The homeowner was looking to refresh the look of her busy and dark Living Room. We began by painting over her fuschia walls with a more serene, sophisticated and inviting paint color in a cafe-au-lait color. By painting her room this color, her collection of black/white toile plates stood out in their alcoves. We toned down the existing floral upholstery and brought in more subtle colors like beiges, dark greens and whites. By rearranging her existing furniture, we created a more fluid path and better seating groups.
