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.

Whether it´s the arms of a sofa or chair, a demi lune table, or a carved console, there´s a softness to furniture that gives traditional rooms an aura of relaxation. In this room from Stratus Group, you can see it in the seating, the light fixtures and the clock.
