Living Room

Traditional Living Room, Detroit

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.
