House tour. Living room.

Welcome to the living room...The walls are Chocolate brown and goes very well with the burnt orange/gold furniture and Aqua ceilings....

Love the couch. The front pillow has a cheetah fabric. Animal fabrics are used a lot in French designs.
We like them a lot. 

Tommy is in the most comfortable chair in the house of course.
The green Topiary tree on the table is used every Christmas has a Christmas tree.
It can go anywhere in the house.

The mantle is perfect for a 1700 Parisian style.
My collection of Toile vases on the fire place mantle. I use them all over the place and they make great center pieces. I use them with flowers for a party.
We use everything we have in France. It is very important. Things have to be beautiful and with a purpose....Sometimes more than one purpose.

This is the same Chandelier across the entry as the dining room. 
The mirror was purchases before i designed the house. I believe that if you only buy things you love. You will always find a place and purpose for everything.

The colors are harmonious.

Going to the dining room...

For paint colors, see my post about it.
