Today’s post is a continuation of my work at Haven Park! You saw the dining room here, and now here’s the living room reveal. It’s been a pleasure working with my client and truly honored she continues to call Erika Ward Interiors for all of her interior decorating needs.

Now on with the show…the living room before…IMG_9451


The design plan addresses the need for color! The one color I knew she loved was red. The lead fabric I presented was a paisley patterned fabric (which she loved) so I knew I had the supporting colors solidified–yellow, light blue, and java.


We moved her existing side chairs into the dining room to be reupholstered as head chairs and brought in a pair of London chairs from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.

I also brought in the new stone top coffee table and coordinating console table to display her beloved mementos and family photos.

Underfoot is a soft sisal and we decided to turn the patterned rug into runners in the adjacent breakfast area and kitchen.

And here are the reveal…



The artwork above the chairs were collected from the couples travels across the globe. What a meaningful display of conversation pieces and treasured memories spent together.Haven_Park_LivingRoom_ErikaWardInteriors_5

As proposed in the initial plan, we painted the back of the bookcases in Sherwin Williams’ Urbane Bronze. With a dark background just about anything on the shelf makes a grandiose statement, especially the new red accessories!



You’ve probably “met” Justin (my design assistant) via my Instagram. He’s my right-hand man on install days and my female clients love to watch him work 🙂 Nice job, J!


The next photo illustrates the point I drive home during each design consultation, design presentation, or interview. Soft treatments, drapery, roman shades, or otherwise, make the space! My preference is always custom. However, if you purchase retail then be sure they are a perfect fit for your window.


A pair of dummy panels frame the wide expanse of windows without sacrificing natural sunlight.

We didn’t wait for her husband to decide what he wanted to do with the television. With the dramatic transformation, it’s pretty much an afterthought. I love how cozy this room feels and how it perfectly fits their collective tastes!
