This living room, featured in Southern Accents, speaks so fluently of its New Orleans location. The creamy silk draperies, the wedding cake chandelier, and the gilt mirror epitomize the classic beauty and charm of the city.
A restrained palette keeps the room from becoming fussy. Generously sized upholstered chairs, mixed with more traditionally French forms, keep modern ideas of comfort at the forefront.
Cover a collection of mismatched antique chairs with a fine fabric in a humble print, like a gingham check, to create a fresh, sophisticated look.
