Posted on September 23, 2014 by 6 | 0 CommentsHappy Tuesday!! As promised, today we are going to share a super fun and colorful install with you!! We had SO much fun working with this sweet client and her husband and we loved that she was all about making this space a fabulous getaway for her growing family...(she and her husband will be adding a sweet baby boy to their nest in a few months :) ) So that you get the full effect and see how this space transformed into what it is now... we wanted to share a few before shots and then A LOT of after pictures!! :)
We are always thrilled when our clients have a good collection of accessories that we can play with! We got lucky with this one- she and her husband had acquired some really cool pieces that not only added to the character of the space, but also expressed their personality! Ashley helped restyle the bookshelves and one of our favorite local artists, Elizabeth Hawke, painted a special piece for the room that just overflowed with color!
We also couldn't do anything with our favorite "movers" who help us on a daily basis!! They are such a big help in putting a room together and dealing with us and all of our requests to move everything a hundred times! We like to think that we keep them entertained too... what could be more fun than 5 women telling a man what to do? haha
...and now for the AFTER pictures.... (that's really what you wanted to see, right?!)
Our sweet client selected this sofa as a starting point, and from there, we selected some vibrant fabrics to bring the room to life! Great design is truly in the details, and this space is chock full of them!
We added new light fixtures, drapery, a new rug, some fun accent pillows, and some fabulous artwork from Amanda Roberson, another of our favorite local artists!
Cocktail table books are a MUST!! Lucky for us, our style savvy client had some great ones! :) ... and lucky for our camera, Ashley wore some fab orange suede loafers on install day! So much happy in just one photo!
On the other side of the room, we used two different accent chairs in neutral tones to offer more seating for when they entertain. The cozy chair on the right is actually a swivel glider... and we have a feeling that their new baby is going to be very happy with it!
We love a styled bookcase! Ps... we knew we had a fun client when we saw navy blue foo dogs on her shelves! (Insert designer happy dance here!)
We are so glad you could tag along with us on our little install journey! I think it's safe to say that Life is entirely more fun in COLOR!! Don't you agree?
Until next time,
