Red Hardwood Floor in British Colonial Living Room
This living room evokes the nautical with a red, white and blue color palette. A white tongue-and-groove ceiling looks down upon a high-gloss red hardwood floor, while blue-and-white striped wallpaper lines the walls. Dark Colonial furniture, avian accessories and exotic floral upholstery are a nod to tropical style.
Georgian-Style Living Room With Curved Wall of Windows
Fun fact: The reason Colonial architecture tends to feature windows with many small “lights” (individual panes) is that the British imposed high import taxes on large pieces of glass sent into the Colonies.
In the dressing room, big bun feet of a Swedish-style armoire lift it off the floor while mirrored panels telescope light and space back into the room. A large tufted ottoman and window seat provide elegant seating.
The classically designed living space in this Asheville hilltop mansion is the perfect gathering place to enjoy a cocktail and listen to music. The room has a neutral tone, accented with hardwood flooring and crown molding, and a large fireplace with wooden mantel and tufted, green furniture for guests.
Sitting Room: Beach Villa Beauty in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Start the evening off with cocktails and appetizers seated at this stylish built-in bench where the curved shape makes conversation easy. Call guests' attention to the beautiful brickwork on the domed ceiling above.
The family room area was transformed into a bold and bright gathering place. The red, white and blue palette is appropriate for the colonial architecture of the house, while the playful touches and interesting shapes are graphic, modern and playful.
A warm fire crackles in the living room of this beautiful Asheville, NC, mansion. Tall ceilings and a warm color palette invite guests to read a book from the library, or have a seat in red, cushioned chairs.
