This conservatory-style room boasts a deep green wall and ceiling color inspired by the lush plants that fill the space.

This living room has a beautiful settee with green cushion to match the green and white patterned wallpaper. Visually elongate windows by hanging draperies high on the wall, right under crown molding, to create a long visual line the eye follows up, giving the impression the ceiling is much higher. An oversized wallpaper pattern works a similar magic, visually stretching walls to make a small room feel more spacious. Image courtesy of Thibaut.
There's something about a gold fireplace that feels utterly glamorous. To really complement the feature, the designers outfitted this cozy breakfast nook with a metallic mirror, fresh flowers and a round table that seats six, at least.
A pair of weathered green garden urns act as coffee tables, adding a touch of character balanced by a traditional sofa. The large window has a striped valance that evokes a Moroccan feel along with other accessories.
