I love living rooms. I like them big, with lots of seating of all types with accompanying ottomans, big fireplaces, tall ceilings and spectacular lighting.
When it comes to living room design, most of us can’t afford truly luxurious living rooms, but we can appreciate them and even gain some inspiration from them for our own living spaces.
This gallery of luxury living rooms, while ostentatious, and beyond most of our means, is fun to look at. I love this stuff.
We carefully chose the best-of-the-best. We do include a few truly spectacular celebrity living rooms.
Solarium Style Living Room
First up in our epic luxury living rooms gallery is a large solarium style living room from famed boxer Floyd Mayweather. I love all the off-white against the rich, dark wood flooring. The series of french doors leading to the grounds adds texture to the walls and of course the floor-to-ceiling glass doors lets in plenty of light. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
3 Living Rooms-in-One
LeBron James needs a big house. Well, he has it, but not only is it big, but it’s stunning throughout all 23,000 sq. ft. I love the massive living room space which opens up to yet another living room area on the patio. I also like the mix of black and white furniture used in the long living room gallery.

Ellen Degeneres is famous for being a comedian and TV talk show host, but she’s also known for buying and renovating homes. Below is the awesome living room in a Tuscan Villa she bought and renovated. This luxury living room has awesome aged ceiling beams, stone wall and fireplace, tile flooring and very cool contemporary furniture that nicely juxtaposes the aged stonework and ceiling timbers.

Floyd’s mansion is epic. Here’s another living room from his home that is off-the-charts unique. It’s very masculine with dart built-in cabinetry, furniture, flooring all contrasted with a large white area rug. Very cool. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
Rustic Great Hall
The living room below is more like a rustic great hall equal in size to many great halls found in castles. It’s totally awesome. Guess which celeb owns this beauty? Miley Cyrus. She’s loaded and it’s not from her celebrity country singer dad. Miley is a mega star. Look at that soaring ceiling, stone fireplace, rustic furniture, wide-plank flooring and killer chandelier. This is one cool living room. See the entire house here. Photo courtesy of Zillow Celebrity Homes.
Not opulent. Not grand. But it’s sure nice. Below is Jane Fonda’s living room in her newish home. I love the long sofas, large glass table, wood tray ceiling and white walls in this living room. It’s perfect. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
Gallery-Style Living Room
I love how this living room flows off the hall via archways. It’s a very nice flow, yet the living room is cozy and comfortable. You can see this living room space is nicely decked out with a full bar, large fireplace, chandelier, side-sitting area, tall ceilings and dark wood floor. This is the living room in Britney Spears’ former home. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
Below is the massive great room space in Britney Spears’ former mansion. Look at those beams and the overall size of the space. It’s like an airport hangar. Yes, below is a different room than the living room space above.
Oops, she did it again. Below is Brtiney Spears’ living room in her new mansion which is gargantuan and totally over-the-top. The formal living room is totally decked out with french doors, chandelier, fireplace, two facing traditional sofas and tray ceiling. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
Palatial Grand Salon
Check this mega living room out. It’s a ballroom with two living room spaces flanked by upper landings. This living room must be at least 3,000 sq. ft. (our entire house). It features two separate siting areas; one with mega white leather sectional and the other a more formal space. Each has a fireplace. There’s enough room in between to enjoy a game of floor hockey. Guess which celeb couple lives here? Jay-Z and Beyonce. Photo courtesy of Trulia.
Outdoor / Indoor Living Room
Okay, okay, I know you’re thinking that this is a patio. It is, but it’s really indoor/outdoor living space and this patio living room is one of my all-time favorites so I wanted to include it here. It’s designed by SAOTA, one of my architecture firms. You can see the entire villa here.
This living room doesn’t get any better for a beachside mansion. It’s airy, has loads of light from floor-to-ceiligng windows and opens into dining area and kitchen. This spectacular space and home was designed by Hughes Umbanhowar Architects. See entire home here.
Check this amazing two-story living room out in a craftsman style home. It’s comfortable and luxurious. It’s a very popular living room image on our site for good reason. See the entire home here. Source: Architectural Designs.
