A polished palette. The large living room in this DC Design House (Washington, D.C.) exudes elegance with a deftly played palette that keeps all parts of the space in harmony. A tasteful mix of icy blue, ivory, yellow, white, and khaki creates the polished look.
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.
Whether it´s the arms of a sofa or chair, a demi lune table, or a carved console, there´s a softness to furniture that gives traditional rooms an aura of relaxation. In this room from Stratus Group, you can see it in the seating, the light fixtures and the clock.
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"!
