It all started with a piece of art.
Our client had a sofa, a chair and a newly renovated living room, but two piece of furniture does not make for a beautiful living room. This design started with a piece of art. The bold teal, and subtle cream and gold inspired the color palette for this grey living room.
How lovely is this abstract piece? We love that it has an ocean feel with “waves” and a sort of “current” running through it. Very tranquil for a room designed to relax in.
The teal front he art was reintroduced in the accessories. This ceramic vase was the perfect pop of color on the other side of the room to balance out the space.
We continued the teal in the pillows and throw picking up on the many shades of teal in the piece of art. There is also a subtle hint of teal and gold in the fabric on the custom Roman shades. How pretty is that “Moroccan tile” pattern in the fabric? We love the new twist on an old classic!
The white washed grey table provides beautiful contrast against the dark grey sofa. We love this piece because its is functional, but also has great style. We styled the table with a few great accessories that pick up on the subtle tones from the art.
The lamp tables highlight the white wash finish from the cocktail table, and the ceramic lamps pick up a subtle shade of blue to carry on the color palette from the art. We love the proportions of this vignette. Nothing makes a room feel smaller than the wrong proportion of furniture!
Directly across from the piece of art is a gorgeous TV console in a warm washed wood. This finish picks up on the tones in the sofa. We accessorized it with a pop of color in the ceramic vase and a bit of greenery. The remaining items pick up on the “driftwood” look of the washed pieces of furniture and the dark metal base of the lamp tables. Plus, we always love a few stacks of books in our accessories.
All in all, we love this room. We’re always happy to work with clients existing pieces to help make them work in a room while finishing the design.
