Now, clearly there is no transformation like the one from an empty room to a space filled with carefully chosen furniture and art - it's always going to be BIG. Nicole of So Haute sent us this before of her living room - essentially a blank slate - along with the lovely, welcoming "after". It's pure inspiration…
Nicole told us: I had such a great time decorating my living room! Every piece was a treasure and has its own little story. I definitely practiced patience and took my time finding just the right pieces. It took about a year or so for the space to fully come together. The space lacked architecture so I relied on color and the layering of textures to add depth to the room. I layered a cowhide rug on top of sisal and the velvet Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofa contrasts nicely with linen textures of the pillows, a rich wool throw and accents of brass all around. My favorite pieces in the room are the bright pink lamps from Robert Abbey that I got from Lamps Plus. Other favorite pieces include the coffee table which is from eBay and my X benches which were from the Brimfield Antiques show.
