Project Title
Transform my Space
Project Description
My boyfriend, Chris, and I will be moving to Stamford, CT from Philadelphia, PA. During the week, he will be working in South Jersey and will have an apartment there. So the apartment in CT will be our weekend retreat / time together each week. We hope to be working / living in the same space in the next year - so this will be our "home for now".

I work long hours and view my home as my rejuvenate / rest space. We will have small groups of friends / family over on occasion to cook and play card & board games.

We love to cook. We enjoy watching sports on the weekend but otherwise the TV isn't a big focus of our day. Chris's kids are grown and we do not currently have any pets. We love plants and this will be our first apartment without a patio in a while. Somewhere to grow plants inside near the westward facing windows would be great.

We eat our meals equally split between TV trays in the living room, the bar, and the table.

Most important to me in my space is that everything have a "home". so incorporating storage solutions will help me keep clutter at bay. I lean towards "clean" and slightly more modern design and to Chris it starts feeling sterile. He likes warm (colors and natural woods) which sometimes starts to feel too traditional for me.

One or both of us will occasionally work from home, so somewhere for laptop / monitor / keyboard etc. will be useful.

Budget: Bedroom (not including mattress) - somewhere around 5 - 7K seems reasonable but I haven't furniture shopped in quite some time - so I have some flexibility if this is too constraining. I have owned many things that are "functional" and "okay". I would really like to add a couple of items that I can keep for a long time.

Budget: Living / Dining room - I'm really not sure here. Quality and value are important to me. I'm not sure I can fill the space all at once with pieces that I will want to keep forever - but am willing to splurge a bit on some pieces that will be with me for a long time. Initial thoughts are in the 10-15K range.

My Combined Living/Dining
What do you currently dislike about the room?
We miss having a patio, so we want a space for plants.

The space has been repainted since the staged photos were taken. The space is too white. I've been renting for 3 years now and am ready to not live in "all white" rooms.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
I've attached a photo and an excel document of some of the furniture we love. And some of the furniture we "like". And a few things we've bought recently that make us happy.
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?

Additional comments to designers
We are open to painting but since it is a rental - we will likely have to repaint white when we leave in 1 - 2 years. So accent walls or neutrals that will cover eventually are preferred.

It doesn't seem as saturated.

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.

Since your room is smaller using a dark and rich color will make it feel cozy, warm, and lounge-like Farrow & Ball offers tons of examples of rooms using that color on their website. There's even a video with even more visuals and information. http://us.farrow-ball.com/brinjal/paint-colours/farrow-ball/fcp-product/100222 Decorilla clients get a 10% discount on Farrow & Ball paint & I suspect you will only need 2 gallons at max for those two walls. I entered your dimensions for the entire space and that estimated you would need 3 gallons, so you may really only need 1 for both walls. You can use the visualizer on Sherwin Williams' website to see how Merlot looks in other spaces.

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.
