Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

Very nice room. I love the windows, clean and airy look, and muted colors.

I don't care for the art above the fireplace at all. I think I would put a very distressed mirror with a wide burnished bronze frame in it's place.

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

I like the room but not the furniture placement.  Why cover up the fireplace? 

 

Also, don't like the bird pics, the tree in the corner, that skinny lamp on the table and the nic nacs on the shelves.  No cohesion.  Needs window coverings.

 

I do like the furniture and rug.

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

I like the room and the colors, but a couple of things that I don't like are
:

The chairs

the couch in front of the fireplace

the pics of birds

 

Otherwise a nice room!

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

I totally agree about covering the fireplace, makes no sense.

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

Thank you for sharing this lovely room! I really like the overall look; the balance of it being refined, yet comfortable is well done.

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

I love the chairs and the windows.  The sofa and rug are OK.  Everything else would have to be changed out and a different placement is needed for the furniture.  I would have to add window treatments and a richer paint color.

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

I like it, but I am more of a contemporary or mid century gal, I agree about the fireplace too.  But mainly, why are the chairs facing into the room and not outward to those great windows?

I prefer much cleaner lines, love the built ins also

I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend, til death, your right to say it

Re: Traditional Casual Living Room

This photo was posted before.  Still makes no sense to me to block the fireplace with a sofa, push up against the windows two ponderous side-by-side chairs that look like they belong in a move theatre, and plop a coffee table in the middle of the room where it's out of reach from the sofa and chairs.

 

Love the inset arches, which would look a lot better stacked with more substantial items than the chotchkes that disappear into the white background.

I'm a Libra. I can't get past the fact that the fireplace surround is not even centered on the wall.
