Recently, here at K Lilia, we have been challenged to create an amazingly stylish Mid-Century inspired living room for our current millennial clients. They are a fun, techy married couple who recently moved from San Francisco to Houston, and desired their new space to reflect the artsy look & retro feel of their hometown.
Our couple have fond affinity for the arts, '60s, culture, and funky items. For this project, we successfully mixed two looks - modern and retro- where clean lines, neutral colors, and various textures combine to create a comfortable ambience for themselves and their guests. A streamlined sofa in soft grey is offset by graphic and unapologetic walnut wood accent chairs with sexy curvatures. Instead of side table, we opted for a rich brown basket to eliminate clutter such as magazines and remote controls.
Lastly, to fully complete this look, we chose artwork that is both provocative and nostalgic to the 1960s. The pillows are the perfect collision of old-fashioned and modern to make for a sweet decorated space. And don't forget the goatskin rug where this couple can cozy up while binge watching their favorite show. One of our favorite things that we did with this design is layer tworugs - its funky, fun, and unique to the personality of this couple.
