Romantic Living Room

A young couple turns over their unfinished living room to a creative design student who achieves a warm, inviting living space with romantic colors and shabby chic touches.

After: Shabby Chic Upgrade

The pumpkin-colored walls are warm and inviting. The TV armoire has cabinets with pull-out baskets and a curtain to hide the TV. The new window seat offers additional storage under a plaid cushion in colors that contrast with the pumpkin walls. The custom furniture is painted and distressed for a homey, lived-in feel. New curtains soften the previously bare windows.
