Is it the SAME COUCH?? Really? (A Quick BEFORE & AFTER! )

One of my great joys in doing what I do, is to take a room that feels tired and old to my client, and make it completely new—even if most of the main pieces in the room never change.

This living room was ready for a reboot—and my client was ready for it to be rebooted!! —but she knew she didn’t want to buy new furniture…

Fresh paint, new hardwood floors and new positioning for the couches—and we were off to a great start with a more open and dynamic feel for the room.

Also added to the space were new bookcases to fill a large mostly blank wall, lovely curtains to add softness, and a stunning area rug adding a modern pattern and fresh feel.

New pillows and a throw on the couches make them feel completely updated and ready for another decade.

The finishing touches, which make all the difference and really complete the room, include new lighting, funky accessories such as the wood and tapestry stool in the foreground here, and of course, some life with greenery & PLANTS.

And I was so honored to get this testimonial from my client after we finished this room for her:

“I had never worked with a designer before until now, so I was a bit apprehensive. Immediately upon meeting Erin, I felt at ease. She explained the process and took the time to get to know me and my taste so that she could truly reflect who I am in my furnishings. Couldn’t be happier with the way my living room looks now!”—
