“With plenty of seating and luxe details, a formal setup is a special-occasion spot—the focus is on entertaining rather than everyday life.” —Elizabeth Bauer, interior designer
Squared-Off Floor Plan
The furniture, all at right angles, seems to stand at attention. Wide spacing makes the room feel grander than it is. The rug defines the seating zone, but because it’s an unfussy material (jute), it sends a welcoming signal.
Multiples, in Furnishings and Art
The room has a sense of structure and organization, thanks to sets of chairs, tables, and lamps as well as themed art hung in a crisp grid. Almost every detail has a partner.
Sophisticated Palette and Textures
Neutral tones with one pastel (lavender) used sparingly feels refined. Silk drapes, tufted velvet, scalloped edges on a leather daybed, and mirrored surfaces add up to lushness.
