A Well Divided Living Room

In the living room, separate spots for TV and entertaining are defined by two types of shag carpet bound as rugs. "I wanted a soft, contemporary look—not country chic, which can be fussy, and not super modern, which can be cold," says Llewellyn. A console table set off by bright artwork acts as the dividing line. The dining room, glimpsed through a doorway, plays off the same palette.

A bright triptych balances the strong symmetry of a console table flanked by matching chairs.
