The Home Advantage - Decorate With Cream and Grey

As soon as I laid eyes on this living room designed by Jean Louis Deniot I was immediately captivated. I'm usually drawn to more colorful decor but this room had a perfect balance of being elegant yet comfortable. Most of all I was intrigued by the muted color scheme of cream and grey. These are two colors I would usually never think of putting together when decorating a home because I would assume it would just turn out to be a bland room. After looking at the inspiration image it dawned on me that the reason I was drawn to the room was that it had classic elements mixed with very bold modern pieces, such as the painting over the sofa. With those added visual elements and hints of metallic, the color scheme came to life.
Alas, since I can not afford Mr. Denoit's interior design services I decided to create a set showcasing how to emulate the living room he designed. 

Decorating Tips:
- Consider adding abstract art to your living room. Because of its graphic nature, it lends a cool, sophisticated air to any elegant space.
- Metallic finishes such as silver, gold, and copper complement every type of decorating style and color scheme.
- If you are decorating a small space consider round shapes. They add visual interest without taking up a lot of space.

  1. Yes, that is a dream living room. The items you have chosen would certainly help to recreate that effect. I particularly like the table. That would look nice in my existing lounge.

    1. The table can work well with a variety of design styles. I'm glad you like my choices!

  2. You found the perfect pieces to replicate the look. I actually like yours better than the ones in the inspiration room.

    1. Thank you such Myra. I tried my best to find items that captured the essence of the initial design.
