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.
Then look inside the fireplace. The brick firebox is laid in a herringbone pattern. Subtle. The fauteuil facing the fireplace is a taupe velvet cut to create a 3D swirl pattern. And both the sofa and the club chair opposite it play the texture game with their small-weave diamonds. With the exception of the decorative pillows, the only non-textured pattern is at the windows. A tone-on-tone. Quiet. Elegant.
Farrow & Ball’s “Skimming Stone” is painted on the walls, while the wood comes clean in the venerable paint company’s “All White.” Silver-gray cocktail and side tables pick up the thread of color from the room’s gray-and-white striped Elizabeth Eakins rug, while the furniture remains calm in white upholstery fabrics. Even the accessories on the fireplace wall’s shelves are pared down for importance. Most notable is the pair of antique lanterns on the middle shelves.
Clarify your own‐style. Increasingly `style´ is becoming more a 'personal' option than an industry defined ‘parameter‘ in contemporary homes. Also 2018 will see an expansion of this in the living–room together with both local‐designers also householder coming together to generate a ´personalized` look that fuses two or three improbable, "individual‐styles".
That clearly means retaining an eye out for those `styles` and tones also furniture and accessories which will create the largest influence in the next 12 months. Plus today, we are going to take a look at ´trends’ that will form living‐rooms across‐the‐globe in the year ahead.
