Living Room Transformation
This fun-loving couple was eager to transform their living room into one that reflected their personalities and love of color, and incorporated elements of their favorite design aesthetic. This room is primarily used for watching TV and movies but is also used for entertaining as it is in the same room as the kitchen.
The color palette and general vibe needed to flow with the adjoining rooms, and they wanted to be able to display treasured photos and mementos. The addition of a fireplace with a standout surround was the icing on the cake!

Like most projects it isn't pretty, but it's a start!
The room wasn't centered properly giving excessive circulation in unneeded areas. It was time to open the space up and use the most of the square footage this space has to offer. By creating a focal point with a fireplace insert and TV mounted above it we can change the orientation of the seating for better flow versus crowded in a corner.
This couple has a love for midcentury modern design and colorful rooms. They wanted a living room that was energizing and evoked joy, but in a color palette that tied into the kitchen and neighboring rooms. The color teal runs throughout the main level as an accent, with splashes of pink and orange. This space is a great room, with a kitchen and dining area for entertaining. They wanted to add a fireplace feature on the living room side with a mounted TV for movie nights.
We needed to nail down the look and feel of the project.
This young couple wanted to bring in bold pops of color, but also add warmth with some organic elements. They wanted comfortable furnishings with enough seating to entertain, and wanted to create a wow wall incorporating their fireplace. The rooms did not let in much natural light, so they wanted to add fixtures that were functional but also glammed up the room.
Flat lays allow designers to showcase the exact fabrics, finishes, paint swatches, flooring samples, and other physical elements specified for a design scheme. This provides an authentic and tangible representation of the look and feel.

I created two options for the couple utilizing the accent colors in the home. The “Soft Oasis” board features a muted color palette of calming shades of teal and pink and some organic elements to add warmth. These selections mirror the colors used in their dining area, making the great room space feel cohesive.

I also gave them a completly different option so they had two different choices to choose from. The “Colorful Mod” collection focuses on richer hues and a more masculine vibe, and includes the husband’s favorite color of orange. This color palette more closely plays off of the colors seen in the adjacent game room.
