Colorful Living Room Before & After

Our Work | December 8, 2011

When I first went out to visit Candace her room wasn’t half bad. Here is what it looked like. 
She had these beautiful ikat slipper chairs. Her sofa was nice with beautiful nailhead trim and she already had a fun rug. But she wanted to liven the place up!! 
The living room also opened up to this empty space. 
It was a big empty space. So she need major space planning help. 
Here is the after! 
The first thing we did was paint the walls. This helped the sofa stand out and eliminated all the beige blah that was going on before. And then we needed window treatments! 
We used Wilmington in Multi. Erin made the draperies and I have to say they are so beautiful in the room. My client also found a giant wall clock for above the sofa. 
The blue chevron pillow was made by Erin. The red pillow is from West Elm. 
The coffee table is from Crate and Barrel and the rug is from Williams Sonoma Home.  It was a killer deal. 
The t.v. wall needed something fun so we did a very subtle tone-on-tone wallpaper from Walls. It even has a little shimmer to it which makes it really cool. The amazing lamp is from Robert Abbey. It is large and in charge! 
Now for that pesky area adjacent to the Living Room. We went through a few different ideas for this space but we finally decided on two chairs and a couple of ottomans. 
Candace found these chairs on KSL and totally reupholstered them herself. 
Candace was a dream client to work with and I’m so glad we were able to create a living area that she loves! 
And as always thanks to Jessica Kettle for taking these beautiful pictures!
