The distressed wooden side table fits perfectly with the antique decor of this traditional room. Matching table lamps add contrast to the neutral room and blend well with the large gilded mirror. A large iron chandelier is reflected in the mirror view.
A black lacquer nightstand with mother of pearl knobs provides texture to this master bedroom. A contemporary lamp illuminates the nailhead upholstered headboard and patterns on the pillows. The turquoise vase of flowers puts a pop of color into the room and picks up the hint of cool blue on the headboard.
A skirted table can soften a room, especially if you have other wood furniture, molding or beams. To save more money, hunt in the fabric remnant section, or use a white canvas or even a long tablecloth to cover the table and add a glass top. Parker Kennedy Living also added a round mirror to the top of the side table. Mirror companies often stock round mirrors, which is more affordable than having one cut to the size. "That’s a good way to get a lot of bang for the buck for a table under $50," said interior designer Lance Jackson. "It puts a little more custom look to it."
This classic dining room features all-over neutral tones paired with traditional white crown molding and a soft floral area rug. Ivory chairs with floral upholstery are positioned around a round dining table, while a candelabra chandelier hangs above. A built-in hutch provides space for dining room decor.
This bright white county dining set commands the space in this traditional dining room. Transom windows help brighten this inviting room done in neutral tones. The space features white wood bar stools, espresso wood floors, French doors and a copper-toned chandelier.
A large rug is used to define the living area in this open concept layout. In a big space like this one, make sure that at least the front legs of furniture are on the rug to help visually bring items together.
This living room is decorated in a traditional style, from its floral cream-colored rug to its three oversized beige chairs. A Lucite coffee table is used to display a floral centerpiece, and above a white marble fireplace hangs a framed painting. A colonial-style door with wrought-iron hardware stands in the corner.
Skirted bedside tables were used in this traditional bedroom to soften the richness of the headboard and to add some color and pattern to the neutral space. A beautiful table skirt can hide a multitude of style sins, such as camouflaging a practical file-cabinet, or dressing up a perfectly sized — but perfectly ugly — flea market find.
The warm glow of the fireplace steals the eye against the cool tones of this neutral living room. A thick mantel frames the fireplace between two windows with bamboo blinds and beige curtains. The coffee table centered between the furniture features a dainty gold frame and gold tinted glass top.
A traditional neutral sofa, midcentury modern brown leather chairs and upholstered contemporary stools make up the seating in this bright and breezy living room. A natural wood coffee table with decorative iron legs is centered in the seating. A black and white wave painting tops the white mantel over a red brick fireplace.
