Our goal was to keep the existing furniture and encourage the homeowners to use the room.

We wanted to warm up the room to make it welcoming for the family and their guests.

The original placement of the area rug, gave the impression of a runway leading you to the sofa on the distant wall.

The original colors in the room were mauve, blue and pale green.  The area rug had several other colors to work with and we took our cue from there. 

 

 

We chose Mountain Laurel by Benjamin Moore for the wall color and a paprika red color to add in accents.

The main focus was the placement of the area rug.  Putting it on an angel takes away the runway look and also allows more of the beautiful wood floor to show.

Pulling the furniture away from the walls at the same angle as the rug invites you in.

Eliminating one of the matching tables (moved to the entry) and bringing in the table from the entry along with a different lamp creates more interest in the overall appearance.

The finishing touches of art and accessories (found elsewhere in the home) pull the room together.  The final touch was the fresh flowers and plants that will add life to any room.
