This little living room was very ready for an update. I was so very glad to have this opportunity to work with these clients again. She loves greens and together this couple had chosen these hand made teal vases on an outing. They were very comfortable to use them to inspire their new room. (notice vase in wall cut-out)





After considering a desk or etegere for this wall, my clients decided on this piece that would house their family photos as well as a few collections that she loves. The openness kept it from overtaking this smaller room.

After a few layout plans were discussed, they chose this one:

Molitor Plan

Here are the furniture pieces that we chose. The ottoman is actually a storage ottoman.


And after some options, these Fabrics:

Fabric/ starting top/ Drapery/ Chairs/ Sofa/ Pillows

Fabric/ starting top/ Drapery/ Chairs/ Sofa/ Pillows

It was important that the room not be too formal…more casual and yet a “casual elegance”. We wanted the room to be very welcoming and inviting to guests. The teal chair fabric is a very strong microfiber suede type texture without a nap.The sofa and drapery were both a bit nubby to add to that comfortable feel.  We chuckled about the pillow fabric, as it gave it a bit of mid-century vibe (“Mad Men”)!

Another design secret we used on this room was to keep the floor and walls a similar neutral color. This helps keep the eye flowing around the room. The room color is by Benjamin Moore and is called ” Crown Point Sand”. The carpeting is a very durable nylon that we used throughout her home. This company has wonderful quality wools and nylons that I am able to offer to clients at great discounts (many other manufacturers too for every type of flooring with better pricing than big box stores!).

These are the end tables that they chose:

And this beautiful mirror to hang above the sofa that would not only be a great focal point but add the reflection of the etegere when you walked into the room from the entryway.
