We started with a great space that has tall ceilings, wood beams and beautiful windows. The walls are finished in a Venetian plaster. The large fireplace is trimmed in gray & slate blue tile, and the ceilings feature large walnut-stained wooden beams.

With the beige walls and light Maple floors the space needed some richness and color. We settled on a palette of deep browns and turquoise.
These two amazing area rugs laid the foundation for our Living Room and Dining Room. They added softness, depth, and rich color to both spaces.
This Tibetan rug is hand knotted in wool and silk. The deep chocolate brown is accented by abstract, asian-inspired Jellyfish shapes. It's a great counterpoint to the more densely patterned and colorful Living Room rug.
The clients enjoy entertaining, so it was important to provide plenty of seating for guests. But the furniture also had to be kid friendly for their two young girls. We settled on two of these cozy ultra-suede sofas and the companion chair. They are large scale, perfect for curling up to watch a movie, but still crisp and stylish with square tuxedo arms and nailhead trim.
Rather than using a coffee table, we selected an oversized leather ottoman (60" diameter - as big as a dining table). It's great for young kids, but can also provide extra seating during a party.
Here are a few of the unique furniture and accessory pieces that went into the project:
