At KCL-IDESIGN, LLC there is always a decorative coating about to be splashed somewhere, and yes, I am the principal interior designer who gets to splash, splash, and more splash! However, with this living room, I needed a color palette that would be statement-making, and while doing so, also create a subtle contrast. During the color consultation, I noticed that specific colors were mentioned several times throughout the conversation. My goal was to give the clients precisely what they desired, as well as envisioned. I know and understand the importance of incorporating a client’s style. So, I made sure to do precisely just that because it is always about the client.

The standing ovation goes to green and orange! Both became the chosen colors for the interior walls. “Whew, there are a billion and one swatches to choose from when dealing with greens and oranges, and yikes, I had to find the perfect one of each.” I will admit – it was beyond fun and exciting, and I was more than ready to revamp the BLAND living room! With the space being tiny and the fireplace as the focal point, the original furniture arrangement did not change. Blocking the entrance to the downstairs bedroom and kitchen was not an option. All pathways needed to stay open for easy access and maneuvering.

With both the color palette and furniture placement solidified, it was time to create an entirely different living room. The exciting part about working with limited space and an existing furniture layout is that I get my chance to make a drastic before and after. In knowing this, my creative juices kick in, and when they do, I always capture a fantastic look, feel, and vibe. The living room revamp was achieved!
