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.

    That was a custom mix, so I don't have a number, but it's a really deep, brown-black.

    I had the color custom mixed, so sorry, I don't have a number for you. I just kept telling them "darker, muddier..." Best regards, Charles

    Bring home a selection of flooring samples and view them in your space. Choose a wide variety, and you'll quickly rule out many of them, and you'll see what appeals to you. You could consult a designer, or you could contact a flooring company that has a shop-at-home service for convenience. Good luck.

    Would you have to do the entire house in the dark molding. Also can you have white crown molding with maple colored trim?
