The colors used in this transitional living room mimic the outside and evoke a clutter-free environment. The custom oil painting, which features the homeowner's children, provides a fun personalized touch in this neutral living room.
Leah Atkins' clients wanted to leave their cluttered, country style in the past and go for a fresh, traditional look in their new home. Thus, their entryway features a neutral color palette with antiques layered in, like a traditional console table, bust, oil painting and upholstered ottoman.
Exemplifying nautical style, the broad living room is adorned with traditional oil paintings of seaward ships. Tranquil shades of blue are evidenced throughout—from the relaxed furniture to the faux-painted walls.
Privately commissioned oil paintings set the mood for this living room setting. Casual, yet elegant, the space looks adult but is very family-friendly. A custom concrete and black glass natural wood burning firebox adds a masculine vibe, while the floral oil painting adds some femininity to the space. This is the clients favorite spot to sit, relax and enjoy the ravine view.
Could this den be any cozier? We think not! Custom built-ins flank the fireplace, giving the owners space for firewood on one side and a TV on the other. An oil painting of the family dog feels right at home above the mantel.
Oil-based stains and paints are considered hazardous waste. Take them to a hazardous waste collection site. As far as oil-stained rags (or latex paint cans), let them dry completely on a nonflammable surface (like metal) away from any buildings. Once completely dry, toss in the trash.
