A new Before & After from our own Sara Touijer — a Home Stylist in our Scarsdale store. This family was ready to furnish their neglected living room…



The client came to west elm Scarsdale with a minimally furnished living room that had been untouched since moving in 5 years prior. The only stipulation was to incorporate the existing patterned chairs in the design. On my initial walk through, I noticed a mix of modern and traditional. Since gray was the dominant color in the home, we continued the gray palette into the living room to create a cohesive look.



The client was very trusting and allowed us to select everything. I also chose artwork from Etsy and suggested it be blown up and quartered. After the key pieces were in place, we set up another day to style the home and take pictures. The client loves the way her living room turned out and has recommended us to several of her friends!




Thanks Sara + west elm Scarsdale!

Beautiful transformation! I think the new room looks great. I will keep this in mind, since my living room has a similar layout and needs furniture!

Nicely done. The softly floral curtains are a nice surprise and a few touches of purple are lovely.
