Clean and Calm~Gray and tan living room

"Clean and calm" describes today's featured online design plan (currently accepting new reservations). This project was for a gorgeous living room belonging to a wonderful, young family.  From their responses to questions on my client questionnaire, we were able to learn a lot about our clients and their lifestyle.  They also provided a link to their Pinterest pins boards which gave us insight into their style preferences.  They prefer a simple, clean, uncluttered aesthetic…not too many patterns, soft subtle colors and transitional style (upholstery over slipcovers). 

Photos and measurements of their space gave us all the information we needed to create a custom design plan for their uniquely shaped living room…




We began this project with a large geometric patterned area rug,  light neutral colored sofa/love seat and an amazing gray linen upholstered chair/ottoman.  For contrast and sophistication, we added dark wood, clean line, transitional style occasional tables.  

The custom color palette for this space was based on the clients amazing stone fireplace.  The upholstery, rug, accessories and art we chose reflected gorgeous tones found in the natural stone.





Design Tip:
For symmetry, we recommended a pair of lamps flanking the sofa.  In an asymmetrical space,  accessories and furniture placement can create the illusion of symmetry.






A carefully chosen mix of pillows brought texture, pattern and color to the space.  The collection of pillows we curated for this design can be mixed and matched as the client desires.






For natural texture and greenery, we recommended this pair of potted boxwood (available in my shop, click here for details). 

Design Tip:
 If you have trouble keeping plants alive but love the look of a real plant, these are the perfect solution.  They are made from real, preserved boxwood.  All they require is a light mist of water every 30 days to keep them looking fresh.  


  To bring height to the wall opposite her large, amazing fireplace we suggested placing these over a new pop-up flatscreen tv console…






Scale was important in this design, the room is large and the stone fireplace has an amazing presence.  The client prefers clean, uncluttered spaces. Therefore, it was important to use large scale pieces.  In this project, the "bigger is better" and "less is more" philosophies were applied.
