Family Room Tour

stunning monochromatic formal living room

This expansive space is made dramatic using a monochromatic scheme with just a hint of color in the artwork. White is difficult to pull off, but I love it when it works!!!!!!

dramatic stone floor to ceiling fireplace

Floor-to-ceiling draperies and a dramatic stone fireplace draw the eye upward in this handsome hearth room. The granite-topped cocktail table is a great-looking piece that will hold up to frequent use, and the oversized curved Henredon sectional is sure to become a favorite spot for watching a movie and entertaining friends. This cozy and comfortable setting is a smash in my opinion.

architecturally interesting living room

This stunning room is enhanced with round furniture in a soft, inviting Alcantara suede that complements the architecture of the home.

asian inspired living room

warm neutral decor living room

This frequently used room with high ceilings required substantial furnishings that were practical and stylish. Oversized chenille sofas and a distressed-wood cocktail table "that you could put your feet up on" were the first order of the day. Casement draperies with stainless steel grommets let in light and views and offer privacy and softness. Tall banana plants and ethnic accessories round out the look and feel of this comfortable and well-used space. Photo by Ralph Alswang.
