Design Connection, Inc. Living Rooms | Kansas City Interior Design
Subtle and refined this beautiful hearthroom was transformed by a cozy sectional and accented with suede pillows and fun, black and white patterned pillows. Soft and wonderful underfoot is this great looking silk rug, you almost have to walk on it to believe it. This client had beautiful crystal family heirlooms that we featured on the glass coffee table, candles used in the evening make this space appear magical. The crystal lamps with linen shades are very much up to date. We loved the steel table, though twenty...
In 1989, this home was on the cutting edge of interior design. Although times certainly have changed in the past 25 years, this home’s décor certainly had not. It was like stepping into a beautifully preserved time capsule from 1989, featuring a traditional brick fireplace, teal leather furniture and golden oak paneled walls.
After my initial consultation with the homeowners, it was determined that their personal style was more transitional than traditional 1989, so we quickly got to work. The focal point of the room, the fireplace, was dark, dated and dingy. We opted to work around a total demolition of the old brick façade by installing horizontal 12×24 stone tiles over the existing brick. Our incredibly talented tile expert at Design Connection, Inc. placed both mosaic and linear tiles over the old surface and skillfully addressed...
This room was featured in Kansas City Home & Gardens Magazine. The beautiful faux painted mantel gives this room a beautiful elegance; it was transformed from a white mantel. The custom drapery was lined and inner lined to give a luxurious tailored look. The furnishings were purchased in Europe, and give it a different look from the Kansas City casual.
This spacious, beautiful room was a multiple award winner which included ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) Gold Award of Excellence. Our client's home sits atop Missouri bluff overlooking three ponds on 80 acres and was custom built in conjunction with Design Connection, Inc. The open floor plan allowed for a kitchen that was made for entertaining and enjoying the natural elements outside.
The living room was created to add comfort and lots of style. CR Laine Furniture, a beautiful line of custom upholstery that is made in America, makes the statement the space needed. Our client loves all of her new furniture and accessories.
This beautiful Kansas City-Briarcliff Home won the ASID (Association of Interior Design) Gold Award of Excellence for Whole House Design.
As you enter the home, the living room is the first room that you view. The custom window treatments and woven woods set the mood for this romantic and dramatic living space. We used many accessories that the client already owned and provided furniture that was comfortable and had a great look. We made a great effort to provide a room that was comfortable, casual and yet formal in feeling. The clients love it. Woo Hoo!!!
This lovely Kansas City remodel won an award of excellence from NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry)
This Leawood home had not been decorated in 25 years. We darkened the brick on the fireplace and faux painted the mantel and wood trim. The rich colored walls were textured and faux finished. The leather furniture along with the custom ottomans accented the existing accessories. Wow! What a dramatic change!
This room is a total redesign. The home was built 20 years ago and the client had never updated from the original decor and furnishings. Design Connection, Inc. closed off a door to the library which allowed us to design a custom sectional for maximum seating for viewing the T.V. over the mantel. This home was featured on an Interior Design Tour hosted by NARI the National Association for the Remodeling Industry and viewed by hundreds of Interior Design enthusiasts in Overland Park, Kansas.
With much thought and excitement, Design Connection, Inc, a local Kansas City Interior designer, was choosen among many applicants to refurbish and furnish the Community Club house for Signature Place Apartment Community Complex. Because this room is considered private public space within the shared living we wanted it to feel inviting and elegant as a private living room would so we chose a warm and inviting color pallete, replacing the cool green tones that were existing.
This Kansas City redesign began by staining the fireplace a darker color. The tile on the fireplace was changed to a neutral style and makes the space flow. The area over the television was filled with sheet rock in order to hang a flat screen TV. We carefully space planned the room and realized with just the right sized furniture we could accomplish the amount of seating she requested. A wool area rug was selected to set the tone for the room. The fabrics have long wear ability and a great look. We tied the room...
Signature Place Apartments called on Design Connection, Inc. to furnish their model apartment. As with all of our interior design projects, a space plan was created and every square inch was accounted for. Because of the limited square footage, custom furniture was created to make this small apartment home appear even more spacious.
These homeowners enlisted the help of Design Connection, Inc. to update their great room. They wanted to keep the comfort of their home yet bring its design into this century. Usually, we take measurements, create a digital footprint of each room and come up with a space plan before we start having fun selecting colors and fabrics. These homeowners happened to fall in love with a bolt of fabric that was sitting on a shelf in my office. This fabric swatch set the design in motion and was selected for the drapery,...
Wanting to maintain the traditional look of their eye-catching fireplace, we decided against mounting the TV above the mantel. We designed custom cabinets that flank each side of the fireplace and discreetly house the television components. By faux painting these cabinets using the color of the surrounding walls, this dominating feature wall effortlessly blends in with the rest of this space. The dark aqua accent wall brings this room to life as a focal point against the brick fireplace and is paired perfectly...
