S+S E-design: A Sunny Disposition

So, our most recent E-design client is the most lovely newlywed. She and her hubby have a gorgeous home but wanted a little assistance on what direction to take in their living room. Their space is large, dramatic and absolutely gorgeous. After a consultation and looking through images of both her home and her favorite spaces, we new exactly what direction to take in the room! We knew color, we knew pattern, we knew major impact. 

Let's start with the furniture. Currently, they have a sectional that just does not fit the space properly, so they were looking to sell it and get some new furniture. They wanted to have lots of seating for guests but also keep the costs somewhat low. Our solution? An ikea couch and chaise lounge! The chaise lounge fits a large window area to a tee. And who doesn't love a chaise lounge?! Also, for seating, we suggested two rattan chairs (not seen here), also Ikea, covered with sheepskin throws, also Ikea, to zhush the area up and also create more economical seating. Luckily for us, our darling client is up for DIY's. We have been scouring Craig's list in her area for a credenza and side tables to paint. We are thinking yellow...Repainting existing furniture obviously saves a ton of money and you are left with a unique piece that no one else has! 

On to the wall accessories. So again, we are lucky, because our client already has some fabulous pieces. We decided to create major drama in the room, we are going to do a mirrored gallery wall. She already had some amazingly unique mirrors that were just waiting to be shown off. We cannot wait to see the end result with all of the mirrors together! Another special request from our client, as they are newlyweds, they wanted to showcase some of their to die for wedding photography. We love the look in the mirrored frames. Gorgeous pictures with coordinating colors to the space. 

For the accessories, on the fireplace we love the addition of the turquoise candlesticks, the personalized initial and we are even thinking a large painted canvas for a little pop of art. She also has some amazing graphic prints that we are dying to layer in. As far as the pillows go we went ultra graphic! With the walls being a light creamy grey, we wanted to pull in major pattern and we think we achieved that. Topped off with a gorgeous pop of yellow lamp and some low key graphic drapery. 

We. are. in. love. We hope they are too (well we know they are with each other, but with our design as well!). We cannot wait to see the finished product!
