The largest issue in the space was the off-center placement of the fireplace on the back wall. In order to address this issue, furniture was arranged in a circular seating group which served as a distraction from the fireplace placement and made the room feel balanced. In addition, this arrangement took advantage of the predominately square shape of the room and encouraged conversation, whether enjoying the fireplace or the view through the window.
The biggest issue in their bedroom before I got my hands on it was the warmth factor. The space just felt too cold. Their previous furniture was circa 1990 and was too matchy-matchy and way too contemporary for the rest of the home. The walls were covered in a goldenrod paint color that matched the hardwood floors, and they really needed a large area rug.
To make this home feel more relaxed and inviting, designer Blanche Garcia used soft colors, lightly-textured fabrics and a smart mix of delicate patterns. The beautiful result is a soothing transitional home with classic details and an overall feeling of comfort.
The color scheme from the previous design was dictated by an area rug in the room. We managed to borrow an area rug with cooler colors from another part of the home to breathe new life into the space. The client's daughter wanted a French ambience so that was introduced with the choice of subtle colors and pattern. The study area didn't work, either. We redesigned the furniture plan in that area to create a visually uncluttered area for her to do her homework. The homeowners initially didn't want to make changes to the furniture layout, but when we moved the pieces for our photo shoot and showed them how well it worked, they questioned why they hadn't done so in the first place!
