Cluttered Country to Global Chic

You don’t have to get rid of all your existing furniture to create an entirely different look for your tired or outdated rooms; a good design plan can work wonders. This design, inspired by the homeowners’ collection of native masks and art, included new paint colours and upholstery fabrics, new draperies, and a new streamlined glass coffee table. Adding a new fireplace mantel and bookshelves provided much-needed storage and created a dazzling focal point. “MaryLynne kept our treasured pieces,” noted one of the homeowners,” so that while we now have a totally transformed and beautiful space, it still feels like us!”
