The sitting room serves as the introduction to the living and dining rooms, hinting at the visuals that are to come. “In each zone, I repeated things—patterns, colors, textures—so the eye finds an easy place to rest,” Meares says. The chairs are slipcovered in the same fabric as the dining room curtains.
Get the look: The slipcovers were crafted from Schumacher’s Zimba fabric. The walls are painted Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore. The rug is from Pottery Barn. The coffee table, lamps, and pendant light are from Furbish Studio.
