Living Room E-Design - Part 2

Yesterday I had shown you two different boards that I had proposed to an e-design client.

My client really loved the look of the first design board, so we started here:


And we worked our way to here:


Not a ton of changes but a few tweaks to push this look to a BAM. Julie definitely wanted a rug to layer on top of the wall-to-wall, but she really wanted something soft to the touch so I switched that up and went with a pile. I also really like how the color and pattern in the rug works with the rest of the vibe.

We also switched up the lighting. We went from the black pharmacy lamp to a swing-arm lamp. As much as I liked the look of the pharmacy lamp, you can never go wrong with the swing-arm style. Classic. You'll also see that we added in a mercury glass table lamp. I thought this room needed a touch of the smooth and shiny, and this lamp fit the bill.

And lastly, we switched out the stools. The new stools have exactly the look we were going for - black seats with a wooden frame (and no extra DIY work needed to be done - a big plus).

So there you have it - I'm excited to see the progress that Julie makes on this room. 

What do you think of the updates?

  6. Love where this is going, Holly. My favorite switch out is the stools - the new ones are gorgeous... I agree, the swing arm lamp is a classic and it definitely works, but oh, how I looove the black pharmacy lamp!
