My living room makeover - part 2

The left side of my living room looked like this right after we moved in. This is a very long and narrow space (23'x11') so while it's easy to break it up into different zones on each end, it gets a little tough fitting in a really large sofa and TV cabinet and not having everything running along the walls and ending up with a boring layout. And while you may recall I had received a new sofa not that long ago, my choice of wool fabric was really not smart in a house with a bunch of cats so I moved it upstairs to the storage room and may use it when we convert the space into a library. Since then I did however score the rug of my dreams and that caused an entire re-arrangement of the space and I bought a few new pieces to go with it. 

This rug is Fool's Paradise by Marcel Wanders for Moooi Carpets from The Modern Shop. It is soooooo gorgeous, and pretty much ideal in this house of many pets because it is essentially commercial grade and very low pile so it will stand up to wear and tear and fur and constant vacuuming. The flower photo printed on it is SO sharp and the colours are incredible. I opted for round instead of rectangular (and the smaller of the 2 sizes) because I didn't want to emphasize the long and narrow shape to the room. Even though my sofa is rather big and bulky, by placing it on an angle in the corner it makes it look SO much smaller and really opens up the space.

I had to find a new chair to work with the rug, and came across this Victorian grandfather chair at Yardley's Antiques. I love the competing florals together. The glass sculpture on the pile of books and glass vase on a stand are from West Elm. The gold with marble top table is from Homesense. The star light under the table is from Gaslight Electric Sign Co.. The antique fireplace screen turned artwork is from Highjinx. The light is the Flos Aim pendant designed by the Bouroullec brothers. 

This is a REALLY old chair, and I need to find some trim to cover those staples. 

The vase and lidded bowl are vintage. That's a watermelon peperomia plant. The leaves are adorable.

"Every project I work on is different as every client is different and being their home, it should be a space that truly suits them and their lifestyles! My job is to hold their hand, push their boundaries, but still create a space that is inspiring." And they are Camilla ... very inspiring.

What I want

I want to sit on that sofa, rifle through the cupboards, flick the light switches on and off, pour myself a drink and pat the dog. I want to squish my toes into all the rugs, work in that office, run my fingers across the bathroom stone, take shelter from the midday sun in the cabana and swim in the pool. What I really want is this Hollywood Hills house by Veneer Designs.

A classic, modern living room

The layering of texture, the mix of modern and old, high-end and low, a colour palette of black and white warmed by rich caramels. Simply delicious. A classic, modern living room by Austin-based Claire Brody Designs.
