Finally, I can give a client update. I am really bad about taking my Nikon to appointments to capture client updates….something I really need to work on!
Today, I stopped by to chit chat with my client about a few things and to drop off some accessories.
Maybe you remember this client from a previous post about the free design services available at furniture stores.
She had absolutely no accessories but beautiful expensive furniture to fill her rooms.
Here is a Before photo of her Living Room….
Here is the room done after we accessorized…
What did we do?
First we painted the fireplace wall Benjamin Moore Squirrel Tail to make it stand out as the focal point of the room.
Here is the Before….
I wanted to raw your eye directly to the fireplace, since the furniture placement was so symmetrical and, the built ins were painted the trim color.
The wall color was something the client wanted to keep.
Here is the after…
It is amazing what a quart of the right paint can do!!
Then I brought in tons of throw pillows to draw out the colors in the artwork and the floral in the chairs. I also brought in some lamps with very little height because we did not really need to draw the eye up….those lamps turned out to be the perfect height when lit and you are seated on the sofa. Nobody likes a light bulb that is blinding them when they are sitting trying to relax!
The last thing I did was mix some of their accessories with some I brought in to change the look of the bookshelves. I
t all flows well now and the clients are happy!
The Dining Room was also an issue. Here is what I walked into the first day….
We have since ordered new host and hostess chairs with some pattern.
We also took the rug and moved it into the breakfast area off the kitchen.
A new mirror and artwork for the walls was just what we needed to warm up this room.
Here is what it looks like today but it is still a work in progress…
We have a rug and new chandelier on order.
(And I still don’t love this mercury glass on the credenza…but the client does, and I don’t live there so I better shut it! Just a disclaimer!)
So, things are coming along at this clients house!
I hope to show you all the completed pictures soon!!!
