Study Features Comfortable Seating for Curling Up With a Book
A cozy study features comfortable seating and appropriate task lighting for curling up with a good book. Thanks to this home's location along the shores of Long Island Sound in Old Greenwich, Conn., the room enjoys sweeping water views through the sunny windows.
Traditional Private Study Includes Wood-Paneled Walls
Stepping into the owners' private study reveals a light blue ceiling and traditional, wood-paneled walls. To balance the more masculine elements of the room, the designers brought in a cream-colored sofa, tufted armchairs, a traditional wood table and a blue area rug.
The living room in this beautifully restored Victorian, Ontario farmhouse offers guests plenty of comfortable seating, high ceilings and hardwood floors. The calming blue color palette pairs perfectly with white trim and accents, as seen on the two large bookshelves.
By paring this dining room down to the essentials -- a traditional wood table, six slipper chairs and a small light fixture -- the designers ensured that all eyes would be on the view outside. If you look closely, though, you'll see classic details like crown molding, wainscoting and stained glass over the windows.
A mix of fun colors and patterns set the tone in this light-filled living space, part of a 12,000-square-foot waterfront home in Greenwich, Connecticut. From the high-gloss red coffee table to the pair of mustard armchairs to the multicolored pillows, the hues in this room contrast nicely against the white walls and ceiling. Wall-size windows offer a sweeping view to the patio and water view beyond.
