LIGHT & LIVELY

Glamour and intimacy combine in a Livingston, New Jersey, home.

A scalloped mother-of-pearl mirror adds a wow factor in this sunroom. The serene palette of cream and gray is showcased in the three-dimensional pattern of a rug from Safavieh’s Tibetan Collection.

Kosh Palmer, lead designer at Safavieh’s Livingston, New Jersey, showroom, was handed a blank canvas and a mission: Make a spacious home intimate for a close-knit family of five, but don’t skimp on sheer elegance.

Palmer’s first focus was the double-height family room, which risked feeling cold. She anchored the space with one of Safavieh’s Thomas O’Brian-designed rugs in a lattice pattern. For touches of glamour in the intentionally compact seating area, she added a brass martini table embedded with Swarovski crystal, an acrylic cocktail table, and curly lamb ottomans.

To furnish the formal living room, above, designer Kosh Palmer started out with a Safavieh Tibetan rug. Triangle ottomans lend a geometric touch to more transitional elements, like the light gray velvet sofa.

In the formal living room, Palmer began with a Safavieh Tibetan rug. She introduced a geometric element with triangle ottomans, which she paired with pale pink wing chairs and a light gray velvet sofa.

The sunroom has a serene palette, thanks to a Safavieh Tibetan rug in cream with a hint of gray, and the tufted sofa, chair and ottoman table in cream-toned linen. Other highlights are the scalloped mother-of-pearl mirror, metal-and-marble table lamps, taupe velvet ottomans and shagreen side tables.

For the lady of the house, the sunroom is the favorite place for a good read, a sure sign that Palmer hit her design mark.

The family room is the true star of the home, thanks to its double height. The setting is ideal for such glamorous touches as an acrylic coffee table and curly lamb ottomans.
