Large rooms with high ceilings can be problematic for those wishing for a cozy atmosphere in a living room. No problem. Layer in extra-comfortable furnishings, and all of a sudden that cavernous space feels more quaint.
In the living room of this contemporary vacation home in Park City, Utah, designer Susan Brunstrum of Sweet Peas Design placed the color blocked panel drapery above the window framework to draw attention up to the vaulted ceiling, increasing the sense of space.
Brooklyn-based Lisa Kanning of design firm LKID framed the beautiful views in the dining room of this Big Sky, Montana, vacation home with simple, natural accents, choosing Hartmann & Forbes woven window shades and ombre drapery by Rosemary Hallgarten to add a layer of luxury without distraction.
In the dining room of this Illinois home, Jennifer Kranitz of Chicago-based firm PROjECT used silk drapery as the backdrop to a pair of African portraits, allowing the subtle shimmer of the fabric to create a contrast with the chains used to hang the artwork and balance the drama of the Mongolian fur ladder back dining chairs and Oly bubble chandelier.
