We recently had the pleasure of transforming a formal living room and formal dining room for a client who loves to entertain, but felt these two spaces were precious square footage of her home that was not being used because she did not feel they represented her or her style well enough to invite people to use the space.
Here are some before and after images of Project Rive:
The formal dining room was dark, even though there are plenty of windows. The custom window treatments bring in a bit of a traditional pattern to coordinate with the rest of the home.
We lightened the walls and got rid of the dark, traditional furniture and the dining room transformed! The ivory leather chairs and the light rug, really reflect the sunshine nicely. The gorgeous chandelier catches the sunshine during the day and throws some really pretty rays.
The formal living room (below) was also dark, even though there are some beautiful windows at the front of the room. It is shaded outside, so there is not direct sunlight, but again the paint was a dark hue. And if you notice, it is not even the same color as the formal dining room, which is attached.
We carried the same color on the walls through into this room and really lightened the space. The custom, color blocked curtain panels are a beautiful addition that frame the windows and ground the space opposite the formal dining room.
Here is another view as you enter the home and look to the right.
This is a bit of a different angle, but the transformation is still the same: AMAZING. The chairs are custom and covered in a beautiful blue crushed velvet (that is very durable) and pillows that have a different pattern on either side because we all loved two different patterns equally!
This is the far wall in the formal living room. The table was from Asia and the client wanted to keep it, so we relocated it to the living room and utilized it as a sofa table; it was too casual for the formal living areas.
We kept a bit of an Asian vibe with this gorgeous console. The sleek lines and mixed metals bring a level of sophistication to the space AND provides additional storage.
And for your viewing pleasure, here is a full tour of the transformation “AFTER” we got our hands on it:
So what do you think? Pretty amazing before and after, isn’t it? We love the comfortable elegance that the rooms have now. If you would like your own transformation, please give us a call! 972-248-4733
