Happy Friday All! It's been a while since I have blogged. I miss it and plan on being back here to share tips and projects with you every week.
I am so excited to share this project with you. I recently sent this design to a client in Palm Desert. They have a mid-century modern style home with all the charming throw back features. The mission was to create the classic style while making the space comfortable and more functional for entertaining.
All good designs start with inspiration. Here were a few images that got my creative juices flowing.

This open furniture layout creates three different seating groups throughout the space. First, a small seating lounge as you enter the space giving focus to the view outside the vaulted windows. Second, a small single reading chair near the modern fireplace. Third, a larger seating group that will have two swivel chairs to swing and turn to the walk up bar. This area will also focus on the TV and movie watching in this area.
The furniture is a mix of actual mid-century modern vintage pieces with some affordable replicas. This client was not afraid of color so I added pops of color in pillows, chairs, art and rugs whenever possible.
The modern fireplace wall needed an update so I selected a classic ledger slate for the walls with terrazzo floors for a classic throwback look. Lastly, we had some fun by updated the ceiling fan to something more modern and fun.
Mission accomplished on this Great Room design. Stay tuned for the before and after photos.
