custom cushion completes room

Like my previous post, this design solution is also all about details. I guess I'm in a detail-oriented mood this week, or it's the joy of seeing the details in a room finally come together.

This client started with a blank slate in her guest garage apartment, but over time we filled it with beautiful and function pieces that any guest would love. (See the room's full design process here.)

The final detail came in this week—— a pretty custom window seat cushion.

This detail ties all other elements of the room together - from the blue paint on the walls (Sherwin-Williams' Rain) and the tan sofa to the custom upholstered funky brown chair and the Company C rug.

The challenge in this space? The client selected the rug for the kitchen space and it is a bit too "cool" color-wise for this space, but she really loved it so I let her keep it. :) I then had to find a window cushion fabric that worked with the rug (the window seat is in the kitchen), but also looked good with the warmer neutral tones in the living space.

Taking a cue from the graphic floral pattern on the chair and the blue color that flows throughout the space, the Robert Allen "Growing Wild" fabric was selected for the window seat cushion. A perfect compliment to the bright rug and the neutral decor.

The client is happy and that means I'm happy. See how well one upholstered piece can brighten a space and tie a room together?

Happy decorating!
