An Entertainer's Dream Home
Living Room Renovation
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.
