This rug will be staying in the living room. It's got a lot of great colors and I knew I wanted to bring in some of that blue in the rug.
The client I'm working with on this project knows me very well. We've worked together for a while and when she found out I had started my own decorating venture she was ready to have me come help her out with a room that her and her husband have been wanting to do something with for a long time.
They'd done a lot to their home since they moved in, but this living room never really got much attention. The goal for this room is to make it a cozy space that they can read and relax but also serve as a space to entertain a few friends when they come over as well.
Key items for this space: new sofa, chairs, lighting, pillows, coffee table/ottoman, refreshing the built-ins, and maybe a few other fun surprises.
Here is the design concept board that I drafted for my client:
The chairs are most likely going to be a solid light blue fabric - similar to the blue you see at the right there on the board. The sofa is going to be an off white fabric. The pillows are going to be fun - a mix of the botanical print, the geometric, and the small scale fabric.
Here's another look at the fabrics and elements I've proposed for the room. You'll notice that I really wanted to play with textures here. The ottoman is most likely going to be leather, but a different color than what I have shown below. Bringing some plants and natural materials will really bring this room to life.
My client was really pleased with the board and excited to get started. That moment where the look in their eye shows a "YES" after presenting is a great great feeling.
I hope to share more updates with you on this soon.
We had a really great weekend of relaxing and hanging out with family. My two nephews both play soccer so we had the chance to see both of their games on Sunday which was so much fun. Hope your weekend was a good one!
