Welcome to our gallery featuring pictures of elegant living room designs.
This collection houses rooms that anyone would be proud to douse in superlatives, including luxurious, stately, lush, and grand.
With a dizzying array of styles, materials, and colors matched in endless combination, these rooms are set to inspire awe in all who enter.
The only truly recurring motifs are a focus on texture and detail, and a strong visual narrative tying the disparate spaces together.
Some of these rooms share large, open spaces with dining and kitchen areas. Some pack a surprising amount of fine detail into compact spaces.
Still others reach for the skies with soaring ceilings, full height windows and marble fireplace surrounds, and elaborate chandeliers.
The more interesting and quirky designs feature a melding of moods: tropical touches on old fashioned luxury, modern structures in natural materials, and bold leaps of color across multiple furniture pieces and wall decoration are but a handful of examples.
We hope you feel as inspired by these rooms as we are.
