A living room is about living, our goal is to make
sure it serves it�s purpose. The first step is to
create comfort with conversational seating that�s
both visually and functionally stimulating.
Leslie exudes warmth. Her family is interested in
music, when gathered together they head for the
living room and sit uncomfortably and share their
love of music. She knew that she needed more
seating. She also knew that she wanted the room
to be warmer. While the deeper color was a stretch
for her, when it went up everyone liked it so much
that they extended it in to the family room.
Lighting is so important in any room. The right
lamp can instantly create a different mood. The
large floor lamps by the window add even more
light. The fabulous chandelier provided balance,
interest and warmth.
Interior moldings provide attitude as well as
architectural interest. When this home was built,
dark molding was popular. One of the easiest ways
to upgrade this room was to paint all the moldings
and trim white.
Dressing the windows makes every room feel more
amazing�especially living rooms. We made the
window wider by putting the panels outside the
frame and taller by putting the rod higher. Fabric
roller shades allowed light in to the room, helped
to protect the floors and added privacy.
