A lively worldly eclectic mix in a layered living room.
(via Home Adore)


I’m excited to share this decor preview of the court house project this week! If you missed the project introduction, you can read up here. In order to create a multi-functional space, I broke the room up into two sections to create a dining area and a seating area. My clients also wanted the sofa to provide ample room for TV watching for their whole family, so a large sectional took the place of an arrangement of a smaller sofa and chairs. Because of the smaller space, a banquette provided a cozy but space-efficient way to seat many people in the corner of the room. It also brings lots of light and color (and more comfortable seating with Sunbrella fabric) to the edge of the room. We kept the sectional neutral, but brought in a little color with the throw pillows, and some sparkle with the faceted side tables. The console adds a contemporary touch, and I love the way it invokes the feeling of clapboard siding without getting tacky. It’s also important to consider a sealer to protect floors from water damage. The rug plays with a greek key motif, unraveling it in a geometric border that feels both modern and traditional, and is for both indoor and outdoor use, so it’s perfect for summer bare feet!

  2. Sectional couches are seriously the best and serious life/spacesavers!

  3. I’m obsessed with the striped banquette! Also, oranges and blues are one of my favorite color pairings, so I’m also loving the pillows 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
