While the room is spacious and bright, the lack of design and space planning leaves much to be desired.
We all love a good sectional, but they aren't always best for the space.
Placing the new sofas facing each other on either side of this half wall defines the space and makes it cozy!
These cabinets behind each sofa give the homeowners a space to store toys and household items without compromising on design.
Rather than adding more large pieces of furniture on this side of the room, designer Alex opted for these simpler chairs that allow the space to remain open and airy.
The original eating area doesn't have a focal point that grabs your gaze.
The larger table and new light fixture centers this space.
Something as simple as painting the handrails and bannisters on the stairs can instantly change the look of a room!
These high, vaulted ceilings have incredible potential!
One of the most impactful changes Alex implemented in this room was painting the beams on this vaulted ceiling. The contrast between the black beams and the white ceiling brings the design to the top of the room and ties everything together!
Sybille's challenge with this living room was to make the design feel as light as the space. The heavy, dark and leather furniture doesn't feel cohesive with the natural white brightness of the room.
Sybille brilliantly laid out all the pieces in this room and intelligently used the space in a way that makes the room feel cozy but not cramped.
By adding the two chairs opposite the couch, Sybille was able to add seating without making that section of the room feel too closed off.
The layout of the room needs to be re-thought to make better use of all the extra space!
While the judges didn't love the deer head, the homeowners insisted on keeping it, so Sybille gave it a face lift by painting the antlers in a fun color that goes well with the rest of the design!
This home's arched doorways are an architectural element that, when incorporated properly, can complement Sybille's design beautifully.
Sybille added this shelving unit in an inset arch that matches the doorways of the home perfectly and looks like it has always been there!
