Before + After // Adena Project

This project showed us that sometimes all you need is less. When we first saw the space we realized that the furniture pieces were beautiful but not quite right for the room. Our client wanted an elegant room that served as a formal living and dining area but also have the space feel warm and inviting. We started by brightening the walls and simplifying what she already had.

In the original layout the sofa was too small, the side table too large, and the rug too tiny for the space. To balance the room we did a large single cushion warm gray sofa, two velvet charcoal chairs and a stunning cognac leather ottoman, all from our Bungalow 56 custom line. To keep the symmetry in the room we did two oversized side tables with large white table lamps.

In the dining area we kept the dining table and end chairs but paired them with a tailored linen chair. Before there was too many wood elements competing with each other so we had the warm wood credenza painted a dark charcoal and also had the sliding barn doors painted in the same color. Having these two dark pieces compliment each other nicely and tie the two room together.

Having patterned curtains in an open concept room can sometimes be overwhelming. We opted for a clean creamy linen curtain to elongate the walls and create the bright airy space our clients wanted. When accessorizing this room we kept things simple and just love how this space came together.

We had so much fun transforming this formal living and dining room into a space that our client could entertain and feel relaxed. The sofa, ottoman, living room chairs and dining chairs are from our new upholstery line available in the shop. We used a creamy grey fabric for the main sofa, a gorgeous velvet on the living room chairs and blended those together with a cognac leather ottoman. We had the dining room credenza and sliding barn door painted a dark grey to add some contrast in the room and kept the decor simple with creams, greys and whites.
