Client Project: Cozy Living Room with Rustic Flair

(This post contains Affiliate Links. For more info, please see my Disclosures page).

My latest project is one that is close to home for me, literally! My clients Chris and Erika are practically neighbors, and it has been so fun to design a space for them. They have a beautiful home set atop a hill that overlooks the local golf course, giving them a view that is beyond words. They can see so much of our small town, all from the comfort of their living room. So with a view like that, it’s no wonder they were seeking assistance in bringing the rest of the room forward with updated design and style.

Chris and Erika are looking to take on quite a few renovations in their home, such as new flooring, updating the fireplace, and eventually a kitchen renovation as well. At this time, the most important thing to them is to have a home that reflects their style, and feels put together and intentional. This means bringing in some new furniture and decor pieces. You will see the selections I have made for their space on the 2 design boards below.

The room is centered around the fireplace, with their comfortable sectional sofa positioned to view both the fireplace and the TV. When we are ready to update their flooring, a dark laminate with a rustic, hand scraped finish will bring in the look they desire while staying budget friendly. A light colored braided jute rug will lay the foundation in the room, and bring contrast between the flooring color and furniture. Layered on top of the jute rug will be a beautifully detailed vintage inspired rug, with varying shades of blues, beiges, orange and purple. This rug will unify the color scheme which is based around a family heirloom decor piece, which displays those same colors. The pillow choices are again based around the color scheme, and are of varying textures such as linen and velvet, and some patterned for visual interest. Comfortable throw blankets are also in complementing colors. Dark wood furniture accents with an “X” detail will play to a rustic look. A storage ottoman is the perfect piece to add in the room for their young daughter to sit at the coffee table with. A new ceiling fan in a copper finish will make a statement and complement the tones of the wood, while a simple glass table lamp with a linen shade will calm the tempo in the room.

Now, let’s talk about accessories and accent pieces!

E&CAccessoriesFinal

I chose a wide assortment of decor pieces for their space to fill the built-in shelving flanking their fireplace, as well as a media unit with lots of cubbies. You will see the tones in the decor are fairly neutral, so that the things that are of color really pop, such as the rug selected above. One element I have incorporated in the accessories, that is a prominent hue, is copper. A copper framed mirror will hang above the fireplace, as well as some other copper accents that you will see above. I chose copper because it complements wood so well with it’s warm tone, and, it can bring in the appearance of orange, without it being orange! It’s a more neutral option in that regard. There are dark woven baskets to complement dark flooring, and an assortment of greenery to freshen up the space. I have selected the majority of these pieces to fit in their built-in shelving, which only have an 8-inch clearance between shelves. I wanted to give them the opportunity to move things around and change things up when they want something different! Chris and Erika want their home to feel pulled together but approachable. With all of these elements, the vibe reads as cozy, collected, rustic and fun.
