Traditional Living Room

Traditional Living Room

A Traditional Living Room featuring dark and light grays, soft tans and pops of orange.

NGD Interiors took a small dark and dated living room and turned it into a space for entertaining.  The small front living room was attached to a dark and narrow dining room situated just outside a small L-shaped kitchen.  During the planning phase, it was determined that a more open floor plan was more desirable but still needed to keep a traditional style layout.  The shared corner wall between the living/dining room and kitchen was turned into a half wall.  By implementing a half wall,  the space appears larger as well as brighter from the now shared light from the  large windows. With the half wall, a small countertop with traditional legs and a polished granite countertop was added, providing much needed extra countertop space in the kitchen.

Dated textured wallpaper was stripped from the walls and freshly painted in a smooth grey finish.  The trim work was painted in a traditional white gloss sheen. New wood flooring in a grey toned finish replaced the old carpeting giving the space a fresh and clean,  yet tradtional feeling.

Next up furniture and placement.  The sofa, which was placed against the far wall, made the front living room looking look scarce and bare.  The traditional antique sofa was reupholstered with all new materials and a durable microfiber in a dark grey velvet finish.  The unique wooden side spindles, legs, and detailed frame were refinished with a dark stain.  The sofa is situated under the large front window.  Directly across are two side chairs in a traditional shape, covered in a cream linen and black scripted pattern.  Punches of orange was added with pillows featuring traditional fresh florals, geometric patterns, and solid colors.  The woven rug features a tan background with geometric patterns in a deep orange, bringing all of the color elements together.

Bridging the traditional living room and dining room is a stylish Universal liquor “locker” cabinet featuring a dark wood and metal frame with accordion folding doors with light wooden slats.  Once opened, the cabinet is equipped with a lighted interior, mirrored back, glass shelves for bottles and glasses, stemware racking and drawers for additional storage.  Perfect for guests to enjoy a mixed cocktail or a glass of wine before dinner begins.

The prior dining table was shoved against the wall and only sat three guests.  A new traditional large 6 person table was placed and centered in the room.  The dark cerused oak wood compliments the dark flooring, while the stain resistant seating ties into the other tanned tones in the room.  A new traditional center light fixture hangs over the newly placed table.

Flanking both large windows are linen draperies with a embroidered gray geometric pattern.  On the newly refinished stairs, we carried a geometric pattern with a traditional stair runner completing this traditional living room.
