Modern English Style Living Room in Cool Tones
Get ready to fall in love with this modern English style living room in cool tones. Decorated by Laura Design Company, the home resides in Chicago. The space has such classic, timeless appeal. It’s the type of room you won’t quickly grow tired of.
A pair of matching built-in bookcases flank each side of the fireplace. A cool blue-gray paint color creates a soft backdrop for collectibles on the shelves. A contemporary style coffee table plays well with the traditional elements of the space.
Here’s a better view of the built-in shelving units next to the fireplace. A pair of rattan chairs lend a little texture. I’m a big fan of paisley and am quite fond of the pillows. The leather pillows are a classy touch, too.
Pottery, books, and baskets adorn the shelves. Less attractive items can be stored behind the cabinet doors underneath the shelves.
A comfy chaise in windowpane fabric cozies up next to the window for easy reading during the day, with a nearby floor lamp for nighttime reading. I need that chaise in my life. It’d be perfect in my family room. A linen throw at the end of the chaise adds softness can keep feet warm on chilly Chicago days.
Some people call the style of this room transitional, but it reminds me of a modern English style living room. Such a pretty room with wonderful softness. Even the beautiful painting over the fireplace is soft and looks a little foggy.

I’d call this room “cool”, calm and collected. Nice!
I agree with above comment, a very calm and serene room. Love the bookcases and that double chair/chaise lounger!
Hi Lori! I fell in love with the room when I saw it. The bookcases are a definite plus!
It’s a lot bigger than my living room but, almost the same color. I love that comfy chair by the window for reading so nice.
Hi Marlene! Sounds like you chose a beautiful color for your living room! I love that chair too – now I want to find one for my family room. 🙂
Thanks so much for sharing Jennifer! This makes our day!! And we couldn’t agree more… get us to that chaise at the end of a day!
Hello, may I ask the paint color. I simply adore it.
