The pattern of the rug pushed the client’s comfort zone a bit, but once they saw how it tied the room together, they grew to really love it!
We chose a collection of grey and white pillows with touches of red and gold to pull in just a bit of color and texture.
The client’s original nightstands were much too tall and narrow, and the lamps much too large. We selected new nightstands with a better scale and replaced the lamps with classic sconces.
Styling nightstands with sconces can be a challenge, because there is a large space to fill between the nightstand and the light. We addressed this issue by hanging a black and white framed photo below each sconce, then styled the nightstands with the client’s photos and books.
The client was original interested in painting the fireplace mantle because they don’t love the yellow time of the wood, but since it matches all of the other wood in the house, we quickly decided it would be a better choice to keep the wood and find a way to incorporate its yellow tone into the room.
The large painting of aspens above the dresser was in the original room, but it feels like much more of a focal point in the redesigned space! And the yellow and orange leaves now coordinate with the other golden tones in the space.
