This resident dreamed of trading in her 90s era furniture for a look that felt like it came out of the pages of magazines like Veranda and House Beautiful. She finally reached out to a professional designer who was able to see that the client was looking for rooms that looked polished but felt cozy, in a transitional style with a heavy dose of navy and white. Steal some of these ideas for your own magazine-worthy home!
By changing the paint color from pale green to greige, the living room became more airy and peaceful. There was a serious lack of lighting, so I incorporated lamps, sconces, and pendants for even illumination. A variety of large-scale patterns, elaborate florals, bold solids, and natural woods make the eye dance around the room. Her living room is now an elegant and comfortable retreat. She enjoys lounging back in the recliner and taking in the skyline, and having friends over for small gatherings and book club meetings.
