The formal living room/parlor is one of the first impressions you get to make on your guests about what your personal style is and how you like to live at home. For the entertaining spaces in this home our client wanted chic, well edited rooms with simple palettes and lots of light. Their formal living room is exactly that with transitional furnishings and original artwork created by one of their daughters. The layering in this room is subtle but impactful. Metallic wallcovering defines the niches, sheer panels, a painted ceiling and an antique mirrored platform coffee table rest on a white silk rug. All of these carefully curated details have light-reflective properties. Editing does not equate to skimping.
A wrought iron chandelier hangs above a small wood table and a set of French doors open the room to the lush backyard. The neutral room features a brick accent wall and a large iron window. An oriental rug covers tile flooring bringing color to the otherwise neutral space.
