Before & After Interior Redesign-No Cost Decorating



This living room suffered from the “doctors waiting room” effect. That is where all of the furniture is pressed up against the walls. In this interior redesign makeover Kim Smart of Smart Interiors uses the homeowners existing furnishings and accessories and gives the homeowners a fresh new look without spending a dime!

    pls remove those curtains and replace it with white plantation shutters.

    I feel like putting two single chairs together like that is a waste of money. If that was the purpose of purchasing matching chairs the owners were better off buying a darn loveseat.

    Putting the dark colored Sofa against those curtains create a darker atmosphere. The sofas could be positioned in place of the (lighter) chairs and the chairs against the windows. Otherwise with the addition of accessories and wall art, the room does appear cosier.

    That's not true. It was far more kid friendly than  the before look, and she does have to use what's there.It's not her fault there were few thing's that said one year old….. like storage pieces

    For utilizing only what the homeowners had in this space, I believe the designer tied everything together in a very elegant way, adding space and beautiful angles.

    I think the traditional chairs should be with the traditional sofa/loveseat and the contemporary chairs should be off to the side making it feel like a different area. 2 each his own….

    Brrr.. what a terrible room.

    And to add that disgusting black ottoman tops the misery!
    All we need now is some old man , stinking of tabacco or shaving..

    Smart Interiors didn't do enough to LISTEN to the client. They clearly said they used this room for their young child in addition to entertaining guests. The only thing that catered to the child was an ottoman that was there to prevent the child from bumping its head. There was no plan on how to include the space for a child when guests are not around. I do believe a major part of interior design professionals is to LISTEN to your clients.

    Furniture on an angle is very displeasing to the eye. It creates a felling of unease. That's what I was taught in my Interior Design course anyway. Two chairs squashed together is also a "no no."

    The redesign is much more inviting and cozy. There is even open space for the baby to crawl around or to set up a temp play station beyond the furniture. Briliant! Never thought about moving furniture away from walls.

    They need to downsize their furniture, in particular discarding that ottoman.

    I like the furniture change, but the couple's toddler still lives here. Now that her toys have been banished, she'll just entertain herself by smashing the crystal and glass. Or, the designer could have listened to the couple's needs and also worked a play area into some of the open space while using accessories that would be less dangerous and easily damaged.
