In the living room of this luxurious old New York City apartment, shades of rosy and shell pinks created a cheerful atmosphere for traditional furniture.

Here, take a peek into how one welcoming room in the home of a wealthy Manhattan philanthropist/socialite Emily McFadden Harrison was decorated back in the early 1950s.

To start, 18th-century French and English furniture was mixed with finesse against a background of pink-tinted walls and pink taffeta curtains.

Throughout the room, a flowered chintz with yellow background alternated with gray damask upholstery.

In the fireplace grouping here, you can see how the sofa and chair covered in chintz picked up the pinks of the room and the green cast of the damask on the long sofa.

The carpet was dyed a pale gray to blend with the damask upholstery that linked the traditional furniture to a bright color scheme.
