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.
Seafoam green living room. Color is not uncommon in traditional living rooms, but as a general rule the colors are somewhat muted and don´t make a show of themselves, as demonstrated in this room by Walish & Stambaugh.
Built-in bookcases. Built-in bookcases are an ideal storage solution for traditional living rooms. To make sure the look doesn’t veer into contemporary territory, consider adding some decorative moulding around the perimeter, picture lights at the top, and be sure to use traditional hardware on cabinet doors. A simple design like this one courtesy of Nastasi Vail Design is ideal.
