SYLVAN: THE LATEST!

YOU MAY REMEMBER A COUPLE OF OTHER SPACES
 WE HAVE WORKED ON IN THIS AMAZING WATERFRONT HOME........
WE STARTED IN THEIR DAUGHTER'S BEDROOM 
AND THEN THE GUEST ROOM....
LATELY,  WE'VE BEEN TRANSFORMING THE MASTER BEDROOM AND FOYER.
SO COME ON IN!!!
AND DON'T MISS THE NEW WALLPAPER IN THE HALL!!

GRAY WAS MY CLIENT'S DESIRED COLOR PALETTE. 
SHE FOUND A BEAUTIFUL RUG THAT PROVIDED THE PERFECT GRAYS 
TO WORK OFF OF!
MY CLIENT ALREADY HAD THIS GORGEOUS ANTIQUE BENCH IN HER MASTER BEDROOM. WE JUST REUPHOLSTERED IT AND ADDED THE BLUE NECK ROLL TO COMPLIMENT THE FANTASTIC ART!

THE PLATINUM SILK DRAPERIES OFFER A SOPHISTICATED FEEL
IN THIS RELAXED SETTING-LOVE HOW IT FRAMES THEIR AMAZING VIEW!

HOW COULD WE NOT USE THIS LINEN PRINT FOR THE SHAMS?




AND THE MASTER BATH?........
WE COULDN'T HELP OURSELVES....
 WE HAD TO SEE MORE OF THE EURO SHAM PRINT!

REMEMBER THAT WALLPAPER FROM THE FIRST PIC?
STY TUNED FOR NEXT WEEK'S BLOG TO SEE MORE !!

BEFORE AND AFTER: GLENEAGLES LIVING ROOM...SNEAK PEAK

THIS FAMILY WAS DUE FOR A CHANGE. 
THEY DECIDED TO KNOCK OUT ANOTHER DOORWAY
 INTO THE NEIGHBORING SPACE, BUT ALSO WANTED
 TO TOALLY REVAMP THE ROOM.
THE WANTS?
A LIGHTER AND BRIGHTER MORE COMFORTABLE SPACE FOR THE ENTIRE 
FAMILY TO HANG OUT IN…..BUT MAINTAIN THE LOOK
 OF A FORMAL LIVING ROOM WITH A CONTEMPORARY TWIST.
WE HAD SOME EXISTING ANTIQUES…. 
AND THEY BOUGHT A FANTASTIC ENORMOUS PAINTING
TO GO OVER THE SOFA

HERE'S THE BEFORE…….



AND THE AFTERS…….




THE LARGE SCALE LAMPS AND SOFA PILLOWS HELP BALANCE THE WEIGHT OF THE PAINTING…THE VINYL WRAPPED COFFEE TABLE GIVE US THE 
"CONTEMPORARY" WE NEEDED FOR CONTRAST WITH THE HOMEOWNERS TRADITIONAL END TABLES.


I WANT FAMILY GAME NIGHT AT THIS HOUSE!
 THE DISTRESSED CHAIRS OFFER A MORE RELAXED FEEL.



SEE THE EMPTY SPACE TO THE RIGHT OF THE WINDOW?
THIS ART PIECE WILL BE HANGING THERE VERY SOON!








AND ONE MORE TABLE IS COMING! 
CANT WAIT FOR IT'S NEW HOME!!!

BEFORE AND AFTER: NORTH SHORE FOYER

  THIS FOYER DIDN'T QUITE MEASURE UP TO THE SOPHISTICATED STYLE OF THE HOUSE. THE HOMEOWNER HATED THE WALL COLOR AND REALLY WANTED A CHANGE.....
MY THOUGHTS?
 WE NEEDED A LARGE CHEST TO ANCHOR THE WALL....WE NEEDED A BIG MIRROR AND LAMP TO BRIGHTEN UP THE SPACE. AND WE NEEDED UPHOLSTERY TO SOFTEN IT UP AND GIVE US SOME COLOR......
OTHER WALL BEFORE....

AND AFTER! 
WHO CARES ABOUT SYMMETRY AS LONG AS YOU HAVE  BALANCE!

AS USUAL, I'M ALWAYS INSPIRED BY MY CLIENT'S ART!
LOVE  LOVE LOVE THIS PAINTING AND IT WAS HIDING IN THE BATHROOM!!! 
WE STOLE IT FOR THE FOYER AND LET THE COLOR SCHEME DICTATE ALL THE FINISHES / COLORS....



THIS INTAGLIOS SERIES REALLY HELPED TO WIDEN THE WALL....BIGGER BRIGHTER FOYER!



AND BTW, A FABULOUS WINDOW TREATMENT IS IN THE WORKS-STAY TUNED :-)
