RL Makeovers: A Warm and Welcoming Living Room

Interior designer Vera Villarosa transformed the family area of this townhouse in the city

After staying in this townhouse for 18 months, homeowners Marc and Sandee Albar were ready to change their living room. The couple wanted to turn it into an inviting space that would be perfect for spending time with their children and entertaining their guests.

Interior designer Vera Villarosa started by keeping the big orange sofa that used to be by the window. Since the children often put their feet up, she had a slipcover made to hide the footprints. The cushions were also reupholstered. The two armchairs facing the sofa were replaced with a two-seater tufted couch from Metro Gaisano. To provide more seating space for guests, two ottomans were custom-made and upholstered in the same fabric used for the curtains.
