Soooo......new paint and new floors made a big difference before we even purchased new furnishings. We used Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter on the walls and a dark hardwood-lookalike flooring that will stand up to many, many dogs, babies in rolling walkers and men with muddy boots from the oil fields of East Texas. Take a look below at the same room!
I chose a soft shade of orange to be the main accent with the different shades of blue. It is a tried and true combo. By keeping the orange to some simple accessories, we can change/update the room easily down the road by switching just a few pieces out. Custom pillows in orange velvet make the base for the sofa. I also had blue and white zebra pillows made with the same orange velvet piping.
The rug has amazing depth and pattern in a tone on tone dark sea-foam green/blue that anchors the room while pulling color from the large, abstract art.
Finally, I chose a dark blue and white patterned upholstery for the chairs. Blue and white is a classic color combination and can be mixed with almost any accent color.
I can't wait to have this room professionally photographed when we add a few more pieces of furniture and lighting.
This client knew the room could be transformed with some work. I'm so glad she trusted me!
