Room reveal time! Yay!
I’m again delighted to have another client project to share today – this modern + minimal + scandi living room! I recently shared the dining room from the same home and was excited to tackle their living room, which needed a bit of love and some design/style direction.
Let’s check out how the room looked before:
My clients had good taste (and we kept some pieces in place) but they also had some hand-me-downs and dated pieces (I’m looking at you, chairs…) which made the space feel a bit hodge-podge.
I sketched out several different options, all with Scandinavian, modern and minimal vibes.
And ultimately, decided to go in this direction:
And here is the real life version of that sketch:
To keep the entire first floor cohesive, we painted all the walls Benjamin Moore Grey Owl and updated most of the furniture and decor apart from their tv set-up. I love the media console they already had so we kept it as the design direction of that fit more into the overall plan for the room.
I love the graphic punch from the rug and how it grounds the space with color and texture. I also had to sneak in a fur baby because cute dogs and cats make spaces better!
They already had that really cool map art so I took inspiration from it and translated those clean lines and simplicity into the design choices for the rest of the room. We turned to West Elm again for the lighting and installed that amazing Mid-Century chandelier. It gives the space instant character with the mix of metals and those amazing curves!
The stylist in me wants to add more things and make it feel…well…more ‘styled’ but when I step back and really look, I love the simplicity. The space feels bright, open and most importantly, comfortable and the style ain’t so bad too! Not to mention, my clients are happy so win-win!
Stay tuned for one more room reveal from this home!
And as usual, I’ve rounded up all the sources below!
