The color palette for the living room was different hues of gray. In lieu of heavy drapery, breezy sheers were hung as high as possible in order to accentuate the vaulted ceiling and add some soft texture and drama.”Fireplace wall. “The existing fireplace mostly touted its fire box, which was black but didn’t have much else going for it,” Parkinson says. “Since the fireplace is gas, we simplified it by removing its glass doors and gave it a face-lift by minimizing the firebox — by cladding its opening surround with as much beautiful, juicy, rich tile in a soft gray as we could fit.”Other special features. “For a pop of contrast, we painted the beams at the ceiling with a charcoal gray and installed larger baseboards that were painted a crisp white,” Parkinson says. “I added some simple pendant lights, which give an extra layer of lighting that I think is key to creating mood.”“Uh-oh” moment. “When I went to have the new drapery rods hung at my planned height, I realized I’d forgotten about the supports for the beams,” Parkinson says. “I really wanted the custom drapery to be hung as high as possible, so we just had the contractor cut down the bottom portion of the support beams and voilà. Problem solved.”Tile: Encore Ceramics; pendants: Noir; wall paint: Ammonite, Farrow & Ball; rug: Zumba in Glisten, Fabrica; art: Leftbank ArtSee more of this homeMoreHow to Remodel Your FireplaceHow to Clean Your Fireplace SurroundOther Resources on HouzzGet living room ideasFind an interior designerBrowse fireplace products

3. Glorious GraysAdding a variety of gray finishes and furnishings was the key to creating a sophisticated living room in Huntington Beach, California. “The color palette for the living room was different hues of gray. In lieu of heavy drapery, breezy sheers were hung as high as possible in order to accentuate the vaulted ceiling and add some soft texture and drama,” says Designer Suzie Parkinson of Süza Design.The designer also painted the ceiling beams gray and softened the look of the fireplace. “The existing fireplace mostly touted its firebox, which was black but didn’t have much else going for it,” Parkinson says. She simplified the fireplace by removing its glass doors and cladding the surround in light-gray tiles.
