Last week we introduced you to a new blog series and portfolio project: Portofino Glam. This week we will tour the formal living room, the first space you walk into when you step into this beautiful home. Let’s tour the details.
The formal living room incorporates a luxe mix of pieces with a black, white, and gray color story. We wanted the room to have modern and sophisticated details with touches of romantic and elegant details. We incorporated many of our client’s existing pieces into this space including her oversized art, rug, and printed chairs, which lend themselves to the black and white theme of the home.
One of the showstopping elements of the space is the lighting! The French gold leafed chandelier with draped chain details, accentuates the modern and elegant tone of the interiors. The other dramatic addition to the room is the rich gray silk draperies with a graphic tape on the leading edges. We made the custom draperies with extra fullness so that they would puddle at the bottom. Puddle-drapes feel most appropriate in a formal room, while silk fabrics in particular can add a soft, romantic look when puddled on the floor.
A cream velvet settee accented in ebony pair perfectly with our client’s existing pieces. The glass and brass cocktail table with a pair of hourglass velvet ottomans add to the glamour and grandeur of the room.
The accent pillows on the settee are a leopard cut velvet print and silk gray pillows. Black and white books and other decorative accents make this room styled and sophisticated.
The formal living room from Portofino Glam is one of our favorite spaces in this home. Next we will tour this home’s study!
As a reminder we will be closed on Thursday for the 4th of July holiday!
