A New Project Introduction #projectindianroad

I met with a new client last week who is looking to refresh their living room & dining room. I'm also going to make a few suggestions to make the for the foyer / entry a little more functional. Today I'm going to share the Living Room plans. The requirement for this space were that it must kid friendly & have plenty of storage for all of the toys that migrate upstairs from the basement. I know this game all to well.

Here's glimpse of the room in question.

There is a 4th wall that is pretty much completely open to the dining room, but I'll share that tomorrow.

I'm so glad this client decided to take me on a tour of the rest of the house because hidden in the basement were a pair of these chairs. Unbelieveable, right! I love these, so they  will be coming up to the living room & replacing the existing love seat in front of the window.

I typically dive straight into the fabrics when beginning a space.  I knew that I wanted something fun, fresh but still be sophisticated for this young family. Once I came across this David Hicks fabric I knew this was going to be the scheme - cream, grey, chartreuse, teal & aqua.

Here is the full fabric & paint selection.

The linen embroidered dot is for the drapery, green leather for a large custom tufted ottoman. The textured grey fabric, teal paint & Turkish Flower are going to transform the basement chairs into greatness!

The side table / chests are actually the Rast dresser from Ikea that we are going to hack, by using a walnut stain on the sides & top, glossy white drawer fronts & some pretty ring pulls. Not only will these look great they will also serves a storage for toys. I love the wall mounted sconces that I found from the Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. as an option to a traditional table lamp, that being said I do enjoy this shapely lamp with the sleek barrel shade. The Stockholm sideboard, also from IKEA, that will be placed below the sofa will also act more toy storage but also hide all the cords, DVD player, etc. that goes along with the TV. 

Well there you have it. Tomorrow I'll show you the dining room.

Stay cool my friends!


Thanks for reading. I enjoy your feedback.
