While on Nantucket last week, happened upon this preppy living traditional living room.

I think the accents like the bright orange glossy side table and the decorative pillows in turquoise and orange make add a bit of modern preppy to the space while the furniture remains very traditional. Notice the graphic pattern pale yellow and gray rug on the floor too.

I think it is kind of cute. Take a look and let me know what you think.

What do you think of the style of this living room? Like or dislike? Would you take as is or would you make some changes?  Please do tell.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. It's cute, I'm not entirely thrilled with it. I think they put too many furniture pieces in the living area. I would have used the sofa, love seat opposite each other and 2 anchoring arm chairs on either side and put the benches elsewhere. I also would have used different arm chairs...maybe something with a little texture?? I like the window seat though, it's very quaint. Oh and...the coffee table something in a dark walnut. okay. that is all! :)

  2. The window seat is "to die for" and I wouldn't change a thing there. However, the living area is so crowded that nothing shows well and it also lacks function. Who wants to squeeze between chairs to get into the seating?

  3. Love many aspects of this room especially the painted furniture and the rug. I would like to see a bit more contrast..perhaps a deeper greige on the sofa & loveseat/ and a pattern including the color of the Chinese stool on the chairs upholstery...something to add richness yet keep it fresh!

  4. Beautiful windows! Could handle the rest if someone gave it to me. Glad you had a grand time in Nantucket.

  5. It seems to be a luxurious room. I wish I could stay in this room. It;s furniture is really dashing.

  6. Love the color on the pillows and great hydrangea, but the room seems a little jammed with furniture. Needs to be simplified.
