ITS STILL ONLY JANUARY??? OMG!!! I'm ready for some warm weather…..wouldn't mind escaping the fresh 9" of snow for this "pretend" beach pad….the outside of this house is on Florida's panhandle…..some of the most beautiful beaches ever!!!!!!!!
and guess what? this place is for rent!!
check out the real interior here….. http://www.vrbo.com/169531
but hope you enjoy my "made up" version!
i LOVE high end casual…..unfortunately, just because its casual does not mean its less $$….this "made up" house is a prime example….and i want it!!!…BTW, each photo is taken from a different house….i just loved how they all flowed together-hope you do too!
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….
thank you celerie kemble-your grasscloths are amazing!
a HUGE treat to work in this stunning old home....you feel like you are in the beautiful Battery of Charleston....i LOVE this place....and the homeowners are even better!
here's what the homeowners needed:
1. reupholster everything in the living room
2. add a sisal
3. incorporate a light and bright color scheme that would compliment a recently inherited painting going over the fireplace.
here's a sneak peak of the before......
what else are we doing in the space???? CANNOT WAIT for this!!!
