I just finished up working on this lovely living room makeover. I had a lot of fun pulling together pieces and putting a fresh new spin on this space. With the help of my client, we were able to transform her living room in two weeks time.
I think the first and most important step to re-designing a room is to change the paint color. I don't know about you but I'm ready for a light color palette to take over the world. Maybe it's the lack of sun exposure during these wintry months but I'm ready to let the light in!
The existing paint color was in the brown family so the first item of business was to decide on a paint color to really brighten up the space. We decided on agreeable gray by sherwin williams. After seeing this color in my sister in laws new house, I have decided this might just be my go to color for a while.
My client wanted to bring in some dimension to the wall behind her couch, we decided on a fairly simple design using wall molding. My client went hard at work re-painting the entire room, including the mantle, adding 6 inch base boards and tackling the wall molding all in a couple day's time. Not only did she work hard on all of the above but she managed to sell all of her existing furniture pieces on the local classifieds so we didn't have to worry about where to move it all. I love people that just get the job done and she is for sure one of them!
My strategy to really change the look of this room was accomplished by adding subtle texture, bringing in new updated furniture and decor pieces, adjustments to the layout, and using a new refreshing color palette.
Nikole was so great to work with, we were both really happy with the end result!
