Before

After…Luxe Layers!

#1 Classic neutrals are a great start.  Here we have classic sectional frame, textured linen colored fabric, rich wood floors and Benjamin Moore’s San Antonio Gray walls.

#2  Pillows add color and softness to your upholstery.  Mix and match color and pattern.  Try combining stripes, diamond shapes and tight prints.  Here we show a mocha/natural stripe, linen with teal chenille accents, and a mocha colored animal print. Chic and fun!

#3 Rugs define your seating area, protect your wood floors, provide softness to your step and add great color and texture.  We chose a deep teal geometric rug with linen taupe colored oval accents which complement the linen color in the sofa.  It just draws you in!

#4 Cocktail table ottomans and coffee tables ground the center of your seating area.  Our Chase Cocktail Table Ottoman offers a great place to kick up your feet, relax, set up a tray of goodies, and store your necessities in style with spacious lower shelf.  We love to kick up our feet in style!

#5 Art will dress up those bare walls.  Choose large scale or group complimentary smaller items in large mass. Abstracts are used in both contemporary and traditional settings. Art can add depth, color and interest to any space. We love how this grand scale abstract is so ethereal!

#6  Art should be unique and complementary at the same time.  Mix shapes, orientation, and size and keep harmony with color tones.   Here we add two large pieces to change up orientation and create mass together.  We love how the pop of color plays off the rug and some of the accent pillows.

#7  End tables are for more than just lamps.  Lamps are more than just function; they are a piece of three dimensional art.  When layering end tables, think in threes. Mix shapes and heights for just the right look.  Add your own photo frames and items for that personal touch!

#8 Accessorizing cocktail ottomans and coffee tables add that finished and homey look.  Pair function with style by selecting decorative boxes for media controls, trays for beverages, and candle holders for ambiance.  Try a gorgeous soft throw for snuggling and decoration.  Maybe faux fur…so cozy!

Follow the above steps for a beautiful room.  We would love to help you!
