I've had a number of youth oriented design projects lately, so this recent client e-design project for a living room/entryway space was a great detour. My clients Laura and her husband recently purchased their first home and were looking to decorate their living room/entryway. I presented them with a sophisticated e-design plan and it turned out beautifully!
Laura's living room/entryway space had a couple challenges to address. First, was that the room is long and narrow and space needed to be carved out to pass-through to the front door, kitchen, and bedrooms. Second, as the living room was going to be utilized as both an entertaining space, as well as a waiting area for private music lessons (My clients are brilliant musicians!), they needed to maximize the limited space for seating.
The color scheme requested included shades of blue, white, and neutral tones. Right up my alley! Their new home already had a den so Laura requested a more sophisticated space with a little more finesse. Here is the e-design board I presented!
As you can see, I chose a neutral beige sofa to allow the colorful blue pillows to really pop. An upholstered ottoman coffee table provides additional seating if necessary. Navy blue low profile chairs round out the living room seating while only taking up a small space footprint. Laura and her husband own a dark toned dining room table, so I carried the dark wood tone through the living room with espresso end tables. I chose brushed gold tones for the entryway table and wall mirror, and carried out the gold accents through the living room space in the lamps, tray table, and the starburst statement mirror above the fireplace. A light blue and white traditional oriental rug adds the finishing touch to the whole space. Below is the mood board I presented.
Here is the floor plan. Remember we had a narrow space to work with.
I just love a blue and white color schemeI can't wait to see pictures of the final space!
