The Most Jaw-Dropping Living Room Makeovers You've Ever Seen
As a prime space for relaxing and entertaining, your living room should accurately convey your home’s style and personality. Drab colours, dated furniture, and bland accessories can stand in the way of a stylish and functional space.

A stuffy, formal space is transformed into a colourful, family-friendly area in this home, designed by Amber Lewis. A symmetrical furniture arrangement aligned with the fireplace gives the room some eye-pleasing balance.
Opening up a wall and creating an open-concept living room and kitchen make this home feel vastly larger than before. A textured ceiling and feature wall behind the fireplace give the room dimension despite the mainly white colour palette.
Neutral, simple furniture helps this sunken living room feel classic and timeless. Modern lounge chairs were replaced with a traditional English saddle-arm sofa to give the design longevity. Art arranged in an eclectic gallery-wall setting add colour and interest to the room, and can be easily rearranged if the homeowners tires of the look.
Designer Nicole Gibbons gave her own New York living room an upgrade thanks to a mix of modern art and colourful accents. Reupholstering pieces, swapping out art and accessories, and adding new lighting freshen up the traditional scape.
