Warm colors in a living room, one of the hallmarks of traditional style is symmetry. While rooms aren't always made up of perfect mirror images, they are usually very well-balanced, both in terms of furniture and architecture. Notice in this traditional living room by Cameron Mobley Interior Design that although the armchairs are completely different from one another, they consist of a similar visual weight, balancing each other out and maintaining the symmetry of the space.
Light blue living room. Traditional style is often associated with grand spaces, but there‘s no reason why a smaller space can‘t be decorated in an elegant, traditional way. This room has very high ceilings but not a lot of floor space, so designer Amanda Carol substituted a coffee table for two stools, used large scale art to balance out the window, and incorporated tall millwork over the mantel to draw the eye upwards. The result is a somewhat small space that appears much grander than it really is.
Built-in bookcases. Built-in bookcases are an ideal storage solution for traditional living rooms. To make sure the look doesn’t veer into contemporary territory, consider adding some decorative moulding around the perimeter, picture lights at the top, and be sure to use traditional hardware on cabinet doors. A simple design like this one courtesy of Nastasi Vail Design is ideal.
