Striped Traditional Living Room

Instead of using wall paper, the designer chose paint to detail this traditional living room. Colors inspired by the upholstery fabrics like marigold and yellow were used to create the wide wall stripes. Blues and reds in the floor coverings and seating brings depth to the room.

My living room has very similar colors and I am having a tough time finding an area rug. Where did you find the red rug in this room. It is new or antique.

Who manufactures the panel molding on the ceiling and where can I buy?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This great large ottoman can serve as additional seating in the center of this living space. That's a great way to go if you enjoy the round shape but don't have room for a full round sofa.

this very traditional and regal living room, blue and navy are mingled with red, and accented with variations of the palate. The striped gold wallpaper draws attention to the mirrors, chandelier, and curtain hardware while also providing a bright background to the heavier colors and shapes throughout the room.

The simple use of alternating painted stripes adds visual impact to this room. The clean lines give the appearance of wall paper.
Margaret Everton added this to Same Song Second Verse: Symmetry That Works
September 6, 2009
As elegantly seen here, symmetry need not mean spartan or office-space-ish. The many details of this sitting room are kept from chaos by the fireplace and the ottoman, which create centers to work outward from.
