Long Distance Design: From Chicago to Pennsylvania

A recent client of mine moved outside of Philadelphia for her residency.  She has a great apartment with a lot of living space and needed help selecting most furniture pieces and accessories.  The living room opens up into the dining room/kitchen, which also needed to be designed.  The main living area needed to serve two functions, one for relaxing & entertaining and the other for a work/desk area, which she already had.

I love her description of style, which is modern but comfortable - definitely something that we can do!  She also likes deep plum colors with bright accents.  We achieved this by bringing in large furniture pieces with clean lines and introducing color through smaller furniture pieces and accessories.

I wanted the small dining area to feel like its own space, but we had to bring over similar color to keep the space flowing from one room to the next.  Space for dining is short, so adding in a double sided drop leaf table will allow for extra room for everyday needs & a larger table when entertaining.

If you have any questions about any of the items, just let me know.  If you're interested in Long Distance Design, click here to find out more information!

I love the idea of this long distance design and will 100% be using it when I move into a new home! Where is the plum pillow from?

We have that dining room table and it's brilliant for small spaces!
