Project Title
Neutral Transitional Living and Dining Room
Project Description
I need help completing/refining the look in my living and dining room. I have invested in a couple key pieces that I love (like my couches) but need help making the space feel more inviting. I want it to feel formal/sophisticated but still warm and welcoming. Mostly need help figuring out the flow of the room, right now I feel like there is a lot of symmetry happening. The wall with my sideboard feels empty - I've tried a variety of mirrors but nothing seems to work. Perhaps that whole area needs to be reworked. I love vintage prints and neutral colors (also blues, black, gray, pops of greenery), but feel like I need a pop of contemporary design/color to make sure the vibe isn't too stale/boring. Throw pillows are an area I really struggle in! The cape cod shutters are something I love and in general, I love the look of Serena & Lily but want to make sure we are respectful of our Seattle weather/environment :) My husband and I are newlyweds and just bought the house last July, we are 29-30 years old so want to make sure the space feels fresh! Can't wait to work with you.

Using lighter colors in your medium-sized room will make it feel more airy and bright

For your main color, gray is perfect because it is neutral and seen as elegant and classy. It compliments many colors and works well as part of a color scheme in any room.
