Friends Living Room Update Reveal!!!

So a while back, a good friend’s sister asked me to help bring some life into her space. She has a young family and wanted something that was fun, yet livable.

Now here’s the after!

We brightened up the space by removing that large dark bookshelf and replacing it with this fun mirrored buffet. I like that it still allows for good storage (it’s filled with toys), but is really fun and updated at the same time. The room all began around the two prints above the buffet. She had picked that print out, however since the space is so big I recommended adding the second to fill the space and give nice symmetry.

She had a little console table under the TV before, but the scale was a bit too small. So we used this fun West Elm table to create a nice little vignette with ottomans tucked underneath for extra seating.


we also traded out the heavy second sofa facing the TV for these two Pottery Barn tufted accent chairs. This room opens up to the kitchen behind it, so I feel that the lower accent pieces help keep the room open to the rest of the space.

We still have a couple accent things to finish up. First I am looking for some additional pillow fabric options for the wing back chair and the coach, and as always continuing to look for any fun little decor accent pieces. But I think so far it’s a great transformation!

My sister and I are working on a Design project for a condo here in downtown Milwaukee. Laura worked on the main area last year and now we are working on the bedroom. In the main area of the space Laura infused lots of bold colors. Orange and Turq being the most prominent. We thought we would continue with the same color story in the bedroom but use softer tones. She has one large statement wall that we are hoping to use this wallpaper….we went from there.

The art the client already owns so we were also making sure we can use that too!

This week I hope to dive into some fabric options for lots of print mixing in the pillows!
