Happy Sunday friends! Today we have something sweet for all of you on our monthly blog! Often times, we create small furniture plans for our clients, and even if we end up not using them, we hate to be wasteful! With a little design magic we can turn this floor plan into a real life interior space! Everything you see here today is affordable furniture and accessories that you can find at Wayfair.com!
We incorporated splashes of color in a mostly neutral color scheme. Oftentimes, when clients are choosing their main materials such as flooring, stone, brick, and lighting fixtures, it can be easy to look at the materials and think "How boring!" BUT it is all about what is going in the space. Any room can be transformed with candles, plants (fake or real, we won't judge) rugs, pillows, and blankets. Even white walls can be dressed up with tapestries, mirrors, and wall sconces. So what we're trying to say is, it's okay to stay in neutral in the beginning of your design, and then kick it into gear a little later!
So with this kick of inspiration, we hope that you too can look at your space and try your hand a design. Everything that was shown in this board is available for purchase over at Wayfair.com. There are hundreds of other options, and send us a picture if you do decide to take the plunge!
TIP OF THE DAY
If you want to go ahead and plan out your own Great Room, you don't need to get yourself a laptop with AutoCAD and Photoshop, all you need to do is grab a pen and paper! Do some rough measurements of the space (this will help when picking new furniture, or moving furniture you already have around) and jot them down on a note pad. Now it's time to sketch! Draw the shape of the room, and then mark where your windows, exits, bookshelves, fireplaces are (or anything you have in the room). Now you can look at your floorpan with fresh eyes, and sometimes this can help figuring out where you'd like to position your furniture! If you're feeling lucky, go ahead and try to sketch furniture pieces in from furniture websites, which all give dimensions. This can be tricky because it must all be to scale, but that's for another blog!
We suggest playing around with all ideas, and always think out of the box, because that is when we tend to get our best ideas! Pinterest is of course where we find our muse on days where our inspirational meters are low.
