Elegance with an edge. So can a living room be elegant and edgy all at once? The Honolulu home of designer Marion Philpotts Miller suggests the answer is yes. Certain stately furnishings like a grand piano are fixtures of finery, and music-loving Miller is a fan.
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.
Panelled walls, Nothing says traditional like a room with mahogany or cherry panelled walls. Different from the cheap veneer paneling popular in the 1970’s, the solid wood, rich color and detailed millwork, like in this room from PFA Design Group, is a hallmark of traditional style.
Totally conventional, the wall color is only one of the blue components in this traditional living‐room. The furniture and rug also artwork plus appendages all use various shades of both light together with darker blue to tell their spiels. In order to generate a easier look make sure there`s a complimentary accent tone used liberally throughout also consider symmetry when placing furniture with accessories.
