What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Understated and StylishA mostly monochromatic color palette helps give this living room in Houston a clean, serene and uncluttered feel. While there’s a lot going on around the fireplace, for example, with the tile surround, built-ins and millwork, the neutral colors and simple detailing don’t close off or overpower the room. “The placement of the furniture allows the client to sit and talk to guests face-to-face or watch TV comfortably,” builder and designer Ross Huthmacher of Ashwood Designs & Custom Homes says.Trim paint: Pure White; wall paint: Reserved White; door paint: Gibraltar, all Sherwin-Williams

Designer tip. “We feel the light walls and floors combined with the darker doors help make this room stand out,” Huthmacher says. “Originally the doors were a light gray and the room seemed bland. We went with a bolder color, and it really made it all come together.”Trim paint: Pure White, Sherwin-WilliamsFind a custom homebuilder near you
