Seafoam green living room. Color is not uncommon in traditional living rooms, but as a general rule the colors are somewhat muted and don´t make a show of themselves, as demonstrated in this room by Walish & Stambaugh.
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.
Sophisticated living room, traditional design can be tricky, because if you use the wrong finishes it can quickly look dated. The main finishes to avoid are polished brass (too 80's) and chrome (too contemporary). Instead look for more muted metals that have a nice patina like the ones used in this traditional living room from Dayna Kaitlin Interiors. Think oil rubbed bronze and ever so slightly tarnished silver.
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.
