These clients had just purchased their first home together, and they were looking for ways to combine some of their existing pieces with new items to create a place that they both love.
Before, this entryway was bare and uninviting (although it was certainly dog-approved!).
A bench seat with shoe storage was added to the left of the door, below some artwork and coat hooks. A small vestibule table with a lamp was added on the opposite wall, as a great place to set keys and mail upon entering.
Although the existing furniture fit the space well and was functional, the room itself still felt bland and impersonal.
In the living room, the sectional was recovered in an inviting green chenille fabric and the original cozy leather chairs were given some additional warmth by adding throw pillows and blankets to match. A few new accents were added to the fireplace mantel to tie everything together.
Using the same color story found in the floral fabric on the couch, antique and vintage items were found to add balance and interest to the top of the entertainment center.
Much like the living room, the dining area was functional, yet standard, and did not showcase the personalities of the owners.
The formal dining room received a whole new look – with a new table and chairs and matching hutch – as well as a larger, lighter area rug, and a new chandelier more in keeping with the craftsman style furniture. The piano was moved to the opposite side of the space and adorned with a mirror to brighten the room.
Before, the sunroom that is directly off the living room didn’t have much continuity with the rest of the house.
In addition to updating the furniture with cushions that reflect the colors and patterns used in the living room, artwork was added to the walls to complete the space.
