Warming Up a Cool Room



Even though my clients’ living room cabinets were painted white, when combined with the carpets, wall colors and window highlights, the result was a cold, dark space. By painting the cabinets dark burgundy, covering the floors with stone and choosing richer paint colors, the room has been transformed into a warm, inviting refuge. Red wool plaid pillows and bench, and a dark burgundy ottoman/cocktail table work with the cabinets to accentuate the coziness.  My clients’ clock collection is displayed to much greater effect, and I repurposed an antique bed cover that fit perfectly as a tapestry above the fireplace. Also, the stone floor is more practical considering the extremely large mastiff that roams this relaxed and comfortable country home.
