After: Contemporary Living Room
After careful consideration, the Gallonios decide that Karen Ziccardi has the most colorful and unique presentation that best suits their desires for the room. She transforms a plain, outdated space into a clean, contemporary room with modern flair. A better furniture layout allows for easier flow when entertaining larger groups while placement of a shapely custom sofa takes advantage of the fireplace. Various fabrics, art, plants and accessory pieces are used throughout the room to add color and life, and the updated black fireplace surround creates an artistic focal point with timeless style. Finally, new recessed and display lighting is used to add warmth and make the room more inviting and dramatic.
