With a color palette inspired by the calming hues of the ocean, Megan Pisano's vision for the space was to create an atmosphere that was both comfortable and stylish.
"Bathed in a serene ocean blue, the living room is perfectly suited for everything from a family movie night to a cocktail party," says Pisano, whose expert use of color and texture helps to create a harmonious and inviting environment that can adapt to the various needs of the homeowners.

At the heart of the living room is a versatile and family-friendly sectional sofa, accompanied by a coordinating ottoman. The choice of furniture not only provides ample seating for gatherings but also allows for a comfortable lounging experience during quieter moments at home. The sectional and ottoman are upholstered in a soft, durable fabric that is as stylish as it is practical for families with young children or pets.
To add a touch of elegance and warmth to the space, Pisano selected floor-length drapes that frame the room's large windows. The drapes serve as both a practical and aesthetic element, helping to filter light and create a sense of intimacy in the open room. They also contribute to the room's overall color scheme, echoing the serene ocean blue of the walls and creating a cohesive visual experience.
Pisano's attention to detail is evident in her choice of accent pieces, which serve to punctuate the light and airy atmosphere of the living room. A modern brown leather armchair, strategically placed in the corner of the room, serves as the perfect spot to unwind after a long day. Its rich color and contemporary design add an element of sophistication to the space without compromising the overall sense of comfort.
This ocean-inspired living room proves that it is possible to create a space that is equally suitable for family bonding and elegant entertaining. With its soothing color palette, versatile furnishings, and carefully chosen accents, this living room serves as a shining example of what can be achieved when the needs of the homeowners are at the forefront of the design process.
