10 Wonderful Living Rooms with White Sofas

One of the most important pieces of furniture in a living room is the sofa, and one of the most classic choices is a white sofa. It may not seem practical at first glance but from a design standpoint, a white sofa is the most versatile you can choose.

Besides all the different options for white sofas in terms of shape and style, you can also transform it with the decor you choose to put around it. Pillows, throws, and other pieces can completely change the way the sofa looks. Plus, when you get tired of the decor, it’s so easy to change the smaller things without having to switch out your biggest investment, which is the sofa itself.

If you are worried about durability, slipcovers are a great compromise. You still get the chic look of a white sofa, but you can throw it in the washing machine whenever you want to freshen it up.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of living rooms with a white sofa to give you some ideas.

10 Charming Courtyard Patio and Garden Ideas

I love a courtyard in a home. You don’t see them often, but when you do, they always feel like a little special find that gives the house some extra character. A courtyard is an outdoor area that is surrounded by the walls of a building. This makes a courtyard one of the most private options for an outdoor space and definitely one of the most unique.

Courtyard homes have been rising in popularity for this reason, but they can still be considered rare compared to traditional layouts. They are also great if you have a small lot or if the view from the back of your home isn’t particularly pleasing. Since the courtyard is enclosed by other rooms in the home or high walls, no one can see in so the privacy aspect is wonderful. (Unless you have a two-story neighbor next door.)

Above all, they are incredibly charming and offer some interesting opportunities for decor and landscaping. Here are 10 inspiring examples of courtyard patios and gardens to give you some ideas.

Home Tour: Tommy Hilfiger’s Artistic Home in Miami

When you think of a fashion designer, you think of someone who knows style and thinks outside the box. That can definitely be said of designer Tommy Hilfiger, who brought those same concepts to the home he shares with his wife and family in Miami, Florida. The two wanted a home that could house their large collection of vibrant artwork that didn’t suit their other properties while also capturing the unique spirit of Miami itself.

They definitely succeeded.

The home is an incredible 14,000 square foot residence that is a work of art all on its own. Every room tells its own story through dramatic colors and patterns. It’s clear that the home was built around the art, but in doing so, they managed to create yet another visual feast.

Enjoy this fun and creative home tour courtesy of Architectural Digest.

10 Clearly Stylish Lucite Console Tables

Lucite (also called acrylic or ghost) furniture is a big trend in decorating right now. It rose to popularity because of its ability to “disappear” into the decor, making it an especially great choice for small spaces and awkward spots.

Because it is completely clear, light passes right through lucite furniture, which is visually weightless to keep a space feeling open and airy.

Of all the furniture available in lucite, a lucite console table is one of the most versatile and useful. It’s a lifesaver in small, narrow spots like entryways and hallways, but it can also be used in a variety of other places. If you need a surface but don’t want to take up much visual room, a lucite console table could be the perfect solution.

Here are 10 examples of lucite console tables that show the brilliance of its design.
