Colour Palette: Romantic Living Room

Something about this traditional living room space caught my attention. Yes, the burnt orange hues and deep pinks are a striking element of the scheme, but it was more than that. The billowing, almost elongated drapes are a nod to the dramatic height of the room, whilst the oversized, circular ottoman hints that the space is for relaxing in, despite the otherwise formal furniture. Finally, the well-balanced colour palette is demonstrated through the addition of olive green and blue shades that break up the louder orange and pink hues. What elements of this scheme do you like best, friends?

  10. I love that tufted chair - the pieces are so traditional and dramatic but the lack of clutter and bold color scheme keeps it so fresh!

  11. Button back chairs just make me want to sink in and recline with languid abandon.

    I don't usually do pink but I'd happily make an exception in this case!

  12. I adore the ottoman in front of the fireplace. We have a similar set up with an oversize rectangle and its one of my favorite spots. Although its usually occupied by the pooch. ;)

  13. I think you described it very well Will :-) I like the round shapes of the furniture, no hard edges.
