High Contrast Living Room

Modern elements meet classic details in this eye-catching space.

This glamorous black and white living room is grounded by a graphic patterned rug. A chunky wooden side table adds warmth and a visual break from the bold palette. Curvy bergere chairs are an opulent antique counterpoint and the large pencil drawing of the homeowner's children adds a personal tone.
