Traditional Living Room in Lake Tahoe

Designer Linda McCall creates a charming place for family and friends to gather in this couple's traditional Lake Tahoe getaway.

  • Mixing Textures in Traditional Living Room

    Symmetrical furnishings and a neutral color palette give this traditional living room a simple, clean feel. Great use of texture in the rug, coffee table and stone fireplace creates depth and makes the large space feel intimate.

  • Wise Window Treatment

    To shield the afternoon sun and to keep a glare off the TV, black pull-down screens were installed above each window in the Lake Tahoe living room.

  • Living Room With Depth

    A pair of white built-in bookshelves flanks the fireplace in this traditional living room. Small details like the natural stone on the fireplace and the custom-made lamps create interest and give the room personality.

  • TV Cover-Up

    Designer Linda McCall toyed with several ideas for concealing the TV before deciding on a pair of barn-wood doors that were faux-painted. \"As the project evolved and the fireplace wall as a whole was so simply beautiful, I didn’t want anything over the TV that would overpower the fireplace,\" explains Linda.

  • The Perfect Hiding Place

    When closed, the faux-painted sliding barn-wood doors blend beautifully with this traditional living room's neutral color palette and don't overpower the lovely stone fireplace.
