The listening cabinet's front panels are a light wash in gray‐brown tones that keep the room from being too weighed down by wood. The cabinet has a classic look with updated detailing; the double ring pulls bring in a few curves and another metal finish.
Same stripes, different color family. Often a fabric pattern comes in several different color groups. If you can track down the fabric, an easy way to pick pillows for your striped sofa is to have them made from the same print in a contrasting hue.
Decorative over‐the‐mantel mirror. It's the oldest interiors trick in the book. A striking over‐the‐mantel mirror gives even a supersnug living room a sense of space and light. However, don't settle for just any old mirror. For old‐school elegance, go for a Shabby Chic–style French‐looking piece with an ornate white plaster or gilt wooden frame. If you can afford to, get an original vintage mirror, complete with authentically aged silvering. If not, consider reproductions – they work a similar magic for less cash.
