Serene, Sophisticated Sitting Room

About the concept: White-on-white: a vintage reflection with contemporary flairs of freshness adding sleek elegances through visual texture, tactility, light and varied materials.
About the project: This space was in a showhouse in Chadds Ford, PA. The home was a gorgeous stone mansion built in 1914. Drip Painting: Original by Susan Hopkins. Photo by Alyssa Andrew Photography.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Make All White Look So Right
Choose at least three different white tones. Two shades of the same color can feel mismatched; three or more feel intentional. Your best bet is to shoot for five or six white shades to create enough depth that the room won't feel flat.

Another layout option would be to have some great storage/bookshelves along the wall on the left when your walk in . . . and leave the brick wall exposed!
