I have a recent Edesign to share with you today. My client had been living in her home for about 7 years and never felt like she “finished” decorating. She was looking to add some decorative items in her living room, attached eat in kitchen, and entry, but wasn’t sure how to make everything flow without being too “matchy”.
She’s drawn toward the country and coastal look from Pottery Barn, Home Decorators, and Coastal Living. Our goal was to create a neutral, comfortable room that looks “finished” without being too modern.
She already has the main furniture: a neutral sectional, TV cabinet, and dining table. She also wanted to keep the existing wall color which is a light creamy yellow in the living room, a warm beige in the entry and hall area, and a warm green in the kitchen. Keeping those colors in mind, as well as their 3 adorable kiddos, I came up with a couple design boards for her living room.
There is a fireplace commanding attention so I flanked it with two bookshelves to store toys in baskets, books, and other decorative items. I also suggested the botanical prints above the bookshelves to tie in the green walls from the adjoining kitchen. This room has tall ceilings, so I suggested the mirror placed vertically above the fireplace to accentuate the height as well as to reflect light, allowing your eye to move naturally around the room.
She has a couple of end tables and a sofa table to be accessorized so I suggested a few items to give her some ideas (kid friendly of course).
