Home Away From Home: Living With Options

23 Nov

I recently finished a Home Away From Home project with two color options for the living room. It’s always nice to show a client how versatile their existing pieces can be with just a few simple changes.  This living room has dark espresso wood floors, a fresh coat of soft blue paint on the walls and a fabulous creme sofa to anchor the space.  Here are the additions we suggested!


With such simple basics in place, adding a pop of color and pattern will bring the room into the eclectic chic feel my client is after.  The silk drapes bring in a touch of sophistication while the warmer green hue is fun and a great accent against the blue walls.  By using pillows and x-benches to bring in more of the green and teal accent color, this room screams chic!

If a softer look & feel is what my client is more comfortable with, this palette is going to be the best choice.  By using an eclectic patterned drape, we are able to set the stage for the blue and yellow accents.  When we change out the rug with something more simple but still graphic, the overall feel stays eclectic.  I love mixing patterns in a room, it keeps you eye moving.  And by keeping the pattern similar in color, they will relate well to each other.

Drapes In Boteh Jade:  I love the fact that we can do the drapes or roman shade.  I also like the white with blue accent roman shade mixed with the drapes.
