Under a wooden ceiling, a sunken living room rich in colorful details warms up the concrete connection to the outdoors. In a lake shore weekend home like architect Stuart Sampley’s revival of the traditional Texas dogtrot-style architecture, the living room design plays a key role in the overall weekend fun feeling this house bestows on its owners.
Homes are not always dramatic and dazzling, but details make a huge difference even in the most compact spaces. Take this townhouse as example: part of a luxurious NYC West Village townhouse, this comfortable furnishings and colors create a parlor room where socialization is key. The fireplace and floor to ceiling French windows leading to a terrace that overlooks the garden are massively charming, but all the details shape a elegant yet snug living room.
One of the most fun pieces to shop for your dream living room is the accent loveseat or sofa. While you may want to go more traditional with your primary couch color (see below), this is a place to have some fun. With maximalism trending, who says you can’t get a jewel-toned sofa is a rich velvet? Or a bold, patterned upholstery? Really, this is your opportunity to dream something up in your head, then buy it for your home.
