Decorating Trends: Architectural Digest Living Room Showcase

Every now and then when you come across a magnificent interior space as a designer, you have to share the moment and pass it along for others to enjoy. Decorating Trends: Living Room Showcase is just that, a showcase of well-designed interiors featured in Architectural Digest that execute the fundamentals of great design in a well balanced, elegant and inviting way that draws you into the space.

The traditional room features a stone fireplace, built-in bookshelves and detailed millwork. “The room, a library in its original incarnation was the perfect back drop for our mix of furniture and accessories,” says Vaught.
