Project Title
Relaxing Traditional Living and Dinning
Project Description
We'd like to continue working with Rachel to finish out the rest of our space including the living room, dining area and foyer.

This is a private project for Rachel including renderings for the living room.

For the dining area and entry we just need a concept board + shopping list.

I want to update lighting in all rooms.

I'd like to get suggestions for blinds to be used in all rooms, maybe honeycomb blinds that will insulate better.

When guests come up the steps the furniture layout tends to funnel everyone to the dining area, even if no food is involved. There just isn't a good flow to the rooms.

I am looking for a warmer, more polished overall look.

The other design challenge, is that it has to be dog dog friendly. Two of my dogs like nap on the couch and the other is always stretched out on the floor. Fabrics that can be cleaned or slip overs are a must. When all 3 play, it's like a herd of buffalo running through the room. A coffee table with sharp edges or that can be easily broken won't work.

Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Morning light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
Lighting in all rooms.

When guests come up the steps the furniture layout tends to funnel everyone to the dining area, even if no food is involved. There just isn't a good flow to the rooms.

The front door, while pretty, lets everyone look straight through the house, hence the curtains. I should have gone floor to ceiling with them for a more dramatic look.

We really need a better bar cabinet/area. Nearly everything we have is stashed in an empty guest room.

I am looking for a warmer, more polished overall look.

The other design challenge, is that it has to be dog dog friendly. Two of my dogs like nap on the couch and the other is always stretched out on the floor. Fabrics that can be cleaned or slip overs are a must. When all 3 play, it's like a herd of buffalo running through the room. A coffee table with sharp edges or that can be easily broken won't work.



What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
I'm willing to replace anything.

There are few pieces that I've taken a pic of that might be able to be used if they work with the new design. There are 3 of the hurricane candle holders.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Yes
Do you have a preference for either paint or wall covering, or are you open to both?
Open to both

Yes
Which type of flooring do you prefer?
Open to any
Additional comments to designers
I'd like new window treatments + light fixtures. I'm open to replacing all of the furniture, but I want to keep the glass hurricane.

The other design challenge, is that it has to be dog dog friendly. Two of my dogs like nap on the couch and the other is always stretched out on the floor. Fabrics that can be cleaned or slip overs are a must. When all 3 play, it's like a herd of buffalo running through the room. A coffee table with sharp edges or that can be easily broken won't work.

Online Designer Combined Living/Dining Moodboard
Combined Living/Dining:
Using lighter colors in your medium-sized room will make it feel more airy and bright. Teal accent with existing grey.

For your main color, we chose to use blue because it is calming, relaxing, and serene. It ris reminiscent of blue skies and deep blue oceans.

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
