LIVING ROOM BEFORE:
LIVING ROOM AFTER:
We moved the love seat to face the fireplace and created a conversation area with a pair of chairs and an ottoman we found around the house. We anchored this seating area with a large patterned rug we found in the family room. The homeowner wants to replace some of this furniture, and can now easily switch it out when they're ready to purchase new pieces. We also reworked the fireplace mantle with a lamp and some large colorful ethnic pieces from their collection, creating a strong focal point as soon as you enter the room.
FAMILY ROOM BEFORE:
A fresh new look in an afternoon using only what you have!
