Designers Courtney Cox and Alex Deringer refurbish a room by replacing a sectional with a budget-friendly adore chair and chairs. Pet-friendly indoor/outdoor fabrics make a room suitable for a German shorthaired pointer who likes to relax on a lounge and demeanour out a window.

Cox and Deringer, of Ivy Lane Living (703-566-6582,, are formed in Alexandria.

The designers’ tips:

● Paint a walls a balmy color, such as Benjamin Moore’s Santorini Blue .

●Use a adore chair and chairs to yield seating though strenuous a space.

●A span of upholstered ottomans can be used as footstools or additional seating, and they yield additional storage.

●Upholstery in durable fabrics is pleasing though also dog-friendly.

●An open console behind a sofa creates storage and helps conclude a space.

●Update a room with complicated touches, such as nailhead trim on a ottomans and pillows in fun prints.

●Keep a pattern window undressed to maximize a light in a room.
