Old Home – New Style

Lindy Donahue, Interior Designer in our Lancaster store, took the living room of this 100 year old home from average to WOW! Because the homeowner was totally onboard with bringing in fresh style, Lindy was free to blend bold color and updated furniture with some of their antique heirlooms. The result: stunning!

The living room is long and narrow, making for awkward furniture arrangement, but the homeowner and Lindy agreed to make the most out of the space by creating two seating areas, anchored by gorgeous area rugs. Several of the windows had radiators at the base, making traditional long panels impossible. Lindy created the perfect solution with dramatic, custom side swept panels that nod to the tradition of the home while giving it updated chic.

Just inside the front entry is this inviting parlor. Lindy carried the accent color of the living room into this space with a pair of luxurious Wesley Hall Leather accent chairs. A favorite heirloom settee was recovered in a Wesley Hall animal print fabric. The two rooms work together beautifully.
