I love this room, or should I say a section of the room that is visible. The mantle has added molding which adds architectural interest. Articles have strategically been placed atop the mantle, and in an up and down flow. Your eye has to move up, then move down, then repeat. It's a design effect for interest. I try and use it for my garden (although sometimes the plants don't want to cooperate). This shade of green is used in Operating rooms to soothe the eyes. I like it, especially paired with that gorgeous French chair. I don't know the period of it, but I sure have my eyes on it.
I can only use my imagination in deciding what else is in that room. Maybe matching antique gold damask settees that face each other? How delightful would drinking tea be in that room?! A black steinway piano could be positioned on the opposite side of the room. The black piano would serve as great contract to the colored walls, and of course, it would serve as a functional piece of magnificent music and design. There might possible be a Renoir reproduction on one of the walls; the one with the two girls playing piano. They have golden, wispy hair and one can almost hear their music being played, very sweetly. I would hang that near the piano, of course.
Although the fireplace lends itself to a traditional look, I find this room has every opportunity to be furnished in an electic style. Some period furniture, some old and new artwork, definately a piece of sculpture or even two.
It's fun to imagine. I am sure many of you do the same thing, yes?
