Panelled walls, Nothing says traditional like a room with mahogany or cherry panelled walls. Different from the cheap veneer paneling popular in the 1970’s, the solid wood, rich color and detailed millwork, like in this room from PFA Design Group, is a hallmark of traditional style.
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.
Shades of blue in the living room. Just because a room is traditional it doesn´t mean it can´t still have one or two modern pieces. A mid century modern sputnik chandelier is the perfect addition to this traditional living room from VV Design. It creates contrast and adds an element of urban cool to this elegant space.
