Though this living room was off to a great start with all the wonderful mid-century furniture, Apartment Therapy DC Flickr Group member Diademydo made some updates to the space that included a reupholstered chair, a new rug and lots of pillows, artwork and accessories to pull the space together.
The chair was re-upholstered in a neutral fabric and new throw pillows soften the angular lines of the furniture. I'm glad to see that the orange wasn't abandoned! It was brought back into the space through the pillows and new artwork. The new pulls on the dresser give this older piece a more modern twist, and the new rug has and organic shape to offset the rest of the rectangular furnishings.
This room is a great example of the difference just a few changes can make to any space.
