Now that the kids are in college, it was time for a more sophisticated living room for the parents to entertain. With lots of natural light coming in from windows as high up as 30 feet, a dramatic Benjamin Moore color was chosen for the walls and fabric that was luxurious to the touch. A mirrored console reflected the beautiful fireplace across the room, while new electronics with lots of seating within view were the recipe for friends and family to enjoy each other.

Deep eggplant wall color was chosen to contrast and bring about the details in the light furniture. Beautifully upholstered pieces created a cozy corner seating area in this large Dining Room space. Comfortable slipper chairs with nailheads were added to the table ends, new slip seats for center seating in rich complementary fabric, custom table runner and accessories were chosen to complete this elegant room. The living room is designed to effortlessly flow to and from the dining area.
