New traditional living room. "New Traditional" is a style that has evolved out of classic traditional style rooms. Many of the rules still apply, but everything is just a little bit sleeker. Furniture is slightly more contemporary, window treatments are cleaner and free of pleats or frills, and fabrics are largely solid and neutral. For people who like the idea of traditional living rooms but want something a little more current, a new traditional room like this one designed by Highgate House is the way to go.
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.
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.
Swathed in grass‐cloth, paint isn`t the only way to pervade walls with a hit of blue. In this New Traditional space a blue grass‐cloth wall‐covering was utilized to wrap the space in color. Dramatic table lamps also hits of orange magnify the color plus make for a dynamic area.
