Thank you so much for responding. I had never considered a yellow color until I saw this room. I am contemporary trying to become more transitional. Your color on color moulding was inspirational!!!

I'm so glad you love it. It is a French Antique that was shipping in pieces and re-assembled in the clients home.

@housegroupie and @notmanmaine what would be your solution!
The room is to large to have smaller scaled millwork. The ceilings are 12' and the windows are overall, with the arch transoms, 10'.

Perhaps the arch transoms could have been rectangular in shape and of a height that allows the crown molding to pass by uninterrupted. Just a suggestion...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Living room. An antique armoire is also at home in the living room, where it can provide visual interest and a focal point that might have otherwise been supplied by a fireplace. This high-style, over-the-top piece with a mirrored door and beautiful marquetry definitely adds drama. One thing to be careful about is that armoires with single doors (especially if equipped with a big, heavy mirror like this one) can tip over on you when you open the door. If it’s filled with heavy things, this isn’t a problem. But if not, you might want to secure it to the wall using one of those earthquake braces — which is a good idea anyway with tall pieces of furniture.
