I feel like I am FINALLY getting a handle on things again. I have had some great decorating clients that have kept me quite busy over the past few months. This week I have two of my most time consuming ones 99% wrapped up. Would be 100% finished if the deliveries would just come already. I will take better pics once they are completely finished.
The first was more of a revamping. The owner had it done 7 years ago, but was ready for something lighter and younger feeling. The room gets really dark and all the dark brown was making it fall flat. What I did was add a new coffee table, had custom pillows and slipcovers made, added art, and re-accessorized with a few new things, but mostly used her current things in new ways. The whole room feels so different! I just love how reworking a few pieces really can change up a whole space. It also shows how buying well thought out pieces from the beginning and investing in a few good pieces really can carry you throughout life.
Now this job really did take over my life for a bit. Ha. It was a condo for newlyweds. My job was to make two decidedly different tastes become one. We used mostly all there current pieces with the addition of new living room furniture, bedding, bath accessories, etc. Really all the things they had yet to own. My job was to make it all feel cohesive. I must say this is much harder than one would think. It really makes me have to think outside of the box to make some pieces work and to make it all flow together well. This condo is a rental so we could only do so much and I wanted to ONLY invest in things that they can use in their next home. For this room in particular the chairs were the Mr's and I recovered them, the table was actually the landlords table and she said I could use it for this project, the art is a suzani the Mrs had and I had framed. This space is small and I wanted it to become a space for her to come have breakfast and do her morning prayer time. A sanctuary of sorts.
Now to get officially back to my blogging schedule next week! I've miseed this! Hope you all are well...
