Sophisticated living room, traditional design can be tricky, because if you use the wrong finishes it can quickly look dated. The main finishes to avoid are polished brass (too 80's) and chrome (too contemporary). Instead look for more muted metals that have a nice patina like the ones used in this traditional living room from Dayna Kaitlin Interiors. Think oil rubbed bronze and ever so slightly tarnished silver.
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.
Minimize technology, A common design dilemma in traditional rooms is how to incorporate modern technology like televisions. In this case the TV was placed above the fireplace in order to create a column effect and streamline the focal point, thus minimizing the impact of the television. In traditional spaces the more you can hide technology the better.
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.
Have–you–ever 'wondered' why some living‐rooms look snug also ’inviting’ while‐others‐seem to fall–flat or simply look incomplete? I´ll let you in on a scheme secret: it‘s the tones. Appending harmonious shades to your hue design not only adds diversity also depth but feelings of calm plus peace. They are the tones that can take your living―room from "okay" to "fabulous"!
