Contemporary living can be warm and inviting.

Contemporary living can be warm and inviting.

Janet and I spent several days decorating this West University home for a family of four with two darling little girls. What we did here was use a collaboration of the clients existing furniture and added key accent pieces to each room.  Above, note the white lamp in the blue shelves.  We even used posters from her college days, framed in plexi-glass placed inside the shelves.  Another example, a bright orange ottoman holding court in the center of the family room.

The end design of this job displays how color can be inviting, warm, and tasteful.  Don’t be afraid to change out wall colors from your typical designer white to a butter yellow or if your really brave a fabulous orange.
