Leather, wood, fabric, metal or faux fur would all impart something different to your design. Start with a white leather loveseat and two metal chairs, and pair them with a cozy black throw blanket or rug. Next, add pattern and details with statement accent pillows, such as ones with black/ivory patterns in chevron or geometric shapes, or coralline black tassels.

This is a great way to create a feature wall in a living room. Feature walls look best when they are symmetrical, so make your shelving units equal in size. In the living room design above, we used open shelves. You can also add doors to cover the lower portion for closed storage. Add a pair of sconces and a mirror or painting above the fireplace to complete the look.

Hanging family portraits, photos, and artwork is a simple solution to give your pathway a personal touch. Choosing coordinating frames in a single color, like we see in this long hallway from Style at Home, creates a cohesive look.

If you’re looking for a place to get started, we recommend one of our Freshome favorites: the Drake Sofa from West Elm, pictured above in Twill in Dark Horseradish. Some of our writers love the bright pop of yellow, while others prefer the more lush look of Distressed Velvet in Forest or Dusty Blush. All this to say, your accent furniture is a place to showcase your design preferences and pick a piece that will wow your friends.

While ceiling fans are certainly not as popular as they once were, in warmer climates they are sometimes necessary. Rather than trying to overdo it and installing both overhead lights and fans, consider two-in-one options to maximize space. In this mid-century modern room, the old-fashioned ceiling fans fit right in.

Turn it into an asset by adding a built-in desk to create a functional and attractive home office space. A built-in desk does not have to be complicated, expensive or even require a contractor to install it. You can make one desk yourself like the one above with a few basic items – a desktop, a few wall shelves and a drawer unit.

It can’t just be a space for entertainment, it also needs to be a space for entertaining. When choosing electronics, furniture, decor and lighting for your dream living room, picture the space full of people. Will it comfortably accommodate the groups you plan to host? Sectional furniture that can be moved around can help you carve out a better entertaining area. Hideaway TVs can make the space feel more intimate and dimmable lights can create ambiance. In short, when planning your dream living room, think through how it will function whether you’re curled up on the couch solo or you’re entertaining a large group.

Panoramic living rooms blessed with locations above glittering cities, where birds are the only creatures comfortable reaching these heights, are simply unbelievable. A hillside panoramic living room overlooking San Francisco showcases a very masculine collection of details under high ceilings. Oversized windows transforms city views into a framed, living work of art.

All you need are new throw pillows and you can make your couch work with virtually any theme.

We love a good, square sectional sofa or one that invites you to plop down, like the Hamilton Leather Sofa from West Elm. Still not sure which couch is right for you? Check out this guide on the different sofa styles for more clarity.
