I discovered the work of New York design firm Beale-Lana on one of my favorite blogs, Desire to Inspire, this week. Here are a few images from a living room in a Manhattan apartment they did. I really love how they have used so many traditional elements together and yet managed to create a room that is not old or stuffy, but still warm and cosy. They've used a great mix of fabrics, really modern graphic designs and what I would call "granny" designs, with an Aubusson rug. I certainly would not mind coming home to that sofa with all those cushions every night!
