What I love most about Elizabeth's formal living room is how she mixes pieces together to create harmony and intrigue. She combines silk and velvet pillows with the jute rug under the Moyer cow hide rug to perfection. She tosses in scene-stealing floor lamps, but then grounds them with an antique settee so that each play off of one another. She created a feeling of comfort with symmetry. Lovely space!
No ho hum, been there, seen that kind of floor lamps for Pretty Pink Tulips residence.
I always think good design should "suggest" things to do, and this seating vignette does just that....sit, relax, enjoy my home and take a look at Preston Bailey's book.
I can't rave about Elizabeth or her home enough, both are beautiful! Do you find yourself gravitating towards symmetry when decorating a room? Did you notice how she skillfully created a neutral space but then added punches of color? Thanks Elizabeth for sharing your home!
