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”).
This means no jewel tones, and certainly nothing overly bright or neon. Reds, blues, greens and yellows are right at home, as are every possible shade of white, taupe, beige and gray.
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.
Windy beach style. Creator Sabrina Alfin make a breezy beach‐style retreat by marrying watery blues and sandy neutrals in this San Fransisco Bay space home. Slip‐covered furniture helps lend the area a relaxed also informal vibe, while natural decoration such as a jute rug and wicker baskets plus driftwood cadence help bring the ´beach` theme home.
