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.
Dramatic window treatments. To really bring home the traditional style, make sure to include dramatic floor-to-ceiling window treatments like the ones in this room decorated by Salvesen Graham. They can be pleated or not, have valances or not, and use tiebacks or not - but make sure they go all the way from the floor to the ceiling in order to get the full effect.
Lovely and light living room. Making the right decorating decision sometimes means doing nothing at all. When a living room like the one in this East Hampton house is blessed with beautiful French doors and an abundance of light, a smart designer knows to leave well enough alone: Keep the windows undressed. Designer Larry Laslo did just that. He also enhanced the architecture’s airiness with a monochromatic palette of soft pearl and sand with dark wood accents.
Golden touch. If a tasteful look is desired, try appending some gold accents to a green space. Gold has a way of appending a lux factor to every manner of space and a conventional area like this room created by Tobi Fairley is no exception. The gold mirror is the focal spike of the space yet it helps draw out some of the prosperous green colors in the fabrics also attachments.
Tone‐on‐tone. A tone–on–tone space isn't for everyone, particularly when it's such a strong color. But for green devotee an area like this is a `dream` come true! In this type of single‐color space be sure to comprise some sort of focal point so the eye has a place to relax in the sea of color.
