As far as living room transformations go, this project boasts a complete change. To do this, the designer modernized the room’s structure. Dated arched alcoves and a step wall gave way to an elongated facade with tall rectangular recesses. As a result, this feature wall sets the tone for a luxurious space.

The living room was dark before its makeover. First, the fireplace mantel had to go, in favor of a sleek front and a fresh coat of paint for the built-in shelves. Parisian design comes through strong with mismatched accent chairs and a Roche Bobois bubble couch.

Mid-century modern furniture features in both the before and after. Initially, however, the furniture was ill-matched. Conversely, the new picks for the makeover were cohesive and refined. They followed more than a similar era, but also corresponded in color scheme, size, and proportion.

An awkward layout and ill-placed furniture made up the room before. It huddled into the corner of the room with the TV as its focus. Now, the design spreads throughout the space and flows from one zone to the next. A separate media nook, central sitting area, and compact lounge with a grand piano form the design.
