This is a design I created for a client ages ago. She had a very small budget, but she also had me on her side to maximize it ‘creatively’. Dontcha looove these flowing soft sheer curtains? We added floating wood shelves .. giving height to the wall to balance the long TV stand and her TV:
Here’s the furniture placement I created for her. We purchased all new furniture/accessories, except minus the people sculpture she already had (see above), TV, books, orange dishes, and 1 poster print ….
She loved her 1 poster print, sooooo you know what that means right??? = I ENHANCE what my clients LOVE, so I ended up finding two more poster prints (POPS of colors) similar to her original to create a set, and had it framed in black to pick up (color balance) the dark color lines of her 3 tier tables:
I remember my client being sooo excited when I surprised her with a dining area as I showed her the design (before I came into the picture, she didn’t think she would ever have a dining space in her room). The placement was perfect since it was near her kitchen! Designed with open-back chairs so they look spacious, cool looking candle-holders, small mirror frames for visual interest, and did you spot the oooh so pretty (cool + funky) pendant lamp? :
Here’s how the room looked b/4 it was transformed w/my design, see the black fireplace cover and plain solid wall over the fireplace cover?:
On mantle we added more pop pop of you know what .. color + uniqueness:
So, how about you …. do you have lots or lil bits of pop of colors in your living room?
This week is FULL of Onsite Consultations, including one today in Riverdale (which I will drive to). Then tomorrow in Manhattan (which I will metro it so I can do work on the train = multi-task)! Have a BEAUTIFUL DAY!!!
