Project Title
Gray Accented Contemporary Living Room
Project Description
We recently closed on this house on July 20th. Therefore, the furniture in the pictures belong to the sellers. The only item staying is the grey sectional. The entire space doesn’t get very much natural light even with the shades open, so I would love ideas on how we can bring in more light i.e. mirrors. I want the entire space to be warm, inviting but yet elegant and importantly kid friendly, I have a 1yo & 3 yo.

It’s a large space so I want to take advantage of the amazing floorplan. It would be great to have sections where people can sit and talk but not be limited to sitting only on the sectional or at the dining table.

I’m not afraid of accent colors, patterns and textures. Bring it on! :)

I want to keep the paint as is on the walls.

Since I mentioned the space doesn’t get much natural light, my husband and I talked about getting canned lightening, would love suggestions on light fixtures.

I’m extremely excited to see all your ideas. Reach out to me if you have any questions on my project brief.

Additional comments to designers
I meausured the ceiling: 7ft 10.5”

The sunroom door from the dining room is 3 panels.

The other thing is that the room has these columns that stick out of the wall that the designers need to be aware of.

Combined Living/Dining:
Since your room gets little sunlight a warm or rich color will make the room look more luminous

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use a matte finish paint because it will be helpful in camouflaging those surface imperfections such as bumps and cracks as it does not reflect light. Just be careful because matte finish is more difficult to clean. You may also need to touch up scratches or marks by adding more of the same paint in the future.

ANNELAS MIRROR, SAPPHIRE BLUE
The Anne Mirror is a grand scale, multi-colored statement in beveled cornflower blue, dove grey and clear mirrored glass. This classic Queen Anne shape is a beautiful choice because it reflects sparkling light along the dynamic, beveled colors of the mirrored glass border. Each piece starts out as clear flat glass, which is artisanally cut, heat shaped, beveled, silvered, and colored. Visually, the mirror transitions Parisian and Venetian tastes with those of New York designers of the 1930's.
