All About

“The solution was so simple that it was complex,” says designer Donovan Swick. “Basically we started from scratch. First, we tore up that dreadful tile and stained the concrete floors. Next, a new ‘do’ for the walls with a three-toned paint finish. Finally, a furniture plan that leaves all who enter (homeowners or clients) feeling cozy and inclined to do the deal. This transformed room ended up feeling sophisticated yet relaxed while oozing with style and class.”
