I finished another living room design project a few weeks back that I wanted to share with you!
- Start with adding some art to the walls and a rug on the floor
- Reupholster her matching slipper chairs (a great flea market find), or find affordable replacements
- Have a comfortable space to be able to put her feet up to read and look out her big sunny window
- Add a small desk so she can do work on her laptop in the room
I turned again to my good friend Better Homes and Gardens for color palette options. Lisa chose this soothing, feminine palette of soft lilac and grey (in her case, we used the color from the tan couch), with pops of violet, raspberry and chartreuse.

Because Lisa's living room is so nice and sunny, I wanted to bring a bit of the outdoors in with come natural elements like the fiddle head fig plant, sea grass rug, and vintage botanical prints. The large wall behind the couch called for a sizable piece of art so I chose to group four of the 11x14 botanical prints in her color palette, framed with bright chartreuse frames. I had fun mixing patterns and colors in her pillows and accent chair fabric:
I love giving clients options, so similar with my other living room design, I added a second page of additional suggestions for pieces that Lisa could swap in to the living room based on her preferences:
I would love to hear what you think of the room and/or any other ideas you have for the space, so leave me a comment! If you know anyone who wants a fresh look for a room in their home, send them my way. You can see my portfolio of mood boards here.
