The client came to west elm Home Stylist Danny Tovar of our Atlanta store with pictures of an empty room and with hopes of making it a comfortable and inviting living space in time for her son’s graduation party. She wanted to work with her exsiting wall paint color and use neutrals as the base for a timeless look. Danny helped her select pieces that could work in several applications today and five years from now…
The room is not large so I decided to use several pieces that were off the ground to keep a roomy feel. We started by looking at the Dunham Sofa for its size and sleek nod to the mid-century. The client also wanted a few unexpected contemporary elements that are represented in the art works geometry and color and the white laquer cubes that are a sharp contrast to the area rug. I pulled rust and a sky blue for the pillows from the art work and the blue again for the drapes in a linen sheer to add more color to the space. We used the weathered choclate leather chairs as a way to give the room substance since there are plenty of lite elements in the room. She can now add more if she likes or can totally change her color palette year round to suit her needs.
