A home’s living room
serves so many purposes, from being an entertaining hub to a relaxing oasis after a long day—so naturally, it should be full of personality. Now, whether that’s minimalist chic or Scandi-inspired calm, we don’t judge. In fact, our favorite living rooms of the year encompass all styles, from bright wallpaper
and girly millennial pink
to eclectic and whimsical
—and we found something to inspire us in each and every one of them.
Ahead, check out our favorite living rooms of the year, and maybe find a new design style you can take with you into 2018.
Usually when people are faced with high ceilings, they use large, big furniture to take up more space—but that’s not the case in this San Francisco home
. Instead, the homeowners chose to play up that aspect with a low sofa, sleek white walls, and a towering, glamorous light fixture. Loose, casual, and a perfect mix of modern and classic, this living room proves you can play with moods and still have some fun.
