Cincinnati designer uses her home as inspiration
Feb 15 2011
Interior designer Liz McGavran's 30-year-old Hyde Park condo is not only a wonderful place to live, but a way to show potential clients her skills in weaving artwork, furnishings and color into a cozy living space, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer.
Solar screen shades could be a welcome addition to your home decor that eliminate glare and still allow a view to the outside.
McGavran lucked out when she purchased her condo in mid-2005. The previous owners had completely renovated the interior to maximize traffic flow, which gave the designer a blank slate to work with.
Liz uses many textures in her designs and to combines contemporary styles with functional old world furnishings, and her connected living and dining room is a testament to that fact. Her living room is a cozy arrangement of a modern sofa, matching vintage armchairs and an oversized ottoman, which doubles as a coffee table to save space.
The sofa is covered with a champagne-colored chenille fabric, colorful silk pillows and the arm chairs and ottoman are soothing shades of cranberry and medium-brown ultrasuede. This merging of old world style and modern day convenience is the hallmark of McGavran's designs.
Solar screen shades could be the perfect match for your home. The shades provide excellent energy-efficiency, eliminate glare and still allow a view to the outside.
