This living room project was centered around creating a furniture and lighting plan that filled a long and narrow space in this family's home. Our clients wanted the room to be functional for their family and for entertaining friends. The living room is immediately visible the moment you step in the home, so it was essential that the furnishings were a representation of the client's personal style and that the space looked updated and organized. 

We opted to center the furniture around a new fireplace to help ground the space. Creating a focal point on the far wall, was important to help fill the room and establish a sense of balance. Artwork, a credenza and decorative lighting really add to aesthetic of the entire room. Adding an overhead light in the center of the room really helped to define the seating area and open up the space. In addition to a new furniture layout, we made a lot of updates to freshen up the space. New paint, a darker floor stain, a brand new fireplace surround, a custom stair runner, additional overhead lighting and wiring for sconces, and custom drapery panels worked seamlessly with the layout to elevate this room. 

We used textiles to add color, texture and pattern to this living room to achieve a sense of fun and whimsey for our clients. It was important to them to have vibrant colors and bold pattern in the space. Shades of fuchsia, navy and black and white liven up neutral furniture and walls.



My husband and I recently worked with Becky and The Phinery to redesign our living room and dining room, as well as some other general design plans for our house and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience. From the initial consultation to the final touches, Becky was professional, attentive, and incredibly talented.One thing that really stood out to us was her attention to detail. From the selection of furniture to the placement of accessories, every element of the design was thoughtfully chosen and expertly executed. Becky’s ability to create a stylish and modern look truly transformed our space and exceeded my expectations.In addition to the design work, she also helped us navigate the logistics of the project, including coordinating with our painters and electricians, ensuring that their work was complete in line with the overall design of the spaces. Overall, I couldn't be happier with our experience working with Becky and The Phinery. Her creativity, expertise, and professionalism made the project a success, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to transform their space.
