Light blue living room. Traditional style is often associated with grand spaces, but there‘s no reason why a smaller space can‘t be decorated in an elegant, traditional way. This room has very high ceilings but not a lot of floor space, so designer Amanda Carol substituted a coffee table for two stools, used large scale art to balance out the window, and incorporated tall millwork over the mantel to draw the eye upwards. The result is a somewhat small space that appears much grander than it really is.
Antique living room, while some say that the majority of floral fabrics went out with the 80s, fans of this old-world style know that they’ll always have a place in traditional rooms. When combined with other traditional items like Chinoiserie antiques and large scale gilt mirrors, floral fabrics can truly shine, as evidenced in this classic living room by J. Stephens Interiors.
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”).
