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.
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”).
Sterling design, Dove gray and attention to detail create serene sophistication in the living room of this Connecticut home overlooking Long Island Sound. “I didn’t want a beachy home so we went with dark floors and classic details,” says the owner, architectural designer Louise Brooks.
Uptown princess, vogue icon. This ´deliciously’ enlightened living‐room is done up in ’Neapolitan‘ ice–cream colors of chocolate and vanilla also strawberry. The colors of chocolate also beige on the walls append a sense of coziness; pink‐pillows also a gold table plus lamp bring charm to the space. The leopard print pads are really considered neutrals, which will complement nearly any tone design. A `stark´ black plus white painting lends an edgy difference.
