as most of you know, i'm a huge fan of kelly green anything. when my client, green, asked specifically for that hue, then told me she loves zebra print, i came up with this bold concept for their family room.
really excited to share this space! we're installing soon, so look out for pics!
design swell. live well!
as promised, it's time to reveal the playroom for the hertzig twins! mom kerri wanted a place for homework and an open space for play. this room came together quickly with some custom elements and fun touches. take a look...
this piece of art was the inspiration for the room. lots of blues and greens with some black thrown in. to balance the strong colors, we painted the walls 'alabaster' by sherwin williams. it's the perfect creamy white backdrop.
to add some interest to the tall ceilings, i chose this sanderson splatter wallpaper.
instead of a traditional pin board, i opted for a magnetic board wrapped in a fun fabric. now the kids have a place to display their art and personalize their work space.
a few more details...
luckily, i was there when the twins came home from school! they were so excited to get in their new room and do homework at their desks for the first time. it was so cute seeing their reaction, they both got a kick out of the furry sheepskins draped over their desk chairs! designing for kids is such a joy, the look on their faces is priceless.
until next time, design swell. live well.
i'm excited to share the install of the hertzig's modern family room! we had some delays with fabric, then i waited until after the holidays to photograph, but better late than never! if you remember, i had done two options for the space, you can read about that here. so which one did she choose? take a look at the room before, and see where we ended up...
before, the room was dark and completely overwhelmed by a massive sectional. the goal was to lighten and brighten, utilize another sectional, and include other types of seating.
we lightened the walls using my go-to neutral 'repose gray' by sherwin williams. by using a smaller sectional, i was able to use a pair of chairs to open up the flow while completing the seating arrangement. i must say, i'm crazy about the chairs. i chose to do a contrast welt and WOW do these look good!
we kept the existing coffee table, but replaced everything else. i chose a funky sculpture sitting on a textured tray as the centerpiece. i love how the swirl pattern of the rug is visible through the glass top table.
i was excited to use two of my favorite lulu dk fabrics on this project. not many people will go the bird route, but i think they are chic and modern.
a few more details...
i love how the room turned out! of course, my favorite color is green, so that shouldn't surprise anyone. the family room completes the first floor of the hertzig's home. catch up on the foyer, dining room and office. i love working with kerri and i hope the hertzig's enjoy their home for years to come!
the playroom reveal is coming up next, so stay tuned!
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
