Classic Comfort

Living Areas

Photography by Sarah Unger


Designed with a fresh take on the French country style, this cozy living area marries rustic and traditional elements from floor to ceiling. A tasseled vintage-inspired area rug brings in bright tones against the dark wide-plank floors that anchor the space. The sofa and accompanying furniture’s neutral palette allows the room’s more colorful accessories – including touches of gold and blue alongside simple greenery – to pop. Of particular note is a set of four gold-framed minimalistic prints flanking a central, eye-catching streaked canvas for modern appeal. Natural wood elements found in the accent and coffee tables incorporate rustic flair, as do a pair of wicker chairs placed on either side of the fireplace. With its contrasting brick finish and wood mantel, the fireplace itself makes a statement, exuding warmth and timeless taste. A tray ceiling provides visual depth to a room that already supplies so much in the way of visual interest.
