Modern & Cozy Living Room

Happy Monday, everyone! 
A few weeks ago I got an email from a prospective client, who was inquiring about my e-design services. This girl had me at "I love your bedroom wall color, and I'm thinking it would be a great color for our living room in our apartment!"
Needless to say, I was over-the-moon-excited to work with Jill! Over the last few weeks I've put together a design plan for Jill and her husband. 

 Here's the room before we started to work on it:

Here's the design plan:
Jill wanted something fresh, modern, bright and cozy.  The size of their apartment is small, so creating a space with 3 functions {dining, work space, living area} was the challenge.  She had her big brown sectional already, so we designed the space around it, hoping to create a more light and airy room.  

With the addition of white furniture, fun prints, and an awesome gallery wall complete with a LOVE print and wrapped wedding canvases, their living/dining room is really shaping up!
Pops of YELLOW will be throughout the room, too!

This design has been so fun to work on for many reasons! First of all, she has been buying the furniture as we go and is wonderful about sending me picture updates! Second, Jill and I have really become friends through the process, and I know that if we didn't live on opposite sides of the country, we'd be best pals (:

She was so kind in letting me show off some of the sneak peeks....{out of respect to my paying clients, I don't share resource lists with readers...sorry!}

Here's her new media console:

A great shot of the new rug and ottoman:

And of course her new awesome desk:
I can't wait until we get the curtains up, dining table in, bulletin board up, and our awesome new pillows. I know Jill will keep me updated! {Thanks girl!}

What do you think so far?? Cool, huh? I adore the gray color on her walls. Great color, if I do say so myself (:

If you are looking for a second pair of eyes to take a peek at a room in your home, I'd love to help you! Feel free to check out my e-design packages on my e-design page, or email me at for more information. I'm currently booking clients for January!

Have a wonderful day!
