simple is beautiful

E-Design Living Room

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I recently posted an inspiration image that a client sent me as direction for her living room e-design.  I thought you might like to see the resulting mood board.  My client's style is a mix of traditional, eclectic, and vintage.  She loves neutrals, especially grays.  She wanted the living room to "have a classy feel at the same time comfortable and usable for everyday living."

As you can see, the concept uses lots of creams and whites with the warm gray walls as a back drop.  The baskets, rugs, and Roman shades add a rich organic element while the metallic finishes round out the space  My client is on board with the plan and is very excited to get started.  She began gathering items over the weekend and will hopefully have some pictures to share with us soon.  Fingers crossed.

P.S.  This might just be my favorite mood board yet.  I love the simplicity.

  6. I love the natural woven materials and the light colors. It's not one that I imagine getting tired of. Those big seagrass baskets are my favorites!

  11. This looks great Rene, and it will all look really pretty with the floors and natural light that she has coming into that room. I love the mirror and the side table.

  15. Beautiful! I'm usually drawn to rooms with more color, but the monochromatic-ness of this one is so soothing and relaxing. A perfect place to unwind after a long day at work :)

  17. That is going to be one gorgeous room! Can you tell us the pros and cons of using those bamboo blinds? I'm thinking of using those on the backside of my new house but have no experience with them.

  18. Thank you for the nice comments everybody!

    Stacey, the shades add a bit of privacy unless you line them with blackout liner, then you will have full privacy. I like to use them to add texture, warmth, and a natural element to a room.
