Contemporary Living Room


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Superfine Sofas
This sort of sectional in the background, cornered into the window area, becomes a window seat with lots of room. A set up like this of course offers the window seating but is also a smart set-up for dwellings that host parties and gatherings often. This allows for out-of-the way comfortable seating--and a long table and additional chairs can even be pulled up to it for a game night.
Now here is a chair that is neutral in color but not at all boring. The strange porportions here (a thick bottom cushion, a short back) along with the rounded style of the chair provide a look that causes you to do a double-take without overwhelming you in any way. The layout here shows how you can have other eye-catching pieces in the room - the long seating area, the curtains - without taking anything away from the chair. And doesn't it look comfy?!
Kit Pollard added this to Curtains for You!
Like the curtains above, this simple, small pattern adds a gorgeous decorative element to the whole space, making the curtains a pretty backdrop for simple decor.
The living room is another terrific place for a good windowseat. If the window is off to one side of the room then you can effectively create two separate lounging spaces in one room. This is great for families that want to spend time together but who also need a sense of privacy or personal space.
Kit Pollard added this to Really Big Windows
In many cases (like my house), big windows are left unadorned. But these pretty curtains are a great solution if that's not an option.
Kit Pollard added this to Unfussy Window Dressing
Speaking of pretty...I love this fabric. It adds so much dimension to the room, but doesn't overpower it at all.
