I am excited to share with you guys some more inspiration today for another space that is in the works in this Modern Elegance home. At this point, we have ordered the majority of the large pieces of furniture, and my client has had some fun purchasing accessories to fill the spaces once they arrive. There is still lots to do including selecting wall finishes, draperies, lighting fixtures, and other finishing touches, but I generally think if you have the time and patience to complete rooms in stages then you will have the chance to see how it all comes together along the way. Today, I am going to share with you my client’s great room … and that is just what it is! A great, big, beautiful open space. Enjoy!


I have said it before, but this project is truly the most beautiful blank canvas and this room is no exception. The most perfect shade of taupe walls, stunning modern features such as this architectural fireplace wall, and floor to ceiling windows with doors that completely open to the most amazing exterior spaces … Don’t even get me started on these incredible stone floors that I heard were imported from Italy. The draperies in the second photo were just temporary, as we have selected a gorgeous sheer stripe that coordinates with the walls and are sure to look stunning.

In Process

First things first, we ordered not one but two of the most elegant sectionals from Visionnaire to fill up this room (complete with coordinating ottomans and coffee tables). Before ordering, we laid out the dimensions on the floor with blue tape so that we could clearly see the scale and how they would fit in the space. These pieces are on their way here now from Italy, and I can’t wait to see how gorgeous they are in person!

Great Room Inspiration

This room is still a work in progress, as we kind of want to see the sofas in the space before we decide exactly what we put with them, but this is the inspiration board I have been working with. You can see the amazing sofas we ordered and the drapery fabric. For this space, we are working with a very monochromatic color scheme as I want this room to feel very calm, comfortable, and inviting, but we are playing with some fun elements like these incredible wall finishes / wall treatments and I would love to bring in something that is just a little bit edgy as well like this cool light fixture from Mass Furniture. What do you think?

The pieces that have already been ordered are scheduled to arrive sometime in the next month, and I am getting more and more excited each day! I love watching a project evolve, and seeing the inspiration brought to life is so rewarding. Stay tuned for more from this Modern Elegance home feature.
