Traditional Living Room
This traditional living room has good bones!
The large bay window dressed in white shutters provides the perfect background for a balanced furniture arrangement. The fabrics on the sofa, the side chairs and the large throw pillows complement each other nicely.
The issue with this room is not only the awkward furniture arrangement but the wall color, perfectly matched to the sofa, causes the sofa to blend into the walls to the point of disappearing.
The area rug was taken from the family room where it conveyed too formal a feel but its perfect here. It serves to anchor the seating arrangement and adds a finishing touch to this lovely living room! Fast forward several months later, after the interior redesign. We have replaced the carpet and painted the walls a soft mellow golden tone picked right out of the fabrics. Wow, what a difference. Click on the image below to view the transformation in full size.
