For this #FlashbackFriday I’m sharing this tiny condo located in Eastlake.
This young couple wanted to update their furniture, paint color, and create a more light, bright and inviting space to start entertaining friends and family. We used their beautiful artwork as inspiration and the jumping off point for the design.
Again, this design was about choosing smart pieces that could work not only in this condo, but easily adapt into their next home. We opted for a light gray paint color throughout, which made the condo feel so much more open and bright.
Even in a small space, creating areas for the different activities that take place is important. One of the homeowners worked from home, so it was important to create a designated work space. Placing the desk behind the sofa created the feel of an office space in this open floor plan. It also doubles as a console table during dinner parties - and a place to set a drink.
A fabric ottoman is a great double-duty furniture piece. For everday life, just place a tray on it and you have a coffee table that is comfortable to put your feet up on; and for those times when you are entertaining, it easily creates extra seating for guests. We chose performance fabric that is easy to clean, because spills happen.
Adding pops of colors, and layering textures create the warm and inviting space the clients were looking for. Grounding it all with a soft, colorful rug makes the space feel cozy and welcoming. And we love adding interesting objects for interest.

This condo went from a dark and sparse home to a cozy and comfortable space perfect for entertaining. And having happy clients is always the best response I could ever ask for!
What do you think? Is this somewhere you could put your feet up?
