Continuing on with the new project from the previous post, I’m especially excited to share the living room with you.
I’m really enjoying working on rooms with more furniture recently. Kitchens and baths have their place in my heart, too, but I especially love creating a sensorial space with textural finishes and a restrained color palette on fabrics and flooring, something that’s easily expressed through furnishings.
One of my most favorite features of this room is the chandelier. It imitates the shape of the molding on the arched windows and ties in traditional style with this family’s modern sensibilities.
Another great touch is the built-ins. This family really loves books. You could also display sculptures, framed art, or a treasured collection and it all looks neat and pulled together contained on these elegant shelves.
The drawers below and the side cabinets contain home electronics, games, and media, a satisfying balance of display and conceal in stylish living room storage for a modern family.
