Room Label
Living Room / Dining Room
I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Feminine
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Late afternoon light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
A bit dark and masculine. But overall, I do like the feel of the room. I like the layout. I like that it's warm and comfortable. A bit too dark and monotone.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
I'll keep the lighting. I have a couch and ottoman (Boston Interiors - Bailey Sofa and Ottoman) that I'd like to keep but isn't essential. I've considered a sleeper sofa in this room although I hear that they aren't very comfortable and to stick with air mattresses for guests.

I have some art that I'd like to find a place for. I also have a fiddle leaf fig that I'd like to keep (but it needs a more attractive pot).
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Maybe
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
Yes
Which type of flooring do you prefer?
Area Rugs
Additional comments to designers
The floorplan isn't exact. I'm waiting to get one from the current owner but this one is pretty close (it's the same unit one floor below).

The client does not have any furniture that she is moving into the space - the photos show the previous owner's furniture (which she really likes and ideally would mimic something similar in her selections).

Living Room:
Since your room is smaller using a light and pale color will enhance the light and the space in your room

For your main color, we chose to use gray because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish
