About this project

This young family’s living room was uninviting and not really functional for their lifestyle.  Adding custom built-ins around the fireplace transformed the look of the room and provided much-needed closed and open storage in this older home.  Adding bench seating in the bay window with a dining table provided a space to play cards, board games, or just sit and gaze out the window with a cup of coffee.  Comfortable, lightweight chairs that are easily relocated between the main sitting area and the dining table provide additional function in this compact room.

Before & After

Before After
My wife and I were tired of our outdated, cluttered and boring living room. We are fortunate to have hired Michelle Ku to guide us through every step of transforming the room into a beautiful, comfortable area where we enjoy entertaining and relaxing. Michelle made the daunting tasks of selecting new furniture, window treatments, fabrics and paint colors simple and fun. I especially appreciate her ability to coordinate the logistics of our project; tasks, like ordering furniture and locating reputable contractors, were made much easier. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone looking to revitalize their living space.
