    Your work is lovely and I like every part of this living room and extended area. I wondered if the container sitting atop the left built-in cabinet was made of soapstone or some other material? Thank you; your firm does amazing work! donnapennington4

10. Use light-colored woods. Light wood finishes like white oak, natural maple and those with gray undertones keep the organic look going strong by letting you see the grain. (Darker stains can cover up the grain and make the pieces look heavier.) Light woods also look great with neutral fabrics.More: When Mother Nature Meets Your Modern Nature

16. Fully decorated living rooms that don’t go overboard. How do you know when you haven’t decorated enough, or decorated too much? Designers pay attention to scale, light, function and more to strike the right balance. See more on fully decorated living rooms that don’t go overboard

5. Coastal FarmhouseDesigner: Wendy BlackbandLocation: Newport Beach, CaliforniaYear built: 2015 Homeowners’ request: A space for entertaining with a contemporary coastal farmhouse feel. A large seating arrangement inside, as well as on the front patio to which the living room opens through folding doors, helped achieve this. Plan of attack: The house was a new build, so designer Wendy Blackband visited the site several times during construction to better understand how things should flow, how the layout should take shape and how the materials and finishes would come together before she selected furnishings. Maintaining open pathways became a challenge once the furniture filled the room. But proper space planning and a few minor adjustments allowed Blackband to create two adequate walkways through the space. Why the design works: “What immediately stood out to our design team was the huge open floor plan encompassing the kitchen, dining room, living room and bifolding doors leading out to the patio,” Blackband says. “With one large seating arrangement focused on the fireplace, it helped break up the open layout. The large folding doors to the front patio help bring the outdoors in, allowing extra seating and table space.”Designer secret: Keeping the furnishings and accessories muted using grounded neutrals and bright whites. “Because sometimes understated is best,” Blackband says. She also used soft and tonal furnishings so they wouldn’t distract from the architectural details inside the home. “One thing that makes this home tricky is that the entire home can be viewed from the street or from people walking by,” she says. “So by having two chairs back up to the folding doors, it makes the space feel more open versus putting a sofa there that would have blocked off the view of the interiors.”
