Eclectic Living Room
"This great room uses neutral colors as a calm backdrop for French antiques and abstract art." --Faltrene Decorates
Why we love it: The large, ornate coffee table is a stunning centerpiece to the room. Feminine details, such as the fringed sofa and delicate side tables, add richness and style. Luxurious pillows help make the space warm and comfortable.
Warm Brown Room
"This room was built for comfort." --ContainerNut
Why we love it: Combining leather sofas with cloth cushions adds style and texture to this living room. The large rug anchors the room, and coordinating window treatments bring the chocolate brown and mossy green color scheme upward.
Cozy Living Room
"This room is filled with things I love!" --lover33
Why we love it: The light walls and furniture are a great backdrop to the dark drapes and rich rug. Matching side tables and lamps balance the seating area.
Small Space, Big Style
"My French country living room on a budget." --staceynvb
Why we love it: The red fabric and accessories add a splash of pretty color to the small room. The rest of the room is neutral, but warm. Tufted furniture offers a luxurious touch.
Sunny Living Room
"My living room is very bright with red, orange, green, and yellow vases." --dbrooks686463
Why we love it: Built-in cabinetry and shelves perfectly display pottery. Also, colorful vases like these are a great way to add a little brightness to an otherwise neutral space because they can easily be moved or change. The red chairs are a nice complement.
Sleek and Modern
"A new paint scheme and re-tiled fireplace breathed new life into this old room." --smartblonde1968
Why we love it: Beautiful tile refreshes the face of the fireplace and helps make it the focal point of the room. The white mantel, trim, and crown molding are a nice contrast to the mocha-colored walls.
Charming Living Room
"I replastered the walls and patched the hardwood floors." --quietstorm813
Why we love it: The curvy sofa, rich fabrics, and antique-looking accessories give this living room a romantic feeling. Cranberry red and soft camel are pretty colors that work well with the dark wood.
Close for Comfort
"This room was completely made-over from floor to ceiling." --mschornoafhs
Why we love it: The homeowner chose to group the furniture close together, creating an intimate conversation area. Investing in multipurpose pieces, such as this leather ottoman, that can be used as a coffee table, foot rest, or additional seating, is a smart choice.
"This is my traditional and cozy family room." --grindelc17266
Why we love it: The white built-in has classic lines and is refreshingly uncluttered. The sideboard and small quartet of artwork give purpose to a wall that would be easy to neglect. Soft fabrics and a warm rug give the room a lived-in quality.
Snug and Homey
"In my living room I love the fireplace, shelf, and windows." --suemfarrell
Why we love it: This room has a very cozy, traditional feel. The patterned rug over the hardwood floor adds texture. The substantial wood mantel makes the fireplace the focal point of the room.
Making Orange Work
"This condo is a nice place to retire; here is part of the great room." --wildcat44
Why we love it: Orange is a brave color choice and pairing it with black, white, and tan helps to tone it down. The round ottoman is a unique piece of furniture that can be used in several ways. Decorative pillows which coordinate in darker shades of the wall color add comfort and style.
"I painted the fireplace wall in deep forest green while the other walls are a warm beige." --dcassidy3343496
Why we love it: Dark colors, such as forest green and burgundy, are balanced by the neutral fireplace and accents make this traditional living room work. The floral print chair incorporates the whole color scheme.
Cottage Living Room
"I chose soft colors -- sage, cream, and maroon." --theteaprincess
Why we love it: Grouping the couch, loveseat, and chair in this arrangement creates a cozy conversation area. Choosing the maroon accent color for the rug is a smart choice because it helps the color scheme from becoming boring.
Fun and Bold Furniture
"This is my first home on my own!" --staceynvb
Why we love it: Cheery red really livens up this adorable living room. Beige walls along with white and black accents prevent the color from being overwhelming. The shelves above the sofa are unique and uncluttered.
Soft Modern Living Room
"I wanted a living room that was hip and modern but also elegant and beautiful." --spyder4gm
Why we love it: The color palette in this living room is soothing and peaceful, without being dull. Soft shades of blue, green, cream, and brown get a kick from surprising leather, glass, and metal accents. An intricate rug frames the seating area, yet still exposes the gorgeous wood floors.
Brown and Gold Living Room
"I did a faux finish on the wall and rearranged the furniture." --spettiette
Why we love it: Mixing and matching red and leather pillows between the pair of sofas makes them coordinate nicely. The intricate rug picks up all the colors in the room, including the golden paint treatment.
