Wanting to keep the comfort of their home, yet bring its design into this century, these homeowners enlisted the help of Design Connection, Inc. to update their great room. Usually, we take measurements, create a digital footprint of each room and come up with a space plan before we start having fun selecting colors and fabrics. These homeowners happened to fall in love with a bolt of fabric that was sitting on a shelf in my office. This fabric swatch set the design in motion and was selected for the drapery, sitting chair and throw pillows.

Wanting to maintain the traditional look of their eye-catching fireplace, we decided against mounting the TV above the mantel. We designed custom cabinets that flank each side of the fireplace and discreetly house the television components. By faux painting these cabinets using the color of the surrounding walls, this dominating feature wall effortlessly blends in with the rest of this space. The dark aqua accent wall brings this room to life as a focal point against the brick fireplace and is paired perfectly with the colors in the fabrics and drapery.

Because this room is used for lots of lounging and relaxing, creating comfortable custom furnishings was key in this design. Our clients love the new leather ottoman that is large enough to share and enjoy from nearly every seat in this living space. The updated lamps with large, round shades, the metallic wall art and accessories complete the look of this newly transformed, comfortable living space by Design Connection, Inc.

A digital footprint is created for every room that we design, regardless of the scale of the project. From new construction and architectural designs to one-room updates like this living room revamp, at Design Connection, Inc., every square inch is considered when planning our designs. Before we look at colors and fabrics, we first calculate the perfect sized furniture to fit your space and your needs.
