Traditional + Transitional + Parisian // Living Room

This classic and collected traditional living room was designed for a family who live in a charming, older home. The traditional style that the client gravitates toward fit the architecture of their home perfectly.

This formal, traditional living room mixes traditional and transitional, along with a few glam / Parisian pieces. We kept some of the lovely antique pieces, as well as the main gray sofa. Here is a peek at how it turned out (there are more before and after photos at the end of the post)! The clients did such a great job executing the design.

Before & After

We love a good before and after, especially from one of our virtual projects (e-design). As with all of our virtual design projects, the client was given design boards, a shopping list, and a floor plan. They execute the plan on their timeline and as their budget allows.

A completely new floor plan, with the fireplace as the focal point, was the key to unlocking the potential of this room. The new color palette, beautiful furniture, window treatments, and layering did wonders, don’t you think?

Alternate Concepts

For virtual design projects, we always start out with several concept boards and narrow down from there. The final concept was featured above. However, we loved the three alternate concepts and wanted to share them! Even though some of the major pieces are different, all the concepts achieve the same Traditional + Transitional + Glam look. Sources are linked below.

A note about PHI HomeSome of the products linked in this post are to-the-trade pieces from our shop, PHI Home. Typically to-the-trade pieces are purchased exclusively by trade professionals (i.e. interior designers) at wholesale, and then resold to their clients at a markup. We’re delighted to extend access to our favorite trade furniture and décor to everyone, regardless of whether you’re our client or not. Should you require a different size or color variation, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
