POSTED BY DECORIST EDITORIAL TEAM

PROJECT DETAILS

The Project:  A large, nondescript living gets a sleek and modern makeover

The Clients: A young San Francisco couple looking for a warm, contemporary space

The Designer: Briana Nix, Decorist Elite designer

The Budget: $12,000


“We'd like to add some warmth and personality, while keeping with a contemporary, sophisticated, streamlined look."


CLIENTS' REQUESTS

  • The space is essentially a big blank canvas - it's been a challenge finding furniture, rugs, and art to scale with the dimensions of the room
  • With a space this size, we would like help with the layout
  • Incorporate some large, framed personal photos on the walls
  • It would be ideal if our room makeover could incorporate new flooring, window treatments, and paint colors, in addition to furniture, rugs, lighting, art and decor
  • We have a large 70" flat screen TV, which currently dominates the room - we'd love it if you could help us find a way to blend it in

BRIANA’S DESIGNER NOTES

  • Removing the carpet to show blond wood floors is key to brightening and modernizing the space
  • Anchored by a sophisticated print rug, two large-scale sofas serve as the centerpiece of the room
  • Additional seating vignettes around the room allow for stress-free (and stylish) entertaining and are flexible to move around depending on the size of the group
  • Oversized artwork above the fireplace and adjacent to the wall-mounted television (looking quite unobtrusive) add personality yet still work with the peaceful and contemporary vibe of the space
