What do you do when your overall home design feels disconnected? So, you’ve ticked off the checklist for an open living room and dining room: sofa, coffee table, rug, dining table, and lamps. But sometimes even with these components in place, a design might not feel like home yet. Our recent client Mark shared this very problem. He had all the core pieces but expressed that “the overall apartment felt a bit incomplete.”
Mark and his wife contacted Decorilla to get interior design help and decided to try the online interior design service. This before & after reveal shows how they found their perfect and cohesive space.
- stylish storage to the space
- replacing some pieces like the area rug and desk
- adding fresh paint, artwork, & accessories
So, how do you create a modern rustic design by combining existing pieces and new ones?
Decorilla online interior designer, Rachel H., used Mark’s inspiration images as guidance. Picking up on the preference for a neutral palette, wood finishes, and patterned textures, she created a concept that effortlessly brought in new elements to enhance the current space.
Centering around the current pieces, Rachel brought the room together with accent walls in Benjamin Gray’s Nightfall, cowhide rug, an oversized clock and a metallic floor lamp. Tall modern shelves give the space height and needed storage.
The world map was kept to frame Mark’s new desk and soft furnishings like a faux rabbit throw and knit pillows soften up the space along with tufted ottomans for additional seating.
Within a few months, Mark’s apartment went from looking disconnected to having a cohesive and beautiful style. Grateful for making our apartment modern and comfortable, our clients expressed being “very excited to come home to this.”
