Contemporary Living Room in Neutral Colors with Old World Charm

Contemporary room with vaulted ceiling

To the right is an interesting mixture of Traditional  and Contemporary elements. IT appears this room could be from an old country manor. The darker beams attract the eyes upward to the tall dark deams of the vaulted ceiling. There are no strong colors used in this room. The palette is for the most part golds, browns, creams, and black. I would rather see a rug centered to better define the sitting area and a bit more color added to the room.

Modern Living Room with Dramatic Lighting

This Living Room is a great example of lighting effectively adding interest and drama to a modern room design. Recessed lighting is dirested specifically to highlight the features of the sone wall. I would prefer a rug to be added and the couches should probably be moved closer to the coffee table.  Also, the wall art on the left wall seems too small for the wall and the room and should be positioned lower. But still the look of the room is gorgeous.
