Letting it flow between rooms

Jackie Picard

The colors chosen for this small home were overpowering the space. It was too easy to overlook the home’s positive features, especially the hardwood floors. While a great color in another application, the colors used in this space made the home look much smaller, and did not allow the eye to flow from one room to another. As a result, the boundaries between the rooms were very pronounced, decreasing the feel of square footage. When rooms are visually connected, the flow from one room to the next is essential.

Pale taupe with a soft yellow undertone on the walls and ceilings make the space feel more open and connected. The crown moldings in the living room were removed to give the room more visual height and the rugs were removed to help showcase the hardwood floors. Excess furniture was removed to open up the space. Arranging the sofas at angles is more pleasing to the eye by giving the room proportion. A cabinet in the corner adds height to the room, while accessories atop the cabinet draw your eye through the space. A large Boston fern keeps the eye moving from one room to another, enhancing the feeling that this area is open and spacious.
