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 :-)

BEFORE AND AFTER: GHENT MASTER SUITE

42 YEARS IN A HOUSE REQUIRES A GREAT EXCUSE TO REMODEL!!!
THIS MASTER SUITE WAS BROKEN UP INTO 3 SPACES THAT SEEMED DISJOINTED.
WE NEEDED A PLAN TO BRING THEM TOGETHER WITHOUT KNOCKING DOWN WALLS.

HERE ARE SOME BEFORE SHOTS.....


MY CLIENT WAS SICK AND TIRED OF THE HEAVY CORNICES, 
BUT WANTED TO MAINTAIN THE FUNCTION OF THE SHEERS AND PANELS.....
AND WANTED SEA FOAM GREEN (YAY!)
TIME TO GET TO WORK!
THE SOLUTION?
FIND A LARGE SCALE WALLPAPER TO MARRY THE BATH AND DRESSING AREA.....
FIND A LARGE SCALE COORDINATING 
FABRIC FOR THE BEDROOM'S ENORMOUS WINDOWS.
THANKS TO THIBAUT AND SARAH RICHARDSON'S NEWER LINE AT KRAVET
WE FOUND THE ABSOLUTE PERFECT SCENARIO!
 COME SEE!

OH I WISH I COULD TAKE THE CREDIT 
FOR SELECTING THIS TILE…..MY CLIENTS HAVE FANTASTIC TASTE!

LOVING OUR SIMPLE LINEN SHADES TO COMPLIMENT THE WALLPAPER!

MY CLIENT FOUND THIS CHAIR AND COVER-PERFECT MATHC TO THE REST OF THE LOOK!

GARAGE CONVERTED GAME ROOM

THIS IS THE HOUSE WHERE EVERYONE LOVES TO GATHER!
MY CLIENT NEEDED VERY KID FRIENDLY DECOR KNOWING THIS ROOM WOULD GET LOTS OF USE!
WE CHOSE A SLIPCOVERED SOFA-EASY TO CLEAN, A FORGIVING FABRIC FOR THE SWIVEL CHAIRS, A VERY FORGIVING AREA RUG, AND DISTRESSED FURNISHINGS THAT CAN HANDLE THE WEAR AND TEAR. 
THE WINDOW TREATMENTS ARE AN AMAZING PRINTED LINEN...A GREAT POP OF COLOR THAT THIS LARGE SPACE COULD HANDLE.


A PAIR OF BENCHES WAS THE PERFECT SOLUTION BY THE POOL TABLE...LOW AND OUT OF THE WAY, THEY PROVIDE AMPLE SPACE FOR POOL STICKS AND ANOTHER COLOR TO COMPLIMENT THE ROMANS

MY CLIENT DID AND EXCELLENT JOB ARRANGING HER FAMILY PHOTOS-WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO DISPLAY!
