BEFORE: Steeves took this 'photo' of the existing living area for her registers. With the blinds drawn, it's easy to see the potential of this spacious area, but it felt incomplete; the single sofa also two recliners floated in the nearly 500‐square‐foot living area. "They didn't have enough furniture," she says. What furniture there was didn't relate to the kitchen also dining areas.
AFTER: She added two more chairs with drum coffee tables, creating a cozy U‐shaped sitting area. Steeves also added a 12‐by–14 rug with pulled all the furniture onto the rug to make the space more intimate plus to keep the large windows free. Soft fabrics warm up the space plus complement the color scheme, while the rug defines the furniture area.
The living space serves a variety of needs: The family uses this space for watching TV; they also play games with grandkids as well as hang out with family as well as friends here, so the new seating area provides opportunities to focus on the TV in–conjunction with the fireplace as well as the views. The furniture is also now close sufficient so that people could talk with one another.
Between these two redecorated spaces, the entry connects the living space with the kitchen together with welcomes guests into the house. The solace table together with poufs were existing when Steeves was hired, but she removed a colorful nature picture from the wall. "The stone didn't look its best as well as neither did the painting," she says.
AFTER: The fireplace wall sits at an angle as well as blocks the kitchen with living space from view when visitors enter. "I wanted to create curiosity when you walk in the door," says Steeves. She hung a parabolic mirror where the nature picture had been, providing guests with a glimpse into the kitchen with living area from the entry, picture them into the digs.
By the time Steeves wrapped up this project in May, she had visited the house a total of three times including installation day, also all went giving to plan. Steeves had sent a layout package to the couple to analysis after the first walk–through that included suggested layouts, plans also material samples for the whole project. "When I sent [Marion] the package, I knew [the rooms] will look good," she says.
