Timeless, Traditional Kitchen + Living Room

Designer Anna Braund chose a soft neutral color palette to visually tie this open-concept living room and kitchen together. The light-as-air shades also help the space feel brighter and roomier.

Small and Serene Neutral Traditional Living Room

What it lacks in square footage this Atlanta home makes up for in flawless style. A delicate blend of serene neutrals and elegant furnishings define the small traditional living room. A vaulted ceiling draws the eye upward and frames the neutral space.

Traditional Living Room Adjacent to Small Kitchen

A peninsula juts out from behind a comfy armchair, dividing the traditional living room from the small, gleaming kitchen. A shared neutral color palette creates a seamless feel between the two rooms.

Elegant, Traditional Sofa Topped With Plump Pillows

A bit of color and pattern goes a long way in this small traditional living room, where a serene symmetry keeps the look unified and sophisticated. Throw pillows contribute to the symmetry as well as the room's neutral color palette.

Multicolored Throw Pillows With Mixed Patterns

The lofty layering of multicolored throw pillows keeps the living room feeling inviting and luxurious. The scale of the pillows' patterns don't compete with one another, making it a mix-and-match success.
