Illinois Home Gets a Glam Makeover

iNSPIRE Q is back with another home remodel! This time, we went with a high-luxe glam look for our client. For this Illinois home makeover in particular, we chose a clean, neutral grey color palette throughout.

So when it came time for our designers to pick out the pieces of iNSPIRE Q furniture, they wanted to go with subtle pops of color and sleek, Art-Deco style. We had a iNSPIRE Q team member paint all the wall art specifically in each room to bring out the personality of the space.

Throughout the entire home, you will notice each room has a different vibe, from timeless and classy to homey and down-to-earth. We purposefully did this because we wanted each room to have its own personality for all to enjoy.

Living Room

Our formal front living room in our Illinois home makeover. The living room  has two grey linen upholstered accent chairs, two grey linen upholstered stools, a grey linen upholstered cocktail ottoman, and a white fabric upholstered tuxedo sofa. Many of the pieces also feature chrome finishes for that glam touch, while blue accent pillows and wall paintings add a pop of color. A fireplace is in the center of the room, between two windows, and has a TV mounted on the wall above it.
Two images of our Illinois home makeover are displayed here. The one on the left is a top-down view of the formal front living room. The image on the right focuses on the left side of the living room, showing the two grey linen upholstered accent chairs, a cabinet, and a grey linen upholstered stool.

Surrounding the table are four grey velvet button tufted parsons chairs and two grey velvet button tufted wingback chairs on the ends. Behind the dining set is a mirrored console table, minimally decorated with blue and silver décor. Hanging above the dining table is a sleek, round chandelier.

At the foot of the bed are two stools, both of which are upholstered in black faux leather. There are three mirrored nightstands in the room, two of which are by the bed while the third is a 3-drawer piece off to the side.
