Before and After: A LIV Client Takes the Reigns
LIV Showroom offers a variety of Design Packages that allow the do-it-yourself client to take control and manage their project, while getting guidance, assistance and advice from one of our professional designers.
Leslie Hansen of Bountiful, Utah, purchased our most popular package called LIV COMFORTABLY in the fall of 2013. Designer Tonya Olsen provided Leslie with a "road map" including a floor plan with dimensions; furniture and accessory recommendations; a color palette; a digital design board and an instructions page.
One of the biggest differences Leslie made in her home was rearranging the furniture and accessories. Her formal living room furniture was swapped with her basement furniture and the result is dramatic. Check it out:
In addition to the formal living room, Leslie also worked on her family room, adjacent dining area and study. Leslie kept her existing furniture and added "pops" of color to make the room more casual, but also to tie in the colors from her formal living room.
The take away from Leslie's project is that you can transform your home yourself (with a little help from LIV) with your existing furniture and some simple additions. In a nutshell, here are the main things Leslie did:
- Rearrange existing furniture
- Update with accessories such as pillows
- Update paint in certain rooms if necessary
- Add window treatments
- Use existing artwork and photographs to create a gallery wall
- Add an area rug to anchor a space
- Reframe existing artwork and repaint existing furniture
In the end, Leslie did a great job!
As always, stay tuned!
