What Houzz contributors are saying:

Use patterns to emphasize scale: The luxury of large rooms is their ability to absorb pattern and color. Here, Gambrel mixes just the right amount of patterned and solid pieces to create a harmonious yet interesting composition. The black and white patterned drapes draw the eye upward to the dramatic vaulted ceiling.Tip: The vaulted ceiling was not an original feature of this room. To get the effect he wanted, he opened up the lowered ceiling, painted it with semi-reflective paint and installed the softly luminous mother-of-pearl lanterns.
Nothing fills space like a grand piano! In addition to being long and narrow, this living room also has a high ceiling. The hanging lights do a nice job of lowering the ceiling's perceived height, so the space doesn't feel so daunting.
