New Modern Living Room
Brad Ford designs a soft, layered space.
This living room exemplifies 2011's new layered look, with luxurious textures like velvet, faux fur, leather, sisal and well-curated books, plants and objets to give modern style a cosy update. Nods to classic modernism endure with timeless furniture and crisp white walls, but the overall look is softened with hand-thrown pottery, ample pillows, tufted upholstery and lots of wood. Silvery blue keep the palette au courant, while warm earthy tones enhance the homey vibe.
