I always love looking at “Before and After” stories in interior design magazines and on blogs. I hope that you do too! Today I’m sharing a recent project where we transformed a living room in Lafayette, CA. The transformation is full of color and was inspired by a 20 piece art series that my client inherited.
Here’s the before pic:
For a family of 5, the living room served as not only a place to entertain guests, but also a room for the family to lounge and watch TV together. When my client inherited a stunning abstract art series, she wanted a place to display it, and hired us to create a room around it! You know that we love color and comfort — so we were so excited for this project!
At our first meeting, we laid out the art series on the floor to get an idea of scale and color:
We decided to go bold with the fabrics for the furniture and install the art on the back wall. When you enter the room you are now greeted with a ‘wow’ factor!
I love the play of the vibrant blue solid sofas on the neutral abstract patterned rug. And of course, we needed to add in an accent chair that was a work of art in itself.
Adding original art into your decor is a game changer. Original art is unique, and one of a kind. Select art that speaks to you….(you will know when you find it). If you find art that you love….it will be a treasure that you can pass on to your family. Hence, the reason for this new room design!
