Taking a Room to the Finish

You buy a sofa and paint your walls, but your room just doesn’t feel finished. As a design firm, we love to come into a space that the client just can’t get to feel done and take the room to the finish.  There is definitely a difference between a complete room and a styled room, and that is just what we did in this purple and grey living room.

Our client already owned a sofa, chair, and tv console.  She had recently opened up walls and painted the room a soothing grey, but it just didn’t feel done.

We started by grounding the room with an area rug.  The cream in the rug brightened up the room and provided nice contrast against the grey furniture. We also selected a gorgeous piece of abstract art that provided a pop of color and tied into the color palette of the dining room which is open to this space through the kitchen.

Near the front door, we created a sort of “mudroom” by adding a coat rack and small bench since this is where you enter the home.  We also added a doormat that both added a pop of color and allowed a place to wipe off shoes before stepping onto the cream and grey rug.

A leather ottoman,  drink table and floor lamp were added to create this cozy vignette along with a second door mat to be placed in front of the slider.

The last piece of the puzzle was to accessorize the space.  These beautiful vases and urns pick up the blue from the art and balance the mantle well.

Lisa Scheff listened to my needs and came up with a very creative kitchen floor plan that transformed an antiquated kitchen “add on” into a fully functional space with maximum storage. Her out of the box thinking helped me realize that removing a chimney was the key to creating the space I wanted – a solution I would not have come up with on my own. Armed with Lisa’s floor plan, I was able to successfully orchestrate our kitchen renovation. I highly recommend her.
