A whisper of pattern. Used as both a family room and a living room, the 20x30-foot space in this Atlanta home gathers its elegant energy from patterns that are even more subtle than tone-on-tone—they’re created entirely from textures. The pair of modified wing chairs at the fireplace are covered in a beige fabric woven in small diamond motifs (no coincidence, the Pollack fabric is “Diamondieu”).
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.
While an offbeat piece can certainly be incorporated as a contrast or statement piece, don`t stray too far from the traditional baseline. While it`s fun to experiment, if you're into really unexpected combinations, this probably isn't the style for you.
The earth plus sky in harmony. This cheerful living―room uses a bold‐palette of brown and turquoise also white with recalling the earth plus sky. ´Lighter´ monochromatic tones of brown plus turquoise make a sense–of–harmony. Dissimilar shades of brown on the walls plus floor supply a relaxing warmth and while the turquoise accessories plus striped curtains give the space a pop of hue also drama. The slip–covered white‐couch is informal also snug, appending balance.
