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.
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”).
Sand plus sea–glass cozy beach style. Sandy colors of light beige create this beachy living–room ooze comfort. Notice how the rug and walls plus couch also coffee table are all tones of the same hue, generating a ´soft‐harmony´. ´Contrasting’ sea green plus white components are added in the form of throw‐pillows also wall‐art set upon a ornamental ledge. A gray pad with picture frame lend a pacifying calm to the space.
Enlightened comfort "Old Hollywood" style. Pastel shades of blue and linen also white grace this living–room in a stylish commendation to "Old Hollywood". The secret to 'Old Hollywood' manner is in the opulent details: tufted furniture with nail head trim and ´velvet pillows´ plus mirrored end‐tables with a white shag rug also metallic‐accents. But how to keep a pastel living–room from ´feeling’ too chilly also formal? Warm it up together with a prosperous espresso floor plus `fawn walls´.
