Living rooms are a place to relax, converse, and relish in the comforts of home. With a palette of soothing neutrals and abundant texture, these spaces exude timeless elegance.
At the Lake Forest Showhouse in Illinois, designer Gail Plechaty was inspired by formal French salons to create a beautiful purple living room that is dressy without apology. As a fine example of elegant symmetry, a grand presentation of botanical prints hangs between soaring windows dressed in luxurious silk panels. The coral color of the prints echoes the hue in the rug that grounds a marble-topped coffee table and a pair of Louis XVI chairs flanking a sofa slipcovered in ivory cotton.
