My client Lisa bought her single family home two years ago. It is a two-story bungalow style with lots of character. Because of Lisa’s busy work and travel schedule she hasn’t had an opportunity to do much decorating in her place. However, she has an eye for furniture and already has a number of unique pieces in her home, many antique. Much of her furniture is neutral color / wood tones, serving as an easy canvas to build on for the design. She wanted to start with decorating her front living room and then potentially move to decorating her dining room and sunroom / TV room.
- Start with adding some art to the walls and a rug on the floor
- Reupholster her matching slipper chairs (a great flea market find), or find affordable replacements
- Have a comfortable space to be able to put her feet up to read and look out her big sunny window
- Add a small desk so she can do work on her laptop in the room

I would love to hear what you think of the room and/or any other ideas you have for the space, so leave me a comment! If you know anyone who wants a fresh look for a room in their home, send them my way. You can see my portfolio of mood boards here.
