An Updated Living Room

After a couple months of waiting our client's living room is now finished! We went from a brightly colored 90s style living room to a calm, inviting, relaxing room where family gatherings and guests can enjoy each other's company.

The room had hunter green carpet, pink wing back chairs and bold floral draperies. Our client wanted us to create a space for her that wasn't trendy. This is the last house she plans to own, so the design needed to be transitional and timeless. Our initial plan for the space featured gorgeous red and cream patterned fabrics; however, with those fabrics backordered until January we had to reselect new fabrics so the project could be finished by Thanksgiving. We reselected new fabric that really spoke to the timelessness of the room. The new fabric is neutral with a blue floral pattern. To offset the neutrality from the wall we had the drapes banded in the same cornice fabric to make the drapes pop from the wall. We selected a cornice shape reminiscent from a design seen at the Wynn hotel. The cornice is 16' long and is covered in a soft blue textured fabric. The texture helps to soften the appearance and length.

New chairs were selected with custom fabric. They are a great taupe and blue stripe with nail head trim. Custom pillows were made for both existing sofas and the new chairs. The pillows are made from the same drapery fabric and a beautiful accent fabric with a diamond pattern. New end tables and a cocktail table were also selected for the space. We just love how the new cocktail table fills up the space and lends to the elegance of the room. 

We selected new sculpted carpeting, which adds such a refined feel to the space and the neutral tan we chose really calms down the room. New art was selected for above the fireplace and on the opposite wall.  We have new botanical prints that add a touch of red to the space.  New accessories were also added, and we worked a lot of her existing items in as well. She had many with significant meaning and since we design with our client in mind we really make it a point to showcase their collections and special items.

It is always a great feeling to see the room come together, especially all in one day, well except the carpet. Check out the pictures and let us know what you think!
