Living Room Pinspirations!

Here are a few images I've collected for inspiration for our new living room plans (see this post on the layout options I'm considering).  Not only are these images of living rooms that in some way, shape, or form mirror the fixed elements in my living room (hence their help in the layout-planning process), but also, I'm drawn to their general design aesthetic.

In this picture, I love the neutral tones, the light-colored rug and the striped curtains.

The beige sectional, fun pillows and bold rug are my favorites in this room.  I also love how two arm chairs flank the sectional for extra seating.

I like the darker furniture in this room, as well as the generally monochromatic tone of the room with just a strong pop of color in the rug.

I love the layered sisal/cowhide look in this picture (as you can also see in the layout plans - though Esposito hates it!) and also the mix of furniture fabrics - I could easily recreate this look and have both the leather and slipcovered pieces that I like!

This room manages to be neutral and fun, which I love.  The bold rug, textured couch and print on the arm chairs work so well together.  And I love seeing a TV over the fireplace since, even though it's sometimes considered a design don't, for many of our houses there just isn't another viable option.

I love this room because it looks so cozy.  Though all the furniture is brown leather, it doesn't seem to overwhelm the room (at least not from this angle).  Plus those paned mirrors flanking the fireplace are a great idea for those of us without windows in that location.

I may have posted this room before, but I absolutely love it!  The white slipcovered couch, grounded with dark floors and dark pillows, and paired with a dark armchair.  Plus I'm a sucker for a cowhide!

I may have posted this room before as well, but I love that despite the main furniture piece being a large sectional, there was still the thought of adding separate arm chairs for additional seating.  I also love the look of patterned curtains and the pops of yellow in the pillows and art.

This room reminds me of my living room a lot and really got me thinking about the sectional option seriously.  Here you see the paned mirrors flanking the fireplace again (must try!), the tv over the mantle, a sectional and armchair.  Esposito is definitely leaning towards this option - I'm not yet convinced but this image certainly helps!

Another sectional paired with a (cowhide!) chaise!  I love the neutral color scheme, the paneling and the white-on-white framed art.

Which room do you like best?
