Project Title
Neutral Eclectic Home Transformation
Project Description
I am looking for a classy polished calming/natural decor look for my house. Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is the type of classy look I like. I like West Elm for its natural feel. And Home Goods has great accessories. Crate and Barrel and CB2 are fresh. I would characterize my style as transitional with Scandinavian inspiration. I also like Indian, African, and Native American style influences. I've tried incorporating an indoor vine wall (fake vines) and some grape wood branches for a more earthy feel. I've got some plants in there. I also tried using some mirror panels. But the look just isn't coming together. Other people like my decor, but I'm sure with your professional eye, you'll see what I'm saying. I think scale may have something to do with it... And lack of something that draws the eye. Idk...

My living room, kitchen, and dining room are all together (open floor plan). I'm just seeking assistance for the living room and dining room parts. I'm OK with replacing some things if I'm convinced it's the best option for the space, but I'm hoping to keep the more expensive items. However, I've been thinking of dyeing/bleaching the curtains white... And refacing the Fireplace...I want to have dinner parties. I've always wanted to entertain, even though the dining area is small.

For my bedroom, I need 100% styling. I only want to keep my bed but change everything else. I'm ok with a wallpaper accent wall in here. It's a weird limiting space, though.

I realize that most of my pictures for inspiration have great natural light. I don't have the option for natural light, but I'm open to hearing options on how to optimize the light in my rooms. I have recessed lighting in my living room and I use daylight light bulbs.

It would be cool if my art could be from African-American artists, but not a requirement. I want my home to give us an accomplished motivating feeling. I like chainmail in home decor. It's amazing when done right.

I have an air purifier in my bedroom - black air purifier (16"w x 9"d x 19"h). I plan on getting one for the living dining area too.

Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Very little sunlight
What do you currently dislike about the room?
It lacks cohesion and class. It's dark. It's not interesting. My sofa set is not comfortable. The drapes don't seem to go with anything. The gallery wall looks unfinished. The art looks drab. The room has no focal point. It doesn't flow. I don't like the fireplace. It's made of the same granite that the kitchen counter is made of. It doesn't seem to go with the decor. I don't like seeing the TV wires. I like the idea of 3 clocks, but the way I executed it feels a little cheesy. I like the full length mirror is handy to see yourself before walking out.

The dining room muddily blends with other space. I'd like either a distinct difference or a better executed blend. I don't like that there's no rug. The chairs look a little off and I may prefer a dining bench. My plant in the corner by the fountain, doesn't look to scale. The chandelier might not be classy enough. I like the storage bench we have because we use it a lot for our weather items. We also use the coat rack a lot.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
Shagreen Sideboard (from Restoration Hardware), matching shagreen side table (square one), drapes, tv (49"w x 28"h), fireplace tools, coffee table, small round glass pull up table (mitchell gold + bob wiiliams), keep nature (doesn't have to be what I have now though), wall mirror fountain (30"w x 21"h), 3 panel picture (16"w x 48"h each), wood coat rack (23"w x 5.5"h), Dining Table 37.5"w x 79"L

Additional comments to designers
Some additional measurements:
Rug 9x12,
Fireplace 51"w x47"h,
Couch 95"L x 36"d x 32"h,
Sofa 64"L x 36"d x 32"h,
bench 16"w x 42"L x 19"h,
mirror panels 12"w x 48"h,
chandelier 16"w x 36"h,
concrete stump 18"w x 20"h

I uploaded a picture of track lighting in the "images of your room" area. I did this because we bought that track lighting thinking that it would work better than the brown track lighting that is currently up. It's not a must to use it, but i would be nice if it works with the decor.

Behind the big gray picture (42"w x 52"L) in the living room is a small nook behind it. The picture covers it up. I couldn't take the picture down to get the exact measurements but it's roughly 29"s x 42"h x 4"d.

I do hope to have some space for an air purifier. I'm thinking between the sofa and the fireplace wall would be a good hiding spot for it.

What do you currently dislike about the room?
It's a blank canvas because we're selling our bedroom furniture. I don't like how small it is. lol

I also don't like how it doesn't transition well into the bathroom. It's a gray similar to the rest of the house but then BAM. The master bathroom is beige. I'm hoping to find a way to bridge the colors/look. However, I do plan to get a consult for the bathroom. So, don't take the bathroom at face value. I also don't like the little window above the bed. I also don't like that weird nook above the closet. I'm thinking that's a great place for some greenery. I also don't like the sconces. Mirror doors for the closet would be useful.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
bed (84"w x 96"L x 50"h (floor to mattress is 28"h)), hanging jewelry box (14"w x 48"h x 3.5"d), tv (40"w x 25"h)

Combined Living/Dining:
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, you chose to use gray because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors.

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.

Knot cushion Gray
The tactile and playful Knot Cushion was born when Icelandic designer Ragnheiður Ösps Sigurðardóttir was experimenting with efficient ways to make legs for stuffed teddy bears. Suddenly she had a flash of inspiration and started tying the tubes she was working with into knots. She says about her sculptural design: "I like that when you take a first look at the cushion you might not really know what it is and perhaps that is what draws you closer." We definitely recommend getting closer to this cozy work of art. Care: Hand wash cold dry flat.7 x 12"d

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

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
