The new homeowners really wanted to put their own stamp on the house where they planned to raise their daughter. The living room had no personality and really didn't reflect who they were or how they lived. They brought me in to turn a dark room into a light, airy, comfortable space. I started by removing the dark brick fireplace and adding a simple white mantle with glass and stone mosaic tiles around the fireplace opening. It brightened the space immediately.

Then I added custom furnishings mixed with online finds, for a space that truly is a blend of their styles: modern classic with a mid-century twist. It's the place for the family to gather and play, read, or simply enjoy each other.
