Before & After: Vibrant Living Room
You know how much I love a good before and after! Take a peek at my latest transformation.
My clients love to entertain, but their space didn’t reflect that energy. They tapped me to inject it with color and a whole lot of life.
Inspiration often starts small. The design concept for this room came from a plate, believe it or not! The plate featured rich pinky-red, blue and creamy yellow flowers. Since my clients already loved and owned it, I knew the colors would transfer beautifully to the living room.
After determining the color palette, I tackled the spatial plan. The arrangement had to provide ample seating without closing the room off to the rest of the home. I decided to go with a concave sofa, which wraps the room like a horseshoe. Here’s a tip: seating areas should always create a circular or horseshoe shape; it makes guests feel instantly comfortable and allows everyone to see each other. Pairs of side chairs and corner-backed chairs complete the arrangement.
As you can see, there are a lot of solid colors at play in this room. In fact it almost has a color blocked feeling. The result is a welcoming, sophisticated room that begs for an afternoon tea or a great cocktail party.
