The World’s First Stop for Interior Design
Sabrina’s Living/Dining Room
What Ava Living designer Rhonda Vandiver has to say about member Sabrina Blasingame’s room.

What works and what doesn't in your room.
The personality of your room is down-to-earth. The mood it engenders is warm, casual, comfortable, and simple.
What a great space to start with! The combined styles of rustic and modern can be tricky to achieve but, when pulled off, can work well together. We agree that toning down some of those honey tones can be a great place to begin. We suggest breaking up the wood floors with area rugs and adding the colors that you love to the space through paint and accessories. The trick will be having the right balance.
Its great that you are willing to paint the molding and trim work. Have you considered painting or staining the cabinetry in the kitchen as well?
Before you purchase furniture and accessories, circulation and functional needs will need to be addressed. The french doors and the opening to the bath and bedrooms will effect your circulation needs and placement of furniture. Defining a focal point in the space, whether it be the angled fireplace or something you add in later, can really help. We would love to assist you in designing this space!
