I am obsessed with beautiful living rooms. Whether your style is contemporary or traditional, what makes a great living room? In addition to the obvious, the rooms that attract my attention the most are the ones with well thought out vignettes that really work. Creating beautiful vignettes is an art. Visit Chris Shands home tour to take a look at how she concentrates on each corner of her rooms, and everywhere you turn, there is a sweet surprise to delight your senses. For instance, the poufs and coffee table styling in this contemporary living room design by san francisco photographer creates an inviting atmosphere to gather in.

Take a look at this soothing cool color combination of pale grey and yellow in this contemporary living room design by toronto interior designer Jennifer Brouwer. The pops of bright yellow are so cheerful and eye-catching.
For a warmer color combination, as seen in this modern living room design , Rachel Reider uses oranges and browns with complimentary neutral colors. What a fabulous nail head bench used as the coffee table!
You can never have enough bookshelves. Each cubby is the perfect opportunity to create you own work of art by arranging little vignettes including books, original art and sentimental treasures. I wish I had an entire wall of bookshelves like this one!
All of the above are elegant and stylish, yet very relaxed and comfortable rooms for today’s inspiration!
Beautiful living rooms tips: Start with a pleasing color palette and key furniture pieces. Other areas to think about are comfortable seating, beautiful fabrics, natural lighting, fun throw pillows, designer drapes, bookshelves and wall art, mirrors and lighting, rugs and flooring, and chic home decor items you have picked up along the way. Most importantly, have fun with it!
Our motto at BB&B is to “Live beautifully.”
