It’s always a pleasure working with clients who share the same wavelengths and style like a Studio City interior designer like myself. The Hancock Project was full of creativity, whimsey, and boldness which makes my job fun and worthwhile.
The living room design project started by highlighting the original fireplace with a dramatic art Deco design. The client and I decided to redesign the fireplace entirely but maintained the theme by surrounding it with etched travertine tiles. The fireplace is surrounded by black distressed marble floor and patterned etched print on distressed travertine with travertine trim.
The fireplace is accentuated with gold trimming to cap off a stylish and elegant look. The black mantel was custom created to create additional storage space for accents and vases.
Found in the right corner of the living room space dwells the red secretary that belonged to my client’s grandmother. It was a unique, vintage piece that is truly loved by my client. As a Studio City interior designer, I also drew inspiration from the old furniture and incorporated red accent pieces in the room -red metal magazine holder, table lamp, throw pillows and the violet velvet loveseat with red trimmed piping.
For the window treatments, I chose a neutral drapery which calms the room and also provides privacy from the busy street.
The love seat is a bold and stylish approach with the right amount of balance. The stunning Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair perfectly complements the red secretary and is paired with the lime green chair that tones down the loudness of red. The beautiful pillow and prints pull all the colors of the room together.
Overall, the living room decor uses all of the client’s favorite colors – red, green and violet. The purple and red blend well together, and the use of green accents act as a relief. The glass coffee table keeps the room more open. Notice the balance of the mirrors and the color represented by all the upholstered pieces. Silk flowers are beautiful and low maintenance item that adds a breath of fresh air inside the room.
All furniture, lighting and decor accents came from my furniture showroom, Architexture. Custom pieces were designed by yours truly.
