Tim Raymond wants to refurbish a 14-by-17-foot vital room of his McLean home though is struggling to put all of a pieces together. He wants a comfortable, normal character for a space, that is used for entertaining, reading and relaxing. The wainscoting and grate make a room feel a small some-more grave than he would prefer, and he needs assistance selecting lighting, furniture, window treatments, accessories and an area rug. Essentially, all can go for a consequence of formulating a brighter and some-more mouth-watering space.
Designer Dana Tydings adds tables and upholstered seating to emanate an insinuate review area. A wallcovering with a pointed though fun settlement relaxes a wainscoting for a some-more spontaneous feel. She uses upholstery in Pantone’s Color of a Year for 2017, Greenery, as good as orange accessories, to lighten and inject life into a space.
Use a accumulation of textures on seat and fabrics to supplement interest and depth. Here, that comes from raffia on a chests, a corpulent woven nap carpet and velvet on a bar chairs. A contemporary light on a mantel doubles as a musical and organic element. Covering a homeowner’s existent chair in fabric to compare a new chair unifies a space. Paint a grate approximate white to discharge a dim focal point. A neutral sofa, area carpet and wallcovering are offset with colorful accents to keep a space interesting. A gradual blue potion console with a colorful flare reflects a light from a brook window and acts as a organic backdrop for a sofa. Add a silk palm tree to alleviate a dilemma and inject a healthy regard to a space year-round.
