Our clients wanted to address several things in their formal living and dining room. They needed new furniture to mix with their existing pieces for an instant update, they wanted the two spaces to connect and allow for entertaining friends and family and most importantly they wanted to showcase their spectacular artwork. 

The goal was to marry their mid century modern style with the Asian influence in some of their existing furniture and artwork. We wanted each artwork display to feel like a curated collection so we had the idea to create two focal gallery walls. We worked with a local framing company to help us be creative with the framing and preservation of the pieces. We rearranged the seating in the living room and chose sofas with clean lines so as to not distract from the artwork. The new coffee table, updated chandelier, and accessories complement the vibrant colors in the watercolors. The result is a bright, cozy, interesting space for our homeowners to entertain guests or just curl up and read a book.
