One Room Three Ways
Three accomplished designers lend their distinctive styles to one living room.
Carole Weaks used a single shade of green to create a serene, highly functional space. "My favorite rooms always have a mix of antique furniture and contemporary art," she says. The Atlanta-based designer's concept for the living room reflects this affinity. First and foremost, Weaks believes that a room should answer to the realities of modern life. "I'm dedicated to designing rooms that function," says Weaks. "If a room is friendly and comfortable, people will use it."
TIP: Think about how your window treatments will look from the outside. Here, the draperies are visible from the terrace, so Weaks specified a double-faced silk.
