sleek, sultry, and sophisticated - a LOUNGE space for grown-ups


I am working with a really cool couple right now on a complete main floor makeover. It is such an amazing open-concept space and it is going to look fabulous when we are finished! One room that I am especially excited about is the "grown-up" lounge. Currently a home office, we are saying goodbye to the computer paraphernalia and filing cabinet in favour of sleek mid century modern furniture, a romantic palette, sultry lighting, and a well-stocked bar cart. Yes, please! Debbi - just an FYI - I love a good Appletini!

Here are some of the pieces that we are looking to purchase for the space: 

So, I took these pieces, added in a few others (plus some small hits of colour for interest and pizzazz), and came up with this inspiration board for my clients. 

I think they like it - and what I like most about it is the contrast between the "masculine" and "feminine" elements (for example, the dark, linear lines of the shelving unit, paired with the soft, curved lines of the upholstered bench). I also like the contrast between the cool, smooth hits of chrome and the warm, organic feel of the capiz pendant and the silk accent pillows. What do you think? 

The only decision left to make is whether to have a Cosmopolitan or an Apple-tini! 

Until next time,
