GEORGE Projects: 28th Street

We want to share another project that we've been working on over the last month! Our clients are a great Hermosa Beach couple who are looking to update their main living space...

They were looking to lighten and brighten the space, and keep the room feeling beach casual - after all, they are just steps from the sand! In addition, this room is used frequently for book club gatherings and hanging out with visiting grandchildren, and thus the primary concern for this space was seating. With a large, built-in media cabinet taking up one whole corner, three doorways and three windows, meeting their seating requirement for six to eight was going to take some good planning - especially because they were hoping not to include the isolated window bench as seating. Lastly, wall color and art were to stay.

Emily found this gorgeous, beachy linen from Raoul Textiles, (Miramar in Persimmon), and that was where we started. We love how the pale yellow ties perfectly with the existing wall color and how the persimmon blends well with the wood finish color which is so prominent in the room. Also, while this pattern does feature sand dollars and shells, the beach motifs are subtle and sophisticated...

{By changing this room's color scheme from a complimentary scheme to an analogous scheme, we're making the room have more continuity with the architectural finishes of the house.}

We got busy and here's an image from our presentation...

And the finished floor plan...

The custom wedge sectional sofa provides ample seating for five, the upholstered side chair brings us up to six (the number required for family gatherings), and the two custom ottomans can be pushed in front of the media cabinet when the book club commences. Yay, we made it to eight!

Once all of the furniture components have been finalized by our clients we will reveal them and their sources, and of course, we can't wait to show you the finished before and after!
