Jennifer Brouwer Design Inc.Transitional Living Room, Toronto
This living room was inspired by the love of neutrals and an urge from the client to incorporate pops of colour.
Yellow and Gray was our launch palette. We soon found lovely visuals, to support our mission. We kept the furniture calm and serene then punched each piece with pops of fun sunshine yellow!!
I know if you read my descriptions Yet again one of my favorite projects!!! I can't help it, I love them all!!
Thanks Jack and Angel, it was a pleasure working with you both :)
This project is 5+ years old. Most items shown are custom (eg. millwork, upholstered furniture, drapery). Most goods are no longer available. Benjamin Moore paint.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Another way to refresh your room with lampshades is to choose the same shade, or very similar shades, for multiple lamps with different bases. That was done in this room, and although the lamp bases are quite different, their similar shades make them look intentionally paired.
The type of insert your pillow has may help you decide if you want to chop or not. Here the pillows appear to have a feather or down insert with a high fill count. They look full and plump without chopping. A foam insert is definitely not a good contender for a pillow chop. Pillows with foam filling tend to be more rigid and usually look good without frequent fluffing. If you overmanipulate them, in fact, they can get lumpy.
7. Mix bases, match shades. This room is a great example of mismatching lamps: The crisp white drum shades connect the floor and table lamps, though both are very different. The almost Roman styling of the floor lamp and the crystal-ball base of the table lamp both work wonderfully against the dove-gray walls, and both serve different purposes. A floor lamp generally lights a larger area than a table lamp, but neither light a whole room. Together they make for a warmer lighting scheme that is bright enough but not overbearing.
Medium gray. I don't know why, but gray and yellow seem to be made for each other. Many people are hesitant to use yellow but when put with gray, it just works. You can create a cheery space by using a soft mid-tone gray with vivid yellow accents. Paint Pick: North Star 6246 by Sherwin-Williams
