An open-concept top floor condo finally gets dressed! After two years of living in a space with only the basics (sofa, dining table and chairs, bed…) this couple decided it was time to outfit their home.
The open concept living-dining room was bare and monotonous with stark white walls and brown furniture and a few brown accessories. The large passage behind the sofa became a dead space as it was filled with unused patio furniture.
A console table decked with pretty, colorful accessories was added to the empty space behind the sofa to add interest, still leaving plenty of space to pass through there to access terrace. The console can also double as a bar or place to set up hors d’oeuvres when entertaining.
In the dining area, a large mirror was added to the back wall adding depth to the room. The brown place mats were swapped out for tall, fresh green and white flowers in salvaged glass bottles (an easy DIY!) and two sets of candle sticks. The new arrangement adds a pop and some life to the brown dining table. The walls are painted a warm gray; Benjamin Moore Stone Harbour 2111-50.
Accessories and pillows are a great way to add color and interest without making a huge commitment. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and layer in different textures.
The first room people see when they walk in – a space often forgotten but SO important! The vestibule is an easy room to update – a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper and some fun accessories and you’re done!
Walls are painted Benjamin Moore Van Deusen Blue HC-156. Nautical prints are paint on burlap.
The couple had always dreamed of having a contemporary hotel-style master bedroom that they could retire to at the end of the day.
The soft blue and various shades of gray create cool a relaxed vibe that appeals to both him and her. Walls are painted Benjamin Moore Escarpment CC-518.
Make use of every nook: Built into the bed is a clever hidden storage compartment for less frequently used items such as seasonal clothes. The mattress is sitting on a hydraulic system that easily lifts up for access!
