Wow! I just love it when a I can Wake Up a Sleeping Room with pops of lively color. The homeowner called me for help and said no one ever uses this room located off the kitchen. I was able to reuse his dark brown leather sofa by angling it in the room facing his existing TV. I also repurposed his accent tables by adding a little spray paint and revitalizing them. The real showstopper of this room is the handmade area rug. I selected a deconstructed Oriental rug to modernize his space, yet maintaining the integrity of the room style. Once the room was anchored with the properly sized rug, the rest fell into place: splashes of vibrant color bounces from the mantle, to the new nesting tables and toss pillows, and then to the colorful wall art. Finally, a well-balanced room that everyone loves and uses daily.
