Main floor renovation

Our client Shauna left for a month and gave us the go ahead to transform her main living space.  We took it from this...

To this...

Shauna's remodel included new paint in all main living spaces, trim detail and wainscoting, painting of cabinets and addition of back-splash, sanding and re-staining wood floors, new carpet in living room, draperies and pillows and accessories.  We are so happy with how bright and inviting her space is now.  Thanks for letting us rejuvenate your home Shauna!

Adding Drama

There are so many beautiful accessories right now in the gold and brass tones.  I love how they all came together in my front room. 

I've had these picture frames for years.  I love that they have the brass inlay, so they still work perfectly in the space.  This sunburst mirror is one of my favorites and is the perfect glint of sparkle on this stair wall.

 The room has high vaulted ceilings, so I needed a mirror that would take your eye up.  I found this gem at IKEA.  I really wanted bookshelves, but didn't have the space.  So instead, I used two sets of floating shelves to achieve the same feel.  Now this wall is a statement and adds such sparkle to the space.

 I love the accessories on the shelves.  I had collected most of them as I shopped for other clients.  The only thing I had to purchase to finish the room was the boxwood wreath.

I have a massive front room window, so I needed 7 yards of fabric and lining for the drapes.  When I found this great geometric for $7/yd, I knew I had a winner.  I absolutely love the soft yellow color in the room.

Here's a close-up of the fabric.
When I saw this beautiful gold calligraphy of "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing," I knew it was the perfect finishing touch for the room.  It is my absolute favorite hymn and the perfect words to see as I enter and leave my home.
