High ceiling living room. Traditional rooms don't speak to any specific age group. A room like this one by Mosaic Architects could belong to a family or couple, young or old. There's a familiarity to it which is inherently comfortable, but it is definitely not old or dated.
Sophisticated living room, traditional design can be tricky, because if you use the wrong finishes it can quickly look dated. The main finishes to avoid are polished brass (too 80's) and chrome (too contemporary). Instead look for more muted metals that have a nice patina like the ones used in this traditional living room from Dayna Kaitlin Interiors. Think oil rubbed bronze and ever so slightly tarnished silver.
Sterling design, Dove gray and attention to detail create serene sophistication in the living room of this Connecticut home overlooking Long Island Sound. “I didn’t want a beachy home so we went with dark floors and classic details,” says the owner, architectural designer Louise Brooks.
