Working with a budget of $30,000, designer Susan Jamieson, ASID, brings glamour and elegance to this Richmond living room through flowing draperies, furniture with curved lines and beautiful architectural details.
We spoke with Susan to see how she tackled challenges and incorporated her clients' goals into this remodel.
The original room was stuck in the '80s with peach Austrian shades and peach walls that overwhelmed the space. I wanted to showcase the architectural features in the room instead of overwhelming the room with color and pattern.
Letting in the light and brightening the space. By doing this, I was able to show off the beautiful moldings and 1920s mantel.
All the rooms are open to each other: the foyer, living room, dining room and music room. It forms an open square, and I needed to create continuity as well as uniqueness.
It went according to plan, including adding a custom snakeskin mirror, a custom fire screen and coffee table combined with a family piece, the Empire sofa and Barbara Barry modern chairs. It was a true mix of modern and classic.
I loved the use of only whites and creams. Layering with textures was challenging.
Taking the old green velvet sofa, modernizing it with a white quilted pattern and then pairing it with the curved-back Barbara Barry chairs.
