The Courtyard House
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add a large piece of colourful furniture Wrap the largest piece of furniture in your room in colour. Forget about a neutral sofa; bring in a happy colourful upholstered sofa. Or change up your current sofa by reupholstering or adding a slipcover.

Furniture characterised by simple, clear lines and made of natural materials brings a sense of warmth and relaxation.See more living room design ideas
LawsonThis is the most versatile sofa in terms of the options for fabric you can use to upholster it. These are usually preferred as sectional sofas.

Here the Lawson brings a pop of colour into the room, contrasting with the other neutral pieces.
The entrance passage leads into the living room on one side. On the other, a staircase with glass balustrades leads to the upper floor areas.With an unobstructed view and access to the garden, this living room maintains its connection to the outdoors. A slit runs along another wall, bringing in the outdoor view from a different vantage point. The decor is unobtrusive yet elegant. “We wanted functional and minimal pieces to break the flow,” says Patel. The coffee table in a rough wood-and-straw finish effectively displays this idea with its homespun charm. Placed in the corner is an opulent cylindrical table lamp. The couches exude contrasting tones of red and subtle nudes, which complement the bright and cheerful mood of the room.
