdoors.

Open Concept Living

This large room answers all needs with a dining table, sitting area and fireplace. The large beam overhead is a strong, visual anchor for the entire space.

Elegant Armchair Accompanies Fireplace

Leather armchair, sculptural table, gray matte fireplace ... texture and shape turn this sitting arrangement into a work of art.

Console Table Hosts Artwork

A simple gray console table becomes the stage for a tulip bouquet and elegant sculptural artwork. Behind the table a colorful yet simple painting brings the whole scene to life.
