PROJECT: Fun Living Room

I wanted to share with you a living room I'm working on right now. It's for a young client with a really great sense of style. She loves a contemporary, bright look with classic elements. We're going fairly earthy & monochromatic-textural with fun punches of orange fabrics and olive walls. Floors are a wide-planked ebonized hardwood.

The sofa: (Bisque leather frame & natural linen seat & cushions)

Large, rectangular throw pillow on sofa:
Coffee Table: (color in picture is a little off)

Zebra Chair:

Cane-back chair: (we'll toss a pretty orange bamboo throw on it)

We're installing a wall-mount in electric fireplace surrounded by custom wooden built-ins, which will be very contemporary- forming a brick-like pattern for all the beautiful objects the client has collected in her travels. Recess lights will point at the built-ins to showcase them. Walls will be in an olivey-beige and draperies are in a really textured, nubby linen. I'll also probably do a few pillows in it. We're doing natural woven shades & simple rods & rings for the drapery hardware.

The breakfast room will have this banquette in the black & white bird fabric:

We're painting her existing chairs orange & putting them around a contemporary pedestal dining table with the custom banquette. We're reupholstering the dining chair seats in the same nubby linen as the draperies in the living room.
As soon as it's been completed, I'll post pictures!

I love this so much. The entire room is funky but homey. The orange bird fabric is completely unforgettable. Lauren, you're amazing.
