Sunset Oasis

One of our latest projects to be completed was for an adorable young couple that wanted a new look for their living room.  They love entertaining and having friends and family over and the biggest struggle was providing enough seating for everyone.

We wanted to give them a room that was fresh, fun, young and chic.  She loves the colors of sunset and that became the inspiration for the space. Bringing in beautiful shades of orange and blue was the jumping off point for the room.   The walls were already a great tan that we wanted to keep.  Blue drapes were chosen because of the pop that they'd give to the walls.

They needed all new furniture and we found an amazing deal at a local furniture store on beige leather sofas.  We purchased two for them to provide the most amount of seating.  To give these sofas a pop we added spicy pumpkin color pillows and multi-colored horizontal stripe pillows to both. 

To add more color to the room a multi-color floral rug was selected.  The rug stands out in the room from the neutral furniture around it and is the perfect pop for the space.  Addressing the need for seating we found a great round glass top cocktail table that has four nesting stools underneath it.  These stools can be used as ottomans of seats for guests and they tuck away when not in use.  A great burnt orange floral chair was added to the space as well for even more seating.  In all they now have seating for 11 people without having to pull chairs from the dining room; it's pretty awesome.

Art and accessories were added to the entertainment center, table and walls to complete the space.  Never over look your walls when redoing a space; they are just as important as adding a new chair or rug.  Putting a fun piece of art, mirror or sculpture piece on the wall adds another layer of texture and finishes off the room.
