The tricky thing about living room design is that it needs to suit all your own personal quirks while also being welcoming to friends and family. In the modern trend of open floor plans, the living room also has to mesh well with the surrounding rooms while still managing to set itself apart. Overall, living room is much more than a sofa and a television: it's a place where you should feel safe and happy. Where a nap is easy and sometimes getting up is a little hard. Each of these 20 living rooms has its own distinct personality, but all manage to create an amazing space where anyone would be lucky to kick up her feet and spend a few hours.

This robot is a fun DIY project and just so happens to work as a versatile toilet paper holder too. Made from verified eco-friendly basswood, the pieces are easy to assemble – and when you're done you can reposition the arms and hands or even make the robot hold items. It looks great unpainted but can be spruced up to match your bathroom with ease. The design is based on the Chinese character jiong, often used as an emoticon online.
The Container Store’s Clear Shelf Divider is a clever way to keep sweaters, jeans and other items neatly stacked on your closet shelves. It serves double duty, thanks to a built-in valet hook for hanging items.
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
This ultra modern living room uses its clean lines to create an overwhelming atmosphere that is clean and serene. The round columns in this living room divide the room and give an otherwise industrial apartment a bit of a romantic spin. In this smaller living room, the white color scheme makes things feel more open.
Bathrooms lend themselves to personalization due to the function they serve. A bathroom should be a place where an individual, alone and at rest, feels completely comfortable, content and calm, no matter what image the greater space endeavors to project.

Because dark colors can make a room feel more closed in than welcoming, they only work in a living room like this that has plenty of natural light. The contrast in the wood flooring helps, too. For a creative answer to the standard sofa, this urban living room uses upholstered platforms and movable pillows that allow whoever is sitting to create their own comfortable posture on the platforms or the floor. On the other end of the spectrum we have this light wood and white living room. It's on the small side but plenty big for a cozy night at home.
Finding the right pillow — as well as sleeping on the wrong one — can be a real pain in the neck. Ironically, choosing your perfect pillow can force you to sacrifice precious sleep as you peruse the far reaches of the internet in the night in search of the right one (we've all been there).
