A Touch of Blush

The soft neutral palette stays interesting with a lot of different textures: chenille, faux fur, clear lucite metallic threads, polished chintz, chrome, rustic fir wood, sleek mahogany, mirrors, and mercury glass. Curves and angles combine with the textures to create a comfortable and elegant living room.

Project Overview:

Everything was golden brown! This very traditional two story living room was empty and dull even with lots of windows. The new owners are young and wanted a contemporary setting for entertaining, but still suitable for their young children. The original plan was to replace the carpeting with hardwood floors, but as we progressed on the project the hardwood floors were postponed, so we adjusted. The client showed me several pictures of neutral rooms with curved upholstery that she liked.

A Touch of Blush

The soft neutral palette stays interesting with a lot of different textures:

  • Furry rose pillows on the herringbone grey kid-friendly sofa.
  • Metallic in the polished chintz chair fabric.
  • Soft chenille pillows on the velour curved settee.
  • Acrylic legs on the clover ottoman and in the lamps.
  • Bright chrome and glass in the accent tables and chandelier.
  • Rustic fir wood in the mirror that perfectly fits the existing frame molding over the fireplace.
  • Mercury glass in the mantel accessories.
  • Dark mahogany trim on the chairs and end table.
  • Metallic threads in the drapery fabric and accent tassels.
