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”).
A polished palette. The large living room in this DC Design House (Washington, D.C.) exudes elegance with a deftly played palette that keeps all parts of the space in harmony. A tasteful mix of icy blue, ivory, yellow, white, and khaki creates the polished look.
Minimize technology, A common design dilemma in traditional rooms is how to incorporate modern technology like televisions. In this case the TV was placed above the fireplace in order to create a column effect and streamline the focal point, thus minimizing the impact of the television. In traditional spaces the more you can hide technology the better.
