Reader's room - What a view!

Room_makeover_2 A Pure Contemporary reader, and Contemporary Furniture customer, shares their modern room makeover.

Situated on the Lake Erie waterfront, our condo gets an unobstructed view of the boats traveling up and down the channel each day. At night the view becomes sensational as the sun sets to west in direct view of my windows. I love my view from the windows -- and now I love the view inside our condo. To liven up our space we teamed up with our designer Christine Kenyon of Advance Furniture and mapped out what we wanted to do.

I wanted a central living/entertaining area that wouldn’t obstruct the view looking out. Christine suggested the organic look of American Leather's Menlo Park. This curved sectional sweeps throughout the center of the room, allowing easy access while providing ample seating. Facing the windows overlooking the lake, the couch also faces a maple wall unit. The maple hardwood floor and kitchen cabinets, as well as the maple-based coffee table from Elite manufacturing, unify the space together.

While the area is soft and warm in color we added splashes of red ultrasuede for excitement. The back pillows and the seats of the Elite manufacturing barstools boost the color palette for an exciting flare. The finishing touch is the custom carpet from Carpet Creations. Christine designed the perfect rug to sweep along with the sectional, be simple in design, and tie in all the elements of our home.

Gorgeous! (Although it's about the room layout, it would be nice to see a 2nd photo that includes the view.)
