Ebony-stained floors add impact to this neutral space.
"This living room is the room that sold me on the house," says House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma. "It has soaring 12' ceilings, so it feels really spacious." A mix of modern and traditional touches, like the William Birch sofa paired with a low Eames chair and stool, blends the personal tastes of both Suzanne and her husband, Arriz Hassam of 3rd Uncle Design Inc. "I did a salon-style gallery wall in this house, too. It lends the room a library feel that is so inviting come winter time. I have lots of fun changing things up in this room, including drapes, seat covers, throw cushions and slip covers on the sofa," says Suzanne. "The antique globe was in my dad's library when I was a kid, and he let me have it when I moved in. I love the way it casts a soft glow in the room."
