We removed the valances (always a good idea to make the ceiling seem taller and to bring in more light)
I chose a gorgeous Oriental from the Gallery of Oriental Rugs and we went with a larger size to make the room feel even bigger. I chose a sectional in a performance fabric in a textured cream and added nail heads for detail.
I kept their coffee table because I liked the size and the wood element. I chose a tray, some pretty coffee table books and accessories to dress it up.
Lacefield pillows and custom sewn pillows in watery fabrics layer the sectional.
The room boasts a great deal of built-ins for storage, components and a hidden bar.
They were originally finished in a whitewashed pickled finish that dated the look and made the room feel heavy. We had them sprayed in an ivory satin for a factory finish. With new glass knobs, these built-ins look like brand new cabinetry for a fraction of the cost.
A custom spool chair in a driftwood finish adds extra seating and the client's end tables were reused, just repositioned.
Gorgeous lighting from Currey and Company flank the sectional and add pops of color to the neutral palette.
Now the beautiful outdoors (can you believe this view?)and now the soothing indoors feel like one open space....
