Working with a client’s existing furniture and accessories is sometimes simply a matter of evaluating what the rooms have too much of… and what they have not enough of.

In this case, we told our client that there were “lights and darks, but no middles,” in terms of color. Lots of high contrast darks against lighter colors. But all the colors were drab and nothing popped. So we added oranges and whites which complemented the moss greens. A bicycle stored behind the sofa is now hidden by a folding screen. The client’s shoes were transferred to the closet, where they belonged. A pair of bright orange lamps and orange pillows in a matching tone were added for punch.

We moved a rug from the dining room into the living room. In the dining room, we repositioned the table and chairs and set the table for a meal. We moved the coffee maker from the dining table into the kitchen, and then we hung gold floor-length curtains to add warmth. Simple touches…Big impact.
