Living Room Redo: Timeless Elegance With a Modern Twist

Designer Amy Elbaum cleverly designed this living room with a slight nod to modern living in the accents she selected and placed within the traditional space. The artwork, lighting and overall look of the room evoke an updated yet timeless feel of sophistication. Especially lovely is the color scheme, which allows dark blue and soft color to play against white walls in a harmonious flow of hues.

Modern Artwork Helps Define Transitional Living Space

Designer Amy Elbaum selected artwork for this renovation that would complement yet contrast with the more traditional furnishings in the room. For example, the large glass-enclosed photograph that hangs above the velvet sofa creates a dimensional pull by setting a complex, industrial design against the white walls and solid color of the furniture. It creates a wonderful marrying of design styles.

Soft Coral and Navy Wow in Timeless Living Room

Nothing says sophistication like the right color choices in a room, and for Amy Elbaum's design, she put unusual color combinations together for a beautiful, timeless effect. The navy sofa and soft coral chairs are stunning against the white walls and drapes in this living room, and the scalloped coffee table adds dimension and drama to the space.

Living and Dining Room Combination Manifests Stylish Comfort

Designer Amy Elbaum lends a timeless quality to this New York City space by mingling the modern with the traditional for a spectacular design. The dining area, with a slightly modern flourish, flows into the living area, which employs color and comfort against a white backdrop. The overall effect is serene, sophisticated and inviting.

Dining Room Built-In Adds Storage & Style

This dining room built-in unit is a great addition since it allows for storage and display space. The unit is large yet simply designed for a harmonious effect in the room. The cabinet hardware adds a touch of elegance to the contemporary-styled piece.

Dining Room Art Makes Spectacular Statement

For this renovation, designer Amy Elbaum used modern and contemporary art to create an aura of sophistication for each redesigned space. In the dining room, an eclectic gallery of art was hung on one wall to create striking interest. The art complements the simpler design of the table and chairs.

Beveled Mirror and Marble Console Display Classic Elegance

Designer Amy Elbaum carefully selected accent furnishings for this living room renovation with an eye on simple lines and quiet sophistication. The beautiful round mirror that hangs above a simple marble console table makes a strong statement, yet both pieces blend effortlessly together for a unified look. The touch of blue in the glass lamps is another graceful expression here.
