What we are working on next?

While I am trying to finish up a few small projects, I am moving on to my clients Great Room.

This is a huge open living room that is central to the home. It can be seen from the Dining Room and Entryway, so we are finishing those small projects to begin this one that is a bit more complex.

There are many problems in this room.

The first being the furniture desperately needs to be updated. There is also a need for a new entertainment configuration. The current cabinetry only can accommodate a tiny TV, which suits neither of my clients. They love sports and they love to entertain in this room….this is not working!

We have chosen some inspiration pictures and plan to put slate or stacked stone on the chimney with a new mantle, maybe barn wood or reclaimed? We are currently waiting for a few contractor quotes to give us an idea of what type of profile we can have on the stone with compromising the built in cabinetry.

What do y’all think of painting the built in’s a dark tone like the middle inspiration picture? I am working on convincing them….

We also need new flooring and are exploring carpet options to keep things warm and cozy on the feet.

The rest of the common areas of the home will be painted Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore, so we will be looking to coordinate accent colors with that tone.

So, this is what we have to work with….

I have to say, I love this house and these clients! This has to be the best job I have ever had.

I hope to update you soon with progress.

I know the results are going to be gorgeous!
