Pink Striped Victorian Sitting Room With Floral Accents
This pale pink Victorian sitting room is a hub of floral furniture and curtains in front of the pink and gray striped wallpaper. A camelback sofa has throw pillows with a matching pattern from the upholstered wing chair and sits around the round, tufted ottoman with a fringed bottom. The tasseled pillows mirror the tasseled floor-length curtains for a fully patterned room.
In Hilary's design for this formal living room, as seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It, she brings in lots of patterns and textures to give the room a unique and complex look. The design takes advantage of old world luxury in pieces such as the chandelier hanging from the ceiling, the complex mantelpiece, the Victorian wingback furniture, and the intricate cabinetry. She then blends a mixture of patterns like stripes and paisley together for a completed look.
Above a black felt pool table in this game room hangs two bronze lampshade chandeliers. Large windows in the room are partially covered by sage green drapes and screens. A round table with chairs and a bar area provides seating.
This sitting room is a tiny space that was maximized by creating a monochromatic scheme. By using materials in the same color but by varying the texture and incorporating elements of shine, the space feels more spacious than it is. Using over-scaled damask wallpaper with a metallic finish brings a traditional pattern some glamour. The mirrored desk brings a sexy vibe while allowing the eye to pass over it cleanly. Modern framed artwork also gives the room a more updated look. The white shag balances all the color and shine in the room.
Antique-filled Living Space Featuring a Table Vignette that Includes Antique Louis Vuitton Suitcases
Upon walking into this striking home, guests are greeted with a spectacular table vignette. The ornate table was acquired at an estate sale; vintage Louis Vuitton Suitcases are neatly tucked underneath. Antique items are arranged in orderly fashion along with a beautiful sketch of a french lady; the bronze melon placed on the table opens to reveal an antique inkwell.
The main entry shows off another of the interesting chimneys that both divide and add lots of visual interest and texture to the room. Beautiful Oriental rugs further mark off the space for different purposes.
A leather-textured and metal-studded ceiling, hand-carved ceiling medallion and sumptuous silk drapes with double-layered tassel and bullion fringe create a cozy corner for a hand-crafted game table and leather upholstered side chairs. Gas wall lanterns complement the soft glow of the three-tiered hand-painted silk Fortuny chandelier and help create an ambiance of luxury in this one-of-a-kind room.
