Spring Lake- Living Room

A crisp and consistent color scheme and composition creates an airy, unified mood throughout the diminutive 13' x 13' living room. Dark hardwood floors add warmth and contrast. We added thick moldings to architecturally enhance the house.

Gauzy cotton Roman shades dress new hurricane-proof windows and coax additional natural light into the home. Because of their versatility, pairs of furniture instead of single larger pieces are used throughout the home. This helps solve the space problem because these smaller pieces can be moved and stored easily.

Have you ever thought about using Turkish-T products? - I think the color scheme of the Turkish-T towels and blankets looks a lot like your style. I would love to see how you can incorporate it. I am looking for some ways to style them!

The living room is 13' x 13'9". The key to success in a small room is proper proportion. Thank you.

The walls and the fireplace are the same color, Benjamin Moore- Decorator White- 01. The walls are matte and the fireplace and trim are in semi gloss.

It's semi gloss like the trim and moldings and it's holding up beautifully.

Window treatments - Love your style? I have a big historic house in Western PA and installed wooden blinds throughout the first floor about 10 years ago. I still love them but would love to soften the LR up a bit with a window treatment. What might you suggest?

If you are planning to keep the wooden blinds then I definitely agree with the decorative drapery. If you are looking to replace them Pirouettes or SIlhouettes are soft and absolutely stunning.

The sofas and all the fabrics are from Kravet Furniture. The finishes and the upholstery are always perfect. The fabrics are Sunbrella and they work really well in this beach house. Good luck.

Nail trim can be tricky. I always have it installed by the upholsterer. If it's not done well it can look tacky.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: Rich used lots of small-space tricks to make the living room look and feel larger. A light color palette, larger windows and gauzy Roman shades keeps things light and bright. "Because of their versatility and symmetry, using pairs of furniture instead of single larger pieces solved the space problem," says Rich. She created architectural interest by adding thick crown, base and trim moldings. "Painting the trim and walls the same shade of white helps things blend and look larger," she says. "We painted the trim in semigloss to give just the subtlest contrast to the walls." She adds, "We also used the same hardwood floors throughout the house to add contrast, warmth and continuity throughout the first floor."
Laura Gaskill added this to Decorate With Intention: Finish That Room!
Roadblock 4: An all-neutral scheme feels boring. I count myself among the legions of people who adore neutral or all-white color schemes, because they seem so foolproof — and they are. But sometimes all of that beige and cream begins to feel a little too predictable. If you are ready to shake things up a bit, first take a moment to consider what it is exactly that is bothering you about the room now.Do you like the neutral hues but want more of a wow factor? A single special piece, like an oversize mirror with an interesting shape or a piece of art you love, could be all you need to add. Or try adding accessories with metallic shimmer. Platinum, gold or silver will add a rich, luxurious quality that elevates the neutrals around it.
Negative but misinformed experiences with colors — bold or neutral — can have an effect as well. For those who tend to stick to neutrals, adding a big pop of color somewhere random probably won't feel right. "You might think that you made a color mistake," says Harrington. "But you didn't. Live with it first and add more color."
