The living room was originally intended as a space to entertain company and receive visitors - whether it is a traditional or formal gathering. As the first room that guests see it not only should look good - it should be inviting.
This town home - the start of a new beginning for the owner and his two teenage daughters - was under construction when we first saw it, but had so much potential. It was really the perfect place to live, cook, entertain and even work.
When considering a change in your home – don’t be afraid of the Dark - a dark color that is. It is a leap of faith, yet it has great rewards. And while it is not for every room, consider a dark color for a place where you want to create instant drama.

The homeowners enjoyed their home for many years. It was comfortable, yet the sofa was wearing out and the colors just weren’t right anymore. This room is so important. Not only is it a place to relax every evening, it is the room where family and friends gather.
A living room is often the room that we just walk by. It doesn’t have a purpose. It is our goal to make each room inviting and functional. We want you to be able to use every room in your home.
