Design A Living Room Everyone Wants To Live In!

Before & After Living Room..Oh My!

Everyone has our own taste when it comes to decor.  What works for one homeowner may not work for the next one.  Good designers will work with the assets in a space to create personalized designs.  Six years ago, our interior design firm, Laurel Bledsoe Design, had the opportunity to assist our client with today’s before and after of this living room.

A Large Living Room Has So Many Possibilities for Interior Design

Before we show you the after shots of this living room, let’s talk about what we saw when we first walked in.  We saw an extremely large room with loads of natural light and a fantastic cherry wood floor.  On the flip side, we saw some pretty badly applied moldings and overkill on the drapes.  Take another look.  See the little bloomer like part under the heavy panels?

Wednesday “Wow”!

Look at these windows now.  Naked!  Early in the planning, we discussed adding soft linen panels and I am so glad our client chose not too.  The overdone applied moldings were removed from the walls and the ceiling lacquered so the architectural balance of the long space is restored.  A center fixture gathers in a properly scaled seating area that capitalizes on the views.

A mixture of a custom designed area rug and semi-custom upholstered furniture looks striking on the cherry floor.

The Living Room After

Goodbye ugly fireplace.  Hello to a modern twist in a stunning simple chimney design that is a focal point upon entering the house.  Below, another seating area.  Perfectly intimate, or part of the party.  Such a flexible use of space!

Art & Accessories

Well Placed and Meaningful

To finish this renovation, our clients used both cherished family pieces and some well chosen new selections for the art and accessories.  Large plants complete this amazing transformation.

  1. I just LOVE seeing how you change things up this way. It makes me glad we aren’t thinking of putting any drapes in our Arizona room.

    1. Originally window coverings were for a purpose only…sometimes I wish we’d get back to that!
