Rearranging the living room furniture to define the conversation area makes it cozy and intimate.
A view of the Living Room as you enter. I used his existing furniture, but added window treatments, rugs, pillows, a new light fixture, and accessories.
After: My client’s Wingback chairs were previously in an upstairs bedroom, now they make a wonderful addition to the living room seating.
My client’s favorite chair. His only real question about my concept was “Where will my chair be?” I tried to keep it as close to it’s original spot as possible for him.
After: Farmhouse Bathroom
This antique-style black & white tile was a perfect choice for the new bathroom.
After: The Master Bedroom with original wood shiplap walls and ceiling. I also added some buttery yellow pillows to the bed.
After: I had the floor of the bedroom repainted but wasn’t about to paint over the gorgeous original ship lap walls.
My client’s wife was the artist who completed this painting, so I moved it downstairs to his master bedroom where he could enjoy it every day. The chairs and table were existing within the house. The yellow blanket helped brighten up all of the wood in this room.
After: The rug over the freshly painted floors, some accent pieces to bring more personality, and his blanket chest at the foot of the bed.
The client’s antique quilt fits perfectly in the upstairs hall. We also painted the ceiling & walls, changed the light fixture, added a chair, bookcase, rug, floor lamp, and swivel chair that were all located in other areas of the house.
This hallway previously had a closet at the end which required access. The contractor reversed the door into the bedroom for me and I was able to create a functional reading nook for my book-loving client.
New rug, bedding, wall color, and art for the Queen sized bed.
The recovered settee has a new home in the corner of the green bedroom.
The twin bedroom with new bedding, paint color, upcycled headboards, window treatments, and rug.
The new closet is accessible from the blue upstairs bedroom. Homes this age traditionally didn’t have closets, so this adds a lot of function for the farmhouse.
Previously this room was considered a bedroom, but with the addition of the new upstairs bathroom it needs to function for the home but still be used as a gateway space. My client’s table was previously downstairs, I added a light fixture, wall color, new rug and window treatments. Ready for a game of Scrabble?
After: The Sun Porch – Most of my work here was styling. I added the rug, window treatments, and a new light fixture.
