When we first met these clients, we knew we wanted to do something special for their family. Having recently moved to their new home, they were stumped on what to do with this room. A cozy space for the whole family to hang out was at the top of their priority list.
You can tell from this photo that the space originally looked lifeless and dull. There wasn’t a whole lot going on in there as the space was mostly unused.
First things first, the fireplace and mantle needed a serious overhaul. Out with the old and in with the new! We worked with our friend @vikingfloorsandfinishing to create a modern mantle, cabinets and floating shelves on a budget. We are so happy with how it all turned out. We wanted to keep this area white with a wooden accent (countertops) and a pop of gold (cabinet hardware).
As far as furnishing the space, we began brainstorming and coming up with the perfect style. Modern, bright, cozy and kid friendly were occurring words in the process. We started off by finding the perfect loveseat. The wall it would go against was not very wide, so it took some searching to find the perfect fit. With sleek, walnut legs and light charcoal cushions, we knew this mid-century modern loveseat was the one!
We kept all of our furniture neutral because we knew that the rug was going to be the real showstopper. After showing our client this rug, there was no other rug that could compare, so naturally it HAD to be a part of this room. As you can see, it’s beautiful deep blue shade with yellow, rose and burgundy accents. After unrolling the rug, we completely fell in love with it.
Lastly, we added in a few accents to liven up the space but also leave room for our client to unpack her boxes and put some of her previous décor up. We really couldn’t be happier with the results of this project and we are especially happy that this sweet family gets a new place to spend reading bedtime stories, playing board games or just enjoying conversation over a glass of wine!
If you are in the Fraser Valley and are looking to have a space in your home refreshed, don’t hesitate to reach out!
