Before & After Living Room

Sunday, September 26, 2010

The main paint colour throughout the residence is Benjamin Moore HC-105 Rockport Grey.  It’s a bit difficult to decipher the colour with the lighting in the photos, Rockport Grey is a light, warm, muddy grey.  The client’s sofa and artwork inspired the colour palette for the room.  We did a collection of gold toned pillows for summer and a darker collection of pewter toned pillows for the winter.

We incorporated many metallic colours and tones.  The side tables, fabrics, lamps, art and accessories meld gold, brass, pewter and chrome in an effort to tone down the brass trim on the fireplace while adding a sophisticated elegance.  The heavy black side tables were replaced with smaller coordinating chrome tables.  Sleek, elegant floor lamps replace the table lamps and go well in scale with the smaller tables and art, giving the room a light and airy feel and an unconventional sense of style. 

Smaller caramel coloured accent chairs add a sense of symmetry and refinement to the bay window. 

Stools in front of the fireplace are a decorative element and double as extra seating for friends.  Larger scale accessories bring drama to the fireplace. Books were moved to another room, CD’s and stereo were put in the closet.  Sliding closet doors were removed and the interior of the closet painted Benjamin Moore CC 544 Overcoat.  The future plan for the closet is to install cabinetry and electrical, creating both closed storage and decorative display.   Furniture, lamps, pillows and accessories are from HomeSense.
