Living Room Refresh

Living Room Refresh I recently had the opportunity to do a Living Room Refresh for a client who wanted an updated look with new furniture, furnishings, and decor.  I did a rendering for her so she could visualize the space with all the changes.  I think one of the hardest parts of the design process for clients is visualizing how a room’s going to look, so renderings are a really helpful tool for interior designers.
