Client Files: Living Room Reveal

I'm excited to reveal pictures of one of my favorite projects I've been working on ... the living room of a wonderful young family.

Because everyone loves a good before and after photo, I'll start with that.



As you can see from the before picture ... we pretty much started with a blank slate. The room held some old furniture and toys ...

My client wasn't sure if she should reupholster the red chairs or get something new.  While I love the idea of reupholstering furniture to give it a new life, in this case I convinced her that we needed chairs with more height to fill that wonderful space in front of the window.

What I loved about my client is that she wasn't timid about going with all of the pattern I threw at her: stripes, medallions, florals, geometrics.

Because this is the first room people see upon entering their home, I wanted to do something dramatic. The result is an interesting and dynamic space that at the same time feels serene and elegant.

Here are some more shots ...

I love this collection of colorful Parisian street scene photographs.

 We needed a very thin console for this wall, but were able to create lots of visual interest with a mirror and some simple accessories.

The custom designed striped curtains provide the perfect backdrop to this sitting area.

Although we didn't keep the old chairs, I did suggest that with a few coats of paint, this desk armoire could still be perfect in this corner.

My client and her dad did a beautiful job painting it  ...

 What do you think?

I hope my client and her family will continue to enjoy this cheery spot in their home.
