A variety of antique and contemporary textures were so creatively combined in this chic 1950s living room that they added more than just surface interest.
The rayon chair and sofa fabric achieved a surprisingly soft blend of sharp oranges and reds, while the wall-to-ceiling hand-woven blind repeated those warm colors.
The aged red brick fireplace wall was an imaginative addition to the assorted textures, and made the ideal backdrop for the white lampshade and wide-matted prints.
A highlight of this room was the shiny golden brass metal fireplace — an unusual antique that fit perfectly with the whole decorative scheme.
The two tiny square occasional tables were white with golden accents on their stands — another play off of the color of the nearby brass.
Don’t miss one other subtle detail, this one on either side of the window: the full-height folding shutters in white with an almost rustic-look woodgrain that showed through.
In fact, overall, this room was a great example of how serenely old and new lines, styles, and colors could live together in a comparatively small area.
