Browns and neutrals

Mixed Coastal Living Room

The warm color palette, consisting of cream and chocolate with pops of orange and brown, derives from this Carmel, California home’s surroundings. A mix of modern and vintage furniture and accents.

Sandy-Hued Living Room

A pale, creamy palette is used in this coastal living room in Seaside Florida. A variety of prints and textures in neutral colors feels both casual and modern. 

Retro Glamour

A dark espresso hue envelops this dramatic room outside of Atlanta, Georgia where twin beds are cleverly disguised as a sectional sofa. Black-and-white photographs of cultural and political icons bring in a retro feel. Tone-on-tone wallcovering and a shag rug add interest to this monochromatic palette.

Comfortable Cottage Living

Whitewashed wood paneling is balanced with furniture and accessories in rich red and brown hues. An Oriental rug distinguishes the living space from the dining room, and a coffee table works well for both family game nights and for putting your feet up.

Louisiana Luxury Living Room

Located in a Shotgun-style home without a formal entryway, this monochromatic parlor acts as a space for welcoming and entertaining guests.

Casual Comfortable Living Room

Tongue-and-groove paneling reinforces the casual nature of this New Orleans living room. The hanging gas lanterns are a Big Easy icon. 

Nautical Living Room

A combination of blues and whites, and coastal-inspired accessories give this living room its ocean-going vibe. Light wicker furniture and a soft blue wing chair balance a heavier wood.

Chic, Functional Den

Because of its petite size, a pair of club chairs separated by a set of nesting tables provides space for relaxing. An oversize octagonal ottoman in a bold pattern becomes extra seating.

Airy Living Room

A sofa, covered in easy-care fabric, is grouped with two comfortable chairs to create a cozy seating arrangement in the combined living and dining area. A narrow table doubles as a work surface and dining table. The bench tucks under the table to save space.

Conversation Starter

A traditional swag on the living room mantel in this Birmingham, Alabama, home creates an element of surprise with its unexpected natural ingredients: tree branches and birch bark shavings. Four comfortable club chairs surround a large coffee table, creating the perfect place to relax by the fire. 

White Coastal Living Room

White paint updates brick walls and ceiling beams in this coastal South Carolina home. The furnishings and textiles channel a French country look with antiques and an array of printed fabrics.

Ocean View Living Room

A vibrant blue rug both anchors and inspires this California living room. An oversized, creamy white couch is covered with pillows in shades of blue to create a comfortable seating area. Two large, linen poufs make for extra (and movable) seating. A tiled coffee table feels exotic and coastal. 

Cottage Living Room

A plush sectional fitted into a corner gives maximum seating in minimum space. A mostly neutral palette is accented with navy blue cushions, a valance, and accessories.
