Before & After: Mid-Century Makeover
October 25, 2019 in Before & After | no comments

This week we wrapped up a new project in Travis Heights, a historic neighborhood in South Austin. The homeowners wanted to start fresh in their newly purchased home with new furnishings in their main living spaces. They preferred the mid-century modern style, which complements the architectural style of the home even though it was built in 1928! Read along as we share more in our latest Before & After blog post.

Before Family Room

In the family room, the couple did not have much that they wanted to keep. However, they knew that they wanted to use the space primarily for TV watching and lounging. Also they did not want a sectional, but wanted the space to have plenty of comfortable seating.

Here is another view of the family room. It had a ton of potential to be the modern and stylish space the homeowners wanted it to be.

Before Dining Room

In the dining room, the homeowners had two pieces that they wanted incorporate into the design of their space: their existing dining table and buffet. They also requested a light fixture that was more modern and impressive. This space opens up to the family room so we wanted to ensure that the main spaces felt cohesive and flowed together.

After Family Room:

What a makeover! The room looks so inviting and pulled together now.

We kept with a neutral color scheme with accents of black, blue and tan. In this room, you will find two modern plush sofas and a pair of accent chairs surrounding a hammered brass cocktail table and a pair of tan leather poufs. Dark pillows, including dark shag pillows, add to the cozy and casual vibe of the room.

Here is another view of the family room and the new blue rug.

Lastly to soften the room, we framed the windows and existing shades with linen draperies. The color palette and mix of finishes make this Travis Heights family room look cool and collected.

After Dining Room

French doors open up to the dining room. With a few new pieces, the dining room looks fresh and stylish.

A gold mirror and starburst chandelier give the dining room some spunk and edge. White crackle lamps brighten the room, while the new dusty blue dining chairs add to the consistent color story of the main spaces.

We are so pleased with how this project turned out. If you are curious how our design services work, start with our questionnaire or give us a call.
