Bright living room space with luxurious brown leather chairs and original wooden casement windows

From the floor-to-ceiling windows in their original wooden casements, to the exposed brick wall, we started with this Brooklyn brownstone’s attractive architectural elements to create a space evocative of a great room. The soft, oversized leather chairs, a cream sofa, and beaded chandelier infuse the room with casual elegance.

Connected by light treatments and furnishings of both classic and modern design, areas within the open floor plan were created for dining and entertaining: a round table and comfortable banquette for easy conversations with friends, a large tufted couch for lounging after a meal.

Lauren drew her color inspiration from her home state of Kentucky, hence the creamy palette is accented throughout with variations of blue. Among the soft woods, antique metals, and cozy interiors, a youthful, laid-back environment echoes with the charms of the dreamy old South.
