Exposed beams in a living room. While it‘s normal to see a fair bit of color in traditional living rooms, an all neutral space like this one is more than acceptable. And while a lot of frills and details are also often found in traditional rooms, they are not mandatory. This room, designed by Markalunas Architecture Group, is more demure than most traditional spaces, but still fits in thanks to the architecture, materials, and symmetrical furniture arrangements.
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.
But she’s an equally avid supporter of visual arts including those with a modern bent. The living room’s lavender pod chandelier adds an edgy layer of complexity to the room’s design, making it as interesting as it is elegant.
