A New Living Room Makeover
This professional working couple’s living room was long since overdue for an update. Although they have been in this Lake Lanier home for over 17 years, their busy schedules along with the care of an aging parent have prevented them from turning this room into a space they can really use and enjoy.
The pieces in this room were not a reflection of the clients’ tastes, and they had found themselves avoiding the space. The outdated, floral upholstered sofa and old-fashioned armchairs were neither comfortable nor in very good condition. The organ was placed there but was not being used and taking up space unnecessarily.
They decided to hire an interior designer from North Atlanta. After some conversation with the homeowners and assessing the surrounding areas, we came up with a plan to transform this room into a place where they could read and relax enjoying the beautiful treetop views.
We started by suggesting a subtle change in paint color to warm up the room from the basic “builder white”. We then selected a sofa in a neutral toned fabric and two comfortable, appropriately scaled chairs to create an inviting conversational area. We added a cocktail ottoman in a soft velvety shade of green instead of a coffee table. Some accent pillows in a lively, fresh, floral palette give some color to the room. A stylish bench was placed underneath a favorite piece of artwork and elegant but understated drapery panels in a neutral silk fabric simply frame the beautiful view outside.
By adding appropriate tables and lighting where needed, the room now beckons the homeowners in. They have found it a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day!
