Residential Interior Design, living room, Great Neck Long Island NY
I have had the pleasure of designing the interiors of many splendid homes in Great Neck but this was one of my favorite projects. The homeowner, Ronnie, was a successful single woman in her 60’s. Upon our initial consultation she expressed an aversion to the color black. She liked the colors coral and turquoise. We decided to give it a transitional look and use accents of coral and turquoise. The room was long and narrow and I suggested building the sofa into a nook which created interest and personality to the room. The shape of the sofa in a “U” which complements the space and invites interaction and conversation among guests. I also had grass cloth adhered to the back of the wall unit to provide texture which gave the nook a warm, cozy feel while also helping to pleasantly balance the acoustics of the room.
Opposite the seating nook, I designed a custom wall unit which tastefully housed the entertainment center. We stayed with simple lines as we wanted to create a classic transitional look. As far as Ronnie’s aversion to black, we did purchase a clock for the kitchen with black trim. Ronnie says it was brown and I laughed and said, “It’s ok, you just stepped a little bit out of your comfort level.” Ronnie was thrilled with the design of her new living room and other rooms. Her home eventually caught the attention of House Magazine and was featured in the July/August 2009 issue.
