Modern and Earthy Living Room

Karen McAloon helps a couple meld organic style with modern design as they redesign their living room.

Before: Color Challenged and Cluttered

The Moriconis think they are a bit color-phobic, as evidenced by the black and white couches, white-on-white fireplace and white walls, but there are also items with bright colors sprinkled throughout, Karen points out. "Color on its own doesn't have a style. It's what you pair it with that gives it a style," she says. Another issue with this living room are the bookcases to the right of the fireplace, beneath the window — clearing out all that clutter will really open up the space.
