We usually turn to our laptop to watch T.V. (thank you Hulu). Which means that our living room has turned into a sitting room where we listen to records, get work done on the laptop and occasionally pull a chair up to the window and people watch outside. Alan's sitting room reminds us of one we'd like to create--a cozy spot to retreat.
Alan's sitting room is full of layers and texture--mixing up patterns and prints which adds to the inviting look. The pairing of dark wood and shades of green is a great color combo which is soothing and has an organic feel. Big windows and white built-in bookcases balance the dark tones making the space feel alive and fresh. Plants also breathe life into this den of comfort with free-standing light sources illuminating each nook. The layered look is furthered by Alan's wall decor--salon style prints and tapestry hung above the couch and low-hung artwork in additional seating areas.
