Morris Plains | Bold and Colorful Family Room

Do you ever see photos of décor that stops you in your tracks? This project is full of those moments. The clients are from England and wanted to bring some life and color into their bland 1970s home in New Jersey. They have two children, work from home full-time, and are minimalists so it was important to keep things practical while still bringing the spunk to satisfy their love of bright jewel tones.

The design challenges here included thinking outside the box and taking risk with color. We also had a small entranceway which is adjacent to the living room where we wanted to make a big impact. This was achieved by using a bold wallpaper on the oddly shaped wall by the stairs. The colors coordinated perfectly with the living room!

But the real showstopper here is the custom velvet sofa. The clients are huge fans of velvet so mixing that with their love of bold colors, we were able to create something totally fit for their style and family.
