Jonathan Says…

I recently did a virtual makeover for an exasperated homeowner; she loves her home and it has so many memories, but it just feels tired. Every time she sees beautiful designs in a magazine or one of our T.V. shows, she thinks about how her home doesn’t function for her.

She wants to reinvigorate her living room so her kids will visit so often that they never leave. Fortunately, the makeover would be very simple because the footprint of her home is a good one, so brightening things up, decluttering, and adding an updated focal point feature wall would do the trick. We decided to create an upscale, luxuriously loungy family space.

This reimagined living room is the perfect combination of cozy meets modern. This space is perfect for entertaining guests or simply lounging at home. The rustic beams and the stone fireplace make the space welcoming, while the clean lines and finishes add a modern flare.

Because there are no windows in the room, we kept most of the furniture, like the armchairs, neutral and bright, but the clean lines and gold finish elevate the design. To introduce color, we opted for a rich navy sofa. The blue and cream rug helps tie together all the colors and finishes and really brings the room together.

The homeowner and I sense a lot of laughs, great gatherings and new memories being made in this space.
