Before & After: Sarah + Darren’s Living Room
Sarah and Darren recently moved into a new apartment in San Francisco and worked within the strict “no painting!” and “no nails!” parameters to furnish their living room with a beach/city theme that relies on furniture and textiles to energize the space with color, pattern and texture.
I’ve never fell in love with a curtain the way I did with the Painted Ikat print. It has this amazing painterly quality to it, and it feels so organic and calming. These panels inspired our entire living room color palette. It was pattern love at first sight.
The couch we inherited from Darren’s previous roommates. It came as a sectional, but we unhooked it to create a walkway to the table and chair by the bay window. It made the living room feel way larger by doing this, and it created three separate sitting areas. I’ve never had a rich, navy blue couch before — and I’m obsessed!
We oftentimes eat dinner and drink wine in the little bay window dining nook, and we joke that it’s our own little café patio.
Thanks Sarah + Darren!
