It was vital that we managed to tie the living space together, as it felt disconnected from the rest of the home.

About the Space

Upon entering this living room, you were greeted with an echoey clip clop sound… Not an entertainer’s paradise. That is because the entire space was tiled from wall to wall. In order to make the room feel more homely and less sterile, we opted to add in a rug. Not only did this help with sound absorption, but it quickly elevated the space from dull to luxurious. An important aspect of interior design and decorating is to include a variety of textures in the space. In addition to blankets, pillows and furnishings, rugs are another essential home accessory. We have an entire blog post dedicated to rugs. If you would like to know more about the in’s and out’s of using rugs in your space, click here.

If you look at the before images of this living room, you will find that there was not much colour, and the space felt empty. Colour can greatly impact the feel of a space. For example, cool tones such as blues, greens, purples, etc. generally create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. We added in various hues of blue within the rug, ottomans and decor accessories. We included different mixed metals such as matte black accessories, as well as metallic silver finishings. Although different metals, they work well to tie the space together. Overall, a once sterile and clinical space transformed into a relaxing and calming family room: An entertainer’s dream living space.

About the Space

The word “lifeless” might come to mind when looking at the before images of this entrance and foyer. But that was before we got our hands on it. This entrance and foyer was lacking life and colour, but we managed to turn that around during this renovation. It is generally known that darker paint colours tend to make rooms see smaller than they are, while lighter colours make rooms seem bigger than what they actually. The same goes for different types of wallpapers in which certain ones may make a room seem smaller, whereas others make a room seem bigger. To some, a patterned wallpaper can seem like a huge risk, but they can really add a ton of character and personality to a space. This double volume space was perfect for a patterned, vertically striped wallpaper.

As you may know by reading our previous blog posts and seeing our previous work… We LOVE to use greenery indoors. We actually have a whole blog post dedicated to it! If you would like to read more about that, click here. We added some potted plants to add some greenery and bring life into the space. The piano fitted perfectly into the space and will provide for hours of music and fun. The music will carry beautifully up into the double volume space. We decorated the upstairs landing and foyer with a light wood dark table. This was finished off with an array of hand picked vases, greenery and a lantern. Not only is the lantern beautiful, but will also help with the pesky ‘load shedding!’ Our clients are greeted with an entrance and landing that will always make them smile, and feel instantly relaxed.
