Kacie wrote to me about the blank wall in her living room. She has a lot of great pieces but is a little stuck on pulling it all together.
She recently received the rug as a gift, and I think it works really well with the dark gray sectional. Just so you can get a better feel of the overall look of her space, here’s a shot of the other side of the room:
Believe it or not, I’m going to suggest taking away the big pop of color in the form of the coral china cabinet. I think the color is a little too loud and should be toned down for a more sophisticated look. I’d also take away the big ottoman and the matching pillows on the sectional. Too many dark colors are weighing down the space.
Overall, I think this corner just needs to feel a little lighter. I would suggest repainting that pretty china cabinet in a glossy black. (Kacie said she was open to this, so I’m not springing a job on her!) Then I’d add color back in—along with pattern—in the form of pillows. I’d add a trio of art prints on the wall above the sofa and change out the horse art between the windows for a small gold mirror so that it’s not all competing. I also like the idea of adding more metallic touches in the form of an end table and a glass coffee table.
