When I set out to find an image that represented my dream living room decor, I knew it needed to include certain elements that I view as the defining components of my style. This living room decor from Tara Shaw’s home in New Orleans perfectly fits that bill. It is at once fresh and contemporary while feeling European inspired. Of singular importance in any living room decor is a sumptuous sofa that one can sink into, and the cream linen one here is deliciously inviting.
I love this living room decor as it is filled with light & has a peaceful timeless feel. From the natural timber floor to the plain white shutters at the window everything has been kept simple & is therefore easy on the eye making the whole space very relaxed. The shelves provide storage for books & other objects of interest & these are framed perfectly with the art on the wall above. The look has a clear respect for the architecture of the room & pink cushions add a pop of colour.. Perfect.
The fireplace and stunning mirror are the real heroes in this gorgeous living room decor. We recently redesigned this space for a client and in its original incarnation, the chimney breast had no fireplace surround or mantel, just a simple opening for the wood burning stove which was totally out of proportion. We sourced an elegant marble fireplace to give the room a feeling of luxury, and added the mirror whose impressive height draws the eye up to the stunning vaulted ceiling. Its rustic nature compliments the base of the coffee table and gives an otherwise neutral room a real edge and personality – and the splash of green is the perfect colour pop!
This sitting room in my old apartment encapsulates what a well-designed home is about to me. It’s a warm, personal space filled with furniture, art and objects that tell a story of the owners’ interests, passions and personalities. In this picture a Moorish mirror reflects a 1950s West German bowl light, it sounds like an unusual contrast but it somehow works. It is embracing idiosyncrasy and finding those interesting touches that make a room unique that is part of the joy of decorating.
