Living Room

Our clients wanted a serene and comfortable, yet formal living room. Symmetry is a wonderful way to create a very balanced, and consequently, soothing space. A pair of transitional camel-back sofas flank the fireplace, and extend an invitation to sit around the fire. Other “pairs” of draperies, chairs, and ottomans around the room create order and “organize” the space, all while giving it a slightly formal feel. We selected the mostly monochromatic color palate for its restful quality…color can be jarring. To bring back some excitement, we went against the grain by painting the trim and molding a very dark chocolate brown. We know this room is a success, because unlike most living rooms, it’s used every day. Photo by Beth Singer.

Hello. The coffee table is semi-custom; the bronze frame is from Baker, but we removed the original stone top, and had our upholsterer make a new top using a crocodile embossed leather. Best regards, Charles Dunlap

Love this room! - There is so much to love in this room. First, I am a fan of monochromatic rooms and agree that color can be jarring. I think you pulled off the formal look but have a very comfortable and inviting room. I want to try the same. I already of the couches and rug but I think that coffee table would be perfect in my room. Do you know where I could find a table like that?

Wow--Thank you so much for your kind words! The coffee table is semi-custom; the bronze frame is from Baker, but we removed the original stone top, and had our upholsterer make a new top using a crocodile embossed leather. Best regards, Charles Dunlap

Try Valspar's Bridge for a similar wall color, and Valspar's Cracked Pepper for a similar trim color.
