I'm back with my sister-in-law's 2nd design redo, the great room. This room was a bit tricky because the furniture had to stay the way it was (TV wouldn't fit in opposite corner and sofa was too long for opposite wall) and the artwork above the mantel (also painted by my very talented BIL) needed to stay as well. I wanted to incorporate the browns of the photo and accessories with the black furniture. They also did not want any heavy curtains or window treatments that would block the light from the bay windows.
New mantel accessories to go with the my BIL's artwork and carvings. Also painted this accent wall 2 shades darker to give the room more depth.
Added valances and accent pillows to add some color.
I did a long vertical photo arrangement to balance out this side of the room.
Moved the clock to this wall, where it is much more noticeable and in better scale.
I wish my pictures would have turned out clearer, it's hard to see the details. It looks great in person and I am so happy with the final result, as our the homeowners:)
