What Houzz contributors are saying:
Inspiration: This bright and vibrant living space is made all the more intoxicating with the addition of well-chosen plants. These two tropical beauties diversify the color palette and make the room feel more inviting and comfortable.
AFTER: After ripping out the carpet, Bohlman discovered red oak floors, which she refinished. She also added a slight arch to the door frame. A deep purple rug now dominates the space, and Eva Zeisel sconces cast a soft glow. Bohlman found the Room & Board Jasper sofa for $200 on Craigslist and had it slipcovered. Vintage family photos hang above a piano painted in the same soft aqua color as the walls.A pair of designer lounge chairs was Bohlman's first "grown-up" purchase; she had them reupholstered in a green retro fabric. She scored the apothecary chest at a salvage yard in Berkeley, California.Wall paint: Windswept, Dunn-Edwards; embroidered bench: Pallavi Bench, Joss and Main
