Like so many other empty nester couples, Debra and Karl found themselves living in a home that was created by default, collecting a little of this, shelves filled with memories and family pictures.
There home was filled with history and love and so many happy times. What they lacked was a sense of style, a sense of who they were as a couple and where they were going in this next state of their life together
As they thought about how to revamp their tired living room and dining room, they had a sense of what they wanted but were unable to articulate it. As the couple worked with one of Smitty's Interior Decorators, playing with colour, design and exploring who they wanted to be, their sense of playfulness and happiness came out and their excitement built. No longer were they overwhelmed with the process of where to start, they began to see themselves in the colours that they were falling in love with.
Happy colour was the theme that they built their room around. It all began with a swatch of fabric and the room began to come alive. The couple concentrated on how they wanted to use the room, how they wanted to live, who they wanted to entertain and the room plan came together with the help of a trained decorator.
The sofa from Palliser covered in a neutral grey fabric became the anchor piece of the entire room. The perfect recliner from Palliser's My Comfort collection allowed the couple to swivel to have a conversation and turn to watch tv as well. Each chair was fit for each of the couple and met both of their needs, making the room comfortable for both of them. The pale green colour gave them a sense of playful colour without being too strong and bold.
The star of the room has to be the couple's favourite find, an area rug from Surya carpet. The pattern is bold and breathtaking. The colours gave the couple the fun, playful and exciting feeling they were trying to create. The area completes the room and makes the room show stopping spectacular. Just ask any of their friends who gasp when they enter the room at how spectacular it is.
Karl and Debra are absolutely thrilled with the room and how it was personalized to their personal style. They are confident that nobody else has a room like theirs and no other room could reflect their vibrant personalities as well as this did.
