I recently met with a new client whose living room needs some loving care. She and her husband are both attorneys and use the space for reading and entertaining. Honestly, right now the kids use the space to make forts out of the sofa cushions, but ideally they'd like to reclaim the space for themselves.
One of the words we agreed upon for the space was "swanky".
Doesn't that conjure up inspirational images for you?
According to the world wide web, which is the source of knowledge for all of us, (wink wink) the definition of swanky is this: stylishly luxurious and expensive. Yep, that sums it up for me! Although I believe that a room can look expensive by simply being put-together, tailored, and styled. Can I get an amen on that?
I'm imagining some charcoal, leather, velvet, amazing lighting, a hit of sparkle, overscaled art, no clutter, and a graphic rug. Are you with me?
Here is some inspiration that got my creative juices flowing:
Would you consider adding some swank to your living room?
