From elegant living spaces that layer on the luxury to eclectic rooms brimming with color to divine dens, take a tour through our favorite living rooms.
Living rooms are one area of any home that really need to live—they need to be the perfect place to relax and to entertain friends while being malleable enough to grow and adapt along with the people who inhabit it. It might start with a sofa, but it grows to be about oh-so-much more.
Here are our pics for spaces that rise to the chill occasion. Take a look at some of the living rooms we think are really to die for.
Who says minimalism is boring? In Los Angeles, Homepolish designer Melanie Burstin tied together a family-friendly space with a limited, nature-inspired palette (to match those views), hand-crafted goods, and sleek shapes hiding clever storage.
After moving cross-country from NYC to SF, Homepolish designer Annouchka Engel paid homage to her new city with a living room that walks the line between the Bay Area’s dual styles of clean modernity and artful inclusivity.

Homepolish designer Haley Weidenbaum and her husband are avid travelers, so it was fitting when she filled their Los Angeles living space with an approachable mix of globally-inspired accents like French-style sofas and Persian rugs.
Eclectic living rooms can sometimes feel overwhelming (where am I actually supposed to sit), but Tali Roth infused casting director Zoe Rotter’s apartment with warm, muted hues and bohemian accents that begged you to sit and stay.
“At our initial consult, Kelley said she loved color so much that she wanted her home to look like the inside of a genie bottle,” says designer Alec Holland. The results seem to grant her wish, with happily hued space that begs you to unwind.
From the tour: A Modern, Industrial Brooklyn Loft
Homepolish designer Jae Joo faced some lofty expectations when designing this larger-than-life Brooklyn space, but she nailed the delicate balance of industrial and elegant. (As if we ever had a doubt that she would.)
Known for her luxurious, artistic spaces, Tali is never one to shy away from experimental shapes and shades. In her own New York City rental, she went beyond the usual temporary fixes for a customized living space that fits her personality to a T.
When you imagine hanging out in Southern Californian, do you dream of an elegant living room with grand piano and chess nook? If so you might want to chat with Erin Kane about making that wonderfully stylish wish a reality.
Inspired by a classic painting, Marc Houston fully customized this Columbus Circle living room with a built-in banquette decked in terrazzo, architectural lighting, and transportive shades worthy of the MoMA.

Who said small living rooms can’t feel spacious? Not Homepolish designer, who made sure this Parachute editor’s cozy living quarters were just as covetable, thanks to airy shades and a smart furniture choices.
Modernism can sound easy, but balancing simple silhouettes and the pedigree of a classic home can be a real challenge. Well, not for our designer Liz Lipkin. Liz layered on loads of neutral textures (and a stunningly gritty piece of art) to keep this minimalist den warm and approachable.
