if you remember, i've been working with clients amy and scott on multiple projects in their plaza midwood home. if you missed my original post, you can read it here. to date, we've tackled the foyer, powder room, dining room, front room, living room and some items in their kitchen.
everything started with a paint palette for the entire house. take a look at my benjamin moore selections...
1. athena #858 - dining room walls
2. catalina blue #703 - dining room ceiling
3. alaskan husky #1479 - living room walls
4. saber gray #1482 - living room accent
5. mineral alloy #1622 - kitchen walls
6. golden delicious #390 - kitchen ceiling
7. athena #858 - front room
8. sweet pear #389 - front room ceiling
first up, the foyer. we chose a combination of wallpaper and paint. the paint was used in the stairwell and continues to the upstairs landing. i pulled out the pale citrus color in the wallpaper for the walls, using benjamin moore's 'cypress grove' #388. using a dark charcoal rug for the runner grounds all the lightness on the walls.
the dining room and front room flank the foyer, so i kept the colors continuous while still adding personality to each space. the front room is still in process, so for now, take a look at the dining room...
the living room received a new paint scheme, bamboo shades, lamps and a grouping of mirrors over the sofa. i love how this room turned out.
the kitchen received new paint and i found the absolute perfect fabric to recover the existing bar stools. it has every color from our paint palette and ties the main floor together.
and lastly, the powder room. a fun wallpaper and amazing mirror complete the space. i actually found this antique mirror at one of my favorite local shops. the height wasn't substantial enough, so my carpenter replicated it to a tee! i'm still blown away by it.
and that's phase one for amy and scott. these projects are proof that adding small details can really transform a space. don't hesitate to contact a designer, even if you think your scope of work is too small. a good designer will always be willing to help!
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
