a few weeks ago I finally wrapped up phase 1 of the Lee's new home in Georgia. this install is a totally different look than what you would normally see on our website, but hey, it shows that we are a well rounded design studio and we can tackle any client's style or tastes! so bring 'em on!
my client Kelli Lee contacted me back in the summer to let me know their family was packing up and moving to Alpharetta for a promotion that hubby Mike accepted. you can read more about the initial designs here. Kelli was already overwhelmed with the square footage they gained in the new house and was desperate for my help. I trucked it down one weekend with Zach in tow and we went to check it out.
after a few meetings, many emails & phone calls, all of my designs were approved and I started ordering everything.. working long distance is not that difficult however it takes a lot of trust and communication. we opted for all custom upholstered pieces and that took a little longer than expected but it was worth the wait! my guy is good!!
I took my first load of goodies down a couple of months ago and everything was starting to come together. during this last trip, I took Ashley down with me to stylize the rooms with accessories and to capture our photographs. I kept the family's traditional style throughout the foyer, living & keeping room and added my own modern twists throughout. phase 1 turned out really beautiful and I am looking forward to helping the family with future phases!
design swell. live well.
i just finished the install on my second project with the carrs.
a dark, colorless den off their kitchen that was in major need of some TLC.
the first thing to do was to paint the walls a pale, warm gray to lighten up the space. there are two wall sconces along the adjacent kitchen wall, but no overhead.
the room has an existing wood stove fireplace that set the rustic tone.
knowing they like orange, i immediately wanted to use this gorgeous LuluDK fabric.
i love the branchy, organic nature of it and the colors were spot on.
pair these branches with a couple of tree side tables, love it!
to dress the windows, we did a combination of drapes and roman shades.
yes, you can mix the type of window treatments in the same room, as long as they are the same fabric! the panels have an accent band of green, while the shades get a band of pale green greek key trim.
to ground the room, and bring in more orange, we used this graphic rug.
i'm crazy for this pattern!
and lastly, to bring in some polish, this stunning honeycomb lamp in fern green.
before we see the install pics, let's take another look at the design board...
i LOVE how the room turned out! even my installer made a comment of how a few changes can really make a huge difference; i couldn't agree more.
design is a way of life.
