10 living rooms we love

By: Elaine Song
Whether you're relaxing after a long day or entertaining friends and family, the living room is just that - it's where you live. Being a room that doesn't require appliances, the space is completely reliant on its decor. We've rounded up 10 different living rooms that showcase a variety of styles and personalities - all different and all of which we love.

1 Contemporary condo
Playing off a black-and-white palette, designer Stacey Cohen adds sparkle through a gorgeous orb light fixture and silver nailhead detail she added to the sofa. The turquoise accents around the room are vibrant and playful, and give the living room that perfect pop of colour.

This eclectic living room marries vintage furniture with modern pop art that works thanks to the repeated colour palette throughout the space. The variety (and mix) of seating, as well as the use of colour and pattern, make this room a welcome place for friends and family.

3 Classic and colourful
The colourful adventure of this living room began with a $10-a-yard chartreuse fabric that, once hung, injected incredible energy into the entire space. While the classic furnishings give a nod to the traditional, they also allow for the bright, bold punches of of personality.

4 Modern organic
Wood accents, textured rugs and blankets, and antler decor give the impression that this living room has been lifted from a cozy cottage. Once a space cluttered with antiques, it was swept clean to create a basic and comforting retreat. The use of chrome on the coffee table and side table provide a small, but effective contemporary and chic touch.

6 Hollywood drama
Black-and-white has never looked so decadent. Inspired by a tuxedo, this living room seduced us with its old Hollywood glamour from the crisp white walls to the luxe black carpet to the glitzy nailhead details and lighting fixture.

9 Bold bachelor pad
Bold, traditional and masculine chic quickly come to mind in this room. While the rest of the home is modern and avant-garde, the living room furniture and decor speak to a more traditional style, using family treasures and antiques. The gold-plated Phillipe Starck gun lamp does provide a touch of unconventional whimsy seen throughout the rest of the home.

10 Vintage charm
This beach style home is the perfect example of how a pastel palette, florals and vintage fabrics can soften a room. All these elements harmoniously blend together to create a soothing, airy space where comfort is seemingly mandatory.
