Formal Living Room Update: A Design Connection, Inc. Featured Project
This living room went from empty and unused to formal and fabulous. How did we do it? Read the design story and see all of the project pictures here!In 2016, my clients found their perfect home. This large, classic-styled home featured beautiful moldings, cabinetry, and craftsmanship, but was in need of an update. I was thrilled to assist with the new designs and renovations! A warm gray color was chosen for the walls and coffered ceiling, setting the stage for the design additions to come.
The clients wanted a formally dressed living room with comfortable, elegant furniture to accommodate entertaining multiple guests. The scale of this space allows for many furniture groupings. As with all of our projects, we created a space plan accounting for every inch, guaranteeing the new furnishings are sized perfectly for this unique space.
The furnishings were sized to fit the space perfectly and the fabrics were chosen with daily use and easy-cleaning in mind. The many layers of textured and printed fabrics add visual interest and emulate the clients’ collective style.
Although the windows were beautiful on their own, they looked too bare without window treatments. Gray linens were chosen with a contrasting accent band, adding a soft highlight to each window. Here’s a shot of the drapes right before installation:
The new draperies define the space while adding softness and a bit of drama. A massive area rug completes the look and adds warmth and elegance to this beautiful formal living room.
The clients love the new furnishings in their living room:
“We were at loss for how to make it look elegant, beautiful, and yet functional. Arlene got the style of the space.”
