Elegance with an edge. So can a living room be elegant and edgy all at once? The Honolulu home of designer Marion Philpotts Miller suggests the answer is yes. Certain stately furnishings like a grand piano are fixtures of finery, and music-loving Miller is a fan.
This means no jewel tones, and certainly nothing overly bright or neon. Reds, blues, greens and yellows are right at home, as are every possible shade of white, taupe, beige and gray.
Stone fireplace in a living room, A giant stone fireplace is the perfect starting point for a comfortable, traditionally decorated living room. Since traditional rooms rely on balance and symmetry, having such a distinct focal point to arrange furniture around is ideal. Designer Kim Regas used muted neutrals, soft textiles and inviting furniture to create a feeling of relaxed elegance.

The hue palette is very easy: an ivory carpet plus couch and taupe tables also walls with purple accessories. However, the three different shades of purple shown in the throw pillows and art also drapes with lamps "finish‐ the space also turning it into a more composite plus harmonious area.
