The client’s inspirational gallery was, expectedly, filled with examples of inviting living rooms where a cushion-adorned sectional sofa also served as a focal point. Transitional interior design ideas reigned supreme with a balance of modern decor and traditional accents. Calming neutral color palettes stole the show with only the slightest pops of color present. Overall, the room selections were refined while still radiating welcoming vibes.

This living room makeover began with a quick and easy questionnaire and detailed consultation. Then, the expert Decorilla team matched the client with two designers who could bring their vision to life. Both creatives concocted personalized moodboards to showcase their ideas for giving a double-height living room new life. Opting for just one design was not easy, but finally, Casey H.’s gorgeous blend of bright, breezy transitional accents and charming rustic elements captured the client’s heart.

Casey’s double-height living room design was a stunning combination of rustic and modern touches, bringing the space to new altitudes of functional beauty. The design scheme thrived on natural textures, rugged wooden touches, and silky-soft, neutral fabrics that soothe and inspire. In addition, the color combo harmonized hushed tones such as beige and gray. The plump, inviting seating also blended contemporary lines with timeless comfort lending the perfect transitional touch.

The harmonious balance of this room is the first impression that strikes the viewer. Its double-height ceiling and open approach put the sophisticated lounging area on display from different angles. Meanwhile, the interplay between rustic decor elements and modern components, such as the contemporary chandelier, creates a rhythmic visual tension. It turns the entire space into a focal point straight from the house entrance as a result.

A welcoming double-height living room ambiance comprises ample seating with a decorative splash of bold patterns and sleek black accents. Elaborate touches include textured accent pillows, ethnic-inspired ottomans, and leather lounging chairs. A variety of textures and patterns makes for a real sensory feast, brought further and simultaneously grounded by a soft, boldly graphic area rug. In the meantime, the painting over a fireplace and a maintenance-free faux plant soften the rigid scheme with a subtle pop of freshness and color.

Incorporating a striking white floor-to-ceiling wainscoting virtually and literally elevates this living space to new heights. Not only does it make a bold focal point, but it also infuses a sense of depth and texture. Finished off with a series of large-scale black frames of a personalized gallery wall, the final effect is nothing short of impressive. As a result, such a solution turns a bland white wall into the key visual statement of the entire house.
