It’s Sonja Morgan’s (second) living room and she’ll redesign it five ways if she wants to.
During the season finale of the Real Housewives of New York, Sonja turned to Modsy’s New York interior designers to help virtually design her Manhattan townhouse five ways.
Ready to “revamp and revitalize” her formal living room, Modsy got to work transforming Sonja’s space into five completely different designs. Starting from scratch, we created an exact 3D model of her space, from the ornate fireplace to the fabulous de Gournay wallpaper.
Tour the five looks below!
Design 1: An eclectic take on a classic look
Sonja’s yellow de Gournay wallpaper takes center stage in this design. Paired with classic motifs and pieces with traditional shapes, this design is an eclectic take on a classic aesthetic.
The yellow wallpaper adorned with tropical fauna creates the perfect backdrop for chinoiserie accents, such as the bamboo motifs that harken back to classical European interior design. The marbled wool rug washes the space with a layer of chic sophistication, which keeps the design feeling fresh and modern.
We love this look because it mixes colorful and classic elements together for a look that is both fresh and timeless.
Design 2: Minimal Chic with a Modern Edge
Black, white, and wood? Yes please! In our second redesign we stripped the wallpaper and painted the room all in white for a less is more take on Sonja’s space. This design takes her living room to new graphic heights with over-sized prints paired with understated, geometric furnishings.
Layers of geometric forms, raw materials, and modernist silhouettes create a space that celebrates minimalism with an edge.
We love this look for anyone who loves a refined and minimal look but still craves a healthy serving of drama on the side.
Design 3: An Industrial Lounge with a feminine twist
This look might be more dramatic than all 9 seasons of the Real Housewives combined. Oxblood leather panels adorn the walls, transforming the room into an intimate enclosure that evokes a 1950s smoking lounge vibe. The iconic Barcelona lounge chair creates a modernist focal point while the velvet chesterfield sofa seems like the perfect place to drape oneself with a martini.
We love this moody design because it serves up an industrial look with a decidedly feminine edge.
Design 4: A Bohemian Hampton Beach House
Easy and breezy, this design takes an eclectic approach to a Hamptons beach house look. We love the combination of natural materials with the classic formal architecture, and the traditional pieces paired with more eclectic accents.
This take on Sonja’s living room is polished but still approachable and on-trend. We love it for anyone who wants a space that looks formal but feels comfortable.
Design 5: A Minimalist take on Hollywood Glam
Sitting at the crossroads between luxury and minimalism, Sonja’s final living room look is a modern take on old school glam. Minimal ornamentation, this space is all about color, texture, and form.
The design flaunts a teal paint job paired with a teal sofa, along with black and white checkered marble floors for an extra pop of drama. A pair of pink velvet chairs inspired the abstract, grassy pink mural on the back wall.
One of our favorites, this design is saturated in color and is the look for anyone who loves Hollywood glam without the extra frills.
