Rarely do glamour and glitz strike such a sophisticated balance. Yup, this particular Havenly design is special. Every design detail, right down to the last delightful throw pillow, makes us swoon.

And despite the stunning finished space – a true example of eye candy – this project had a relatively common starting point. Havenly client Tiffany M. filled us in:

“Initially, I hired a local designer to help me… I never was able to get the design just right and the time used to alter the design was getting expensive! I saw an ad for Havenly and fell in love with the the concept.”

Designing Tiffany’s Glamorous Living Room

Selecting A Designer

Selecting a Havenly designer

Selecting a designer on Havenly couldn’t be easier. Try it! But don’t just take us at our word. Take us at Tiffany’s word, too:

“I was impressed with the number of designers to choose from and was able to select a designer whose aesthetic more closely aligned with my own, making the process a much easier, smoother one.”

Tiffany selected Meghan as her Havenly designer and began the process of designing her dream space!

The Design Concepts

Concept One
Concept Two
After discussing the project together, Meghan sent Tiffany some design concepts as well as an explanation on how she made her design choices.


“For concept 1, a rich navy velvet sofa commands attention in the space. Bold, leopard pillows accessorized on the couch add a fun and playful touch, while abstract artwork above the sofa introduces color and depth to the space. A fuzzy white faux fur rug anchors the room and intensifies the glamorous vibe. Blush ottomans act as another neutral and provide additional seating. The frames also pick up the pink undertones in the painting. Your existing coffee table and side table blend perfectly in the space and are complemented by a hammered drum and round accent table. Lastly, navy and white stripe drapes exude the perfect amount drama on the widows.

For concept 2, I incorporated your existing pieces such as the coffee table, side table, and salmon rug to make a fresh, playful space. The luxurious tufted Chippendale couch is the perfect place to sit by the fire. It is accessorized with navy ombre and leopard pillows, as well as your large fuzzy throw pillows. Abstract paintings above the sofa are set in gold frames and introduce additional color and interest. Velvet navy slipper chairs mirror the couch and provide additional seating and create a perfect space for entertaining. Finally, white curtains provide a calming backdrop for the room.”


“OMG!!! How beautiful are these concept boards?! Thanks so much for all the hard work you put into them – they are both GORG but Concept 1 really stood out to me!”

The Design Rendering

Full Havenly design packages come with room renderings, and they’re usually one of the most anticipated parts of the design process.

With such dramatic and bold colors, we would expect this type of room to feel outlandish. Yet in both renderings, it’s the complete opposite. Perfectly styled and comfortable, this bright and welcoming space is perfect for entertaining, relaxing or simply soaking up the sweet style vibes.

A Sea Of Style

Looking at Tiffany’s new space makes us feel like we’ve leapt from the deck of a yacht into a sea of glam elegance and bold swagger. So refreshing!

Style Secrets


Want to know a secret about styling this type of room? Two words: bold pattern. Strategically placed, pattern works to unite the various design elements used in this lively style of decorating. You’ll notice the geometric patterns in the mirror and coffee table, not to mention the more subtle patterns in the vases. Look closely and you’ll see little bits of pattern pulling their weight throughout this dreamy space.
