The client asked designer Jacqueline Palmer to help transform the interior of a small living room, located in his home in new York, in a place where he can have fun and spend time with their friends on weekends, where he can fully relax after work. Palmer decided to play with textures and added the open brick wall, graffiti, brown leather sofa and dark blue carpet.
First look at the living room
District: Harlem, Manhattan
Dimensions: 3.6 x 4.5 meters
The most spectacular element is the sofa in pale leather. It adds brutality to the interior and creates a sensual atmosphere. This is a brand new sofa from the popular producer, but he looks like he has always been here. Color and texture accentuate the brick wall, and warm color makes you want to sit on it and relax.
This room is the center of the house. She is the first thing guests see, the space that connects the kitchen and hallway.
What events happen here: romantic dinners, Lunches, night movie marathons, Championships for video games and informal meetings with friends.
“I had only data on room dimensions, multiple photos and a video, and that was enough for design,” says Jacqueline.
The greatest challenge: to create a design for the room, which is on the opposite end of the country from San Francisco. “We developed the project using email and Google Slides. When all the materials have already been ordered and delivered, I flew to new York to arrange items and select jewelry and accessories.”
The game plan
“First there was the sofa and carpet, they asked the color scheme, and then everything else fell into place,” recalls Palmer.
“We ordered the trim and basic interior (tables etc.) via the Internet, and then bought soft furnishings, paintings and accessories stores in new York.”
Where we started
“We started with a clean slate, getting rid of existing furniture,” — says the author of the project.
And this campaign became a guarantee of excellent result. The conclusion is that to create a unique and attractive design will require courage and a willingness to experiment.
