Great Room Inspiration

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

As an interior designer by profession, I see a lot of different styles and design for many different high end clients. I’d like to think that being a designer makes it easy to design my own home; but, the truth is that my tastes change all the time since I’m surrounded with so many different styles. It’s hard for me to choose exactly what I would like in my own home but I do have a pretty good idea of what elements I prefer. Since there are so many different areas of a home, I decided to focus on one room, the living room. This is where most of my time is spent currently and I have a pretty good understanding of what I need/want in that space.

Deep Hues

Deep, dark colors in both furniture and wall color. I love the aesthetic of a well-designed dark space. There’s a way to design a beautiful dark space without making it look like a cave.

Luxe Items

Brining in luxe glam items in places like the coffee tables and end tables will help lighten up the place and give it a more feminine touch. I love the mix and grunge and glam in a space.

Accent Lighting

I would love to have a large feature piece like a chandelier or a beautiful set of accent pendants. A dark space needs more than one layer of light to help with ambiance during all times of the day. Simply lamps or recessed lighting won’t do the trick as the only source of light.

Texture

If you’ve seen my bedroom tour, you know I love texture as opposed to color. I’d love to bring in different textures with wood flooring, tiled fireplaces, mirrored accent pieces, metal lighting, and a plethora of fabric types.

The mixture of all of these will create the perfect dark glam space that I envision as my dream great room. I can’t wait to own my own property where I am allowed to make changes like these to create my dream space. What does your dream living room look like? I would love to know!
