This client’s original living room had a mixing style.  The original drapery was quite old-school and sofa was  Italian modern.  After talking to the client and getting to know what she favors, we decide a modern classic style for this room.  Here is what we did:

  1. Use brass drapery rod to give the window treatment a clean modern classic feeling.
  2. Pale-blue french-pleatED silk drapery truly upgrades  the room and adds a touch of classy to the space.
  3. The upholstered earthy-tone velvet clean-line tuxedo sofa is chic, modern yet inviting.
  4. The modernized alabaster  table lamp a with light gold silk shade nicely blends in the new soft  color palette.
  5. The pop of pillow colors and patterns truly made the room alive and fashionable.

The end result is such a adorable living room with a feminine touch.  and it is youthful, light  and interesting.

8 Steps to Transform a living Room

The house is located in West LA. The client bought it last year and decided to give it a face-lift without too much construction going on. Even though the house was in a shabby condition, it has a very good bone. We decided to keep most of its original structures.  Modern classic  is what we  came up with and we believe the style will truly reflect client’s taste. Here are the major features we did for the living room:

1.  Replaced the original carpet with dark walnut wood flooring to ground the room with a timeless classic style.

2. Removed the drop ceiling to make the space airy.

3. Installed wall panels and painted them in Tiffany Blue—fashionable yet classy.  All moldings and trims were also painted in Tiffany Blue.  Applying the same color on the trims and walls will unify the whole room and create tranquil backdrop for the later furnishings.

4. Installed new marble mantle.  The color and the vein on the marble are  kind of talking to the rest furnishings.

5. Applied different shades and textures of cream and gray on furniture to layer the space without tiring eyes.

6. Furnishing the room with modern pieces such as the art over the fireplace and  tailored light-gray roman shades.

7. The big floral pattern on the area rug contrasts with all neutrals and adds a sense of playfulness.

8. Fresh floral arrangements and green plants bring the life into the space.

Please let us know what you think.  If you are interested in getting the whole room  look or any pieces we used here, please email  us at y.a.hong@hotmail.com.
