The use of contrasting but complementary colors in this room create a pleasing ambience.  The white trim and fireplace surround look clean and bright next to the rich cocoa brown of the walls.  The ‘light and dark’ theme of this room is used throughout to add cohesive symmetry.  The light sofa is contained by the dark end table and coffee table.  The lamp is grounded with its dark base but allowed to expand by the use of a light shade.  Light artwork is surrounded and enhanced by dark frames.  The hickory flooring is gorgeous and adds a warm touch with horizontal patterning.  Even though the room is fairly large, there is a comfortable area for intimate conversation or simply reading a good book.

Great use of tranquil color in this room.  The dark moss green walls bring out the lovely softer green tone-on-tone in the sofa pillows.  The dark wood coffee table and dining table contrast beautifully with the light-neutral carpeting and white trim of the crown molding, door casement, fireplace surround and window frames.  The decorator used a white ceiling to emphasize the height of the room.

The antique painted piano lends a perfect balance to the size and scale of the room, and hints at the wall color without looking as if it was intentional.

The green and gold walls warm the space in this room, yet create a softness that is serene and relaxing. The cream wing back chairs mirror the formal fireplace surround, adding light and cohesiveness to the room.  The artwork draws your attention while tying in the browns and muted oranges of the pillows and sofa.  The wispy arrangement on the mantel creates softness, as well as adding texture while in keeping with the overall accent colors.
