The designer and client worked together on art placement. A deep, rich taupe wall color for the entry and hallway, which marries with the living room's lighter taupe, was selected by the designer. This deep tone enriches the entry and hallway and serves to wonderfully set off the wall art and accessory pieces.
This light-filled space was transformed by, first, moving away from white walls (which are wonderful in many situations) to a rich, medium grayish taupe. The new wall color serves to pull together all of the pieces in the room and creates a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing space. The sofa and matching chair were custom designed by the designer based on client desires. New lighting was added. Furnishings and accessories are new. Pillow deigns by Donna Gibbs. The wonderful hardwood floor was refinished per designer's input on finish tint.
