With just a few key pieces, a traditional living space becomes a dreamy escape from everyday cares. A distressed white French Country sofa, delicately carved and adorned with plump throw pillows, invites relaxation. A carved mirror complements the sofa rather than matching perfectly, and whimsical touches like plants, antique china, and candelabra-inspired wall sconces lend both comfort and personality.
