Living room design and fireplace remodel.

After working with us to remodel a previous home, this young, charismatic Austin-based couple came to the SSID team for help updating their current living space. The family had one primary design goal: to create a comfy, colorful place where they could gather as a family with their two young children. 

True to the SSID process, we started out by making a mood board based on their questionnaire — which included everything from their favorite place to vacation to their favorite movie set.  

In addition to modernizing the fireplace, the team elevated the traditional living space with a modern edge and vintage, Wes Anderson-inspired elements. We layered the living room with eclectic new furniture — including cushy velvet chairs, upholstered footrest, and a sleek accent table — blending different styles, textures, and colors to achieve a warm, elegant, and timeless feel. 

 We adored working with this family because they had imaginative tastes and granted us plenty of room for creative expression. Drawing colors and concepts from their mood boards, we designed a room that honored the original ideas they shared. [Learn more about client mood boards and the SSID creative process.]
