Today I've got some living room design sketches for you.
I have to say, despite my personal funky-eclectic taste, this sort of "fresh traditional" scheme is a real comfort zone for me, and I love to use it in older homes. My approach in this case was to choose pieces whose lines felt traditional but not overly fussy or formal, and fabrics that feel young enough for the family that lives here. The color palette comes in part from other choices we've made, like the tones in the wallpaper in the entry.
The living room opens to the right off of this foyer, with the dining room directly across the way.
I wanted to pull in the brown, coral, and blue in different combinations
The client and I are both loving the first option.
What do you think?
