Stairway to Elegance-Living Room

 |  Photographer Peter Rymwid  |  Designer Diane Gote

The living room is a clean, uncluttered rendition of formal. The furnishings center on the fireplace—one of five in the home. This one has a marble surround and extensive molding. It’s topped with a leaded mirror with brass studs. The curves of a green silk paisley sofa are balanced with a clean-lined, wood-framed loveseat and wood chairs with intricately carved backs. An antique brass chandelier with smoky crystal beads and muted green linen shades hangs from a coffered ceiling.
