BEFORE AND AFTER: JAMESTOWN CRESCENT DINING ROOM

just as we were almost finished with her last house, my customer decided to move!
my thoughts? THRILLED!!!
don't get me wrong, her last house was amazing….but i LOVE a project!
we started in the dining room…. we had a dark and tired space……but it had AMAZING bones and LOADS of potential!!
my customer was super scared….but trusted my vision. she's an old soul, loves 1940's glam, has phenomenal taste, and appreciates high end stuff….she "liked" her new house, but wanted to fall in love with it…and i love how she's not afraid to take risks…..time to get to work!
what did we have?
- a table and chairs (which she wants to eventually replace)
- chest of drawers
- pair of lamps
i showed her a drapery fabric…and she immediately fell in love!! oh, and she loves silvers / metallics
here's the before….
BEFORE
AFTER

  2. Stop it! That "after" is... what's better than amazing? I had to do a double take to make sure that was the same room as the "before." Wow!
