The homeowners wanted to modernize the living room of their 1900s row house, while highlighting the room's beautiful architectural details. However, one architectural element, the columns that were added in the '80s, needed to go.
A minimalist color scheme brings a light and airy quality to the living room, while a grouping of four cozy chairs creates an intimate seating area for conversations. Sheer gray draperies are hung right below the molding to heighten the room and add softness to the windows.
Susan opens up the parlor by removing the columns between the two spaces. Each seating area features a different color palette, but the neutral nature of both allows the spaces to flow seamlessly together.
A combination of warm browns and soft creams allows the unique lines of the furnishings to stand out. With the neutral palette, Susan is able to mix organic and modern pieces to create this eclectic yet natural living room.
