Living Room Floorplan

I have a new project helping a client with their living room.  First thing on the list is to figure out the furniture layout of the room.  Here are the floor plan images I sent to my client to convey the best layout for the space.
(Please note all of these images are void of accessories, art, pillows,  lamps, etc.  We have not gotten to that point yet!  The primary purpose of these visuals are to establish the furniture layout.)




We are just getting started, there is much work to be done!

Dining Room Before & After Shots

I just wanted to share a dining room transformation!
Here is the 'After' Shot.
The great thing about this transformation is that it only took a few changes to really make it shine! We picked out a graphic and bold fabric for new custom drapery panels.  We kept the same drapery rod and hardware.  In addition, we also selected a new wool looped rug to replace the oriental one that my client had grown tired of.  The last major change, was the paint color. Changing the wall color to a beautiful gray really helped to brighten the space.  The same gray color was already in the foyer and living room, so painting the dining room the same color really helped with flow. My client did a great job finding new lamps and mirror to replace the old.

This is what the room liked like before.
And again here is the after!

3D Floorplans and Room Shots

Sometimes my clients have a hard time envisioning a new furniture layout and design in their home.  I recently began using a new program that allows me to show my clients 3D floor plans, along with various 3D room shots. To give you an idea of what I am able to do with this new program I am going to share with you a current living room project of mine.
This is a snap shot of my messy, handwritten notes of the clients room.  I get all the nitty gritty measurements during the initial in-home consultation.

With all of these measurements, I create a basic black and white 2D floorplan.  Not too exciting, but necessary to understand the basic idea.


Afterwards, I create a polished & visually appealing 3D floorplan. 



Along with the 3D floorplan, I also create various 3D room shots to present to the client.





Once my client agrees to the layout and design, I go to work making the design a reality!

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 …

Orange and Mineral Blue Living Room Design

Today, I am sharing a living room design that I completed awhile back. My client selected all the flooring and light fixtures, & then hired me to help select all the paint colors and to decorate the entire home.


This is a quick (and bad!) photo of the living room once the floors were installed and walls had been painted.


Before I began selecting furniture, my client showed me a few photos of living rooms that she liked and the colors she had in mind for the space. In addition, she really wanted to incorporate an orange rug & a sectional.
I found this wool orange lattice rug.  It was a great price and she liked it, so I began building the design around it.


Here is the mood board I put together for my client to help convey the design.

In addition I drew a floor plan showing the furniture layout. 

Once all the furnishings were agreed upon the purchasing began.  After all the furniture was delivered and in place, I brought in accessories to finish off the space.
Here are some of …
