Before: Dark and Dreary
The dark color choices and oversized furniture made the living room seem small and dreary before.
After: Vibrant and Balanced
A lighter color palette and properly scaled furniture creates a space that feels more balanced and welcoming.
Extra-Long Entertainment Center
An extra-long entertainment center balances the length of the oversized leather sofa on the opposite wall.
Wall Art Lends a Finishing Touch
Coordinating artwork creates visual flow between the design of the living room and the adjacent kitchen and unites the overall design.
Semi-Custom Throw Pillows
The budget could not accommodate custom pillows, so ready made pillows were purchased and customized instead. Their color helps break up the look of the extra-long sofa.
Funky, Fresh, Floral Upholstery
Armless chairs upholstered in a modern floral fabric offer the homeowner the contemporary design she was seeking.
