What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tone-on-tone designsAn even more vibrant blue is still an easy colour to mix. It works beautifully in tone-on-tone designs, such as this living area by Scott Weston Architecture Design, to give the sense of dramatic colour even when most is essentially the same hue.Try combining pure, chilly blues with green-blues or blue-indigos to get subtle variation while visually tying the hues together. Include a few hot accents for contrast – flowers are a great way to add a red or violet counterpoint.
Creating drawing rooms, formal living and dining areas in our homes doesn’t require borrowing from Downton Abbey to create dark, smokey rooms full of Turkish rugs and unread tomes. Modern drawing rooms, generally smaller than formal living rooms, can be light and airy. A set of armchairs, a side table and a beautiful rug can define this room from others in the house and make it an inviting space to discuss matters of the day, or to read a book in peace and quiet with no television to distract.Browse contemporary living rooms
