Lake Residence


Awhile back, I shared details of how I went about selecting multiple rugs for a family room I was helping a client with.  If you would like to read the post, click here.  

Today, I am sharing more details about the space.  Here are the pictures that show what the space looked like before any changes were made.



As you can see the first item on the agenda was paint.  Along with painting the walls and ceiling, I suggested painting all the wood trim, bead board, window casings and cabinets white.  We decided to go with Sherwin Williams Silver Strand for the walls and an off-white for the wood.

Besides a sectional and sofa table that the client already owned, the entire room needed new furnishings.  Below, is the initial mood board showing the other furniture pieces I
selected for the space. 

As sometimes happens in the design process, a few changes had to be made after the furniture pieces were initially picked.  

My client found a bistro table and chairs at a local furniture shop that fit wonderfully into the design, so we ended up going with this set instead of the table and chairs I had selected.

 The pretty green chest and bench suddenly became unavailable so I choose this cute wood and metal piece and new bench that had a similar look to the original one selected.



And lastly, we changed the end table to go in between the 2 club chairs to this:


Later on this week, I will be showing the completed room.  But, here is a little sneak peek!

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.

Add pops of color.

Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

How to NOT make a TV a focal point

I like T.V. just as much as the next person - every Monday night you will find me right in front of it glued to The Bachelor/ette!  Even still, I don't like it when a huge flat screen T.V. is the main attraction in a space.  I don't think a T.V. necessarily needs to be hidden from sight,  just placed somewhat inconspicuously.  There are all sorts of nifty contraptions out there for framing, making it appear as a mirror when off, having a motorized framed piece of art slide over it,etc - all fantastic solutions, but all very expensive solutions. Below are some awesome ways to tastefully place a T.V. in a room without it being the focal point of the room or breaking the bank.

Surround it with art.  All the blacks in the art help to make the black screen not stick out so much. source
