i've been working with client amy and her husband scott to update their plaza midwood home. we're eventually tackling the entire house, but this post is dedicated to the first floor.
a brief overview of my client's wish list...
the foyer needs a runner on the stairs and a new paint color or wallpaper.
their living room is almost complete, it just needs the finishing touches. some type of wall decor over the sofa, some window treatments, new paint colors, some art over the fireplace, and eventually a new granite counter for their built-in bar.
the dining room is getting a window treatment, accent pillows, a mirror over the buffet, some lamps, new paint colors, and a new custom china cabinet.
the front room has no function at this time, so anything goes! it's going to become a lounge for amy. it's getting new paint colors, a new overhead fixture, a window treatment, and new furniture.
the powder room needs a mirror and a new paint color or wallpaper.
the kitchen needs granite countertops, a new backsplash, new paint colors or wallpaper and window treatments.
so, where did i start? i chose the dining room as the impetus for the rest of the first floor. knowing my clients love orange, i quickly chose a fabric that would bring life and light to the dimly lit space. this iconic schumacher fabric contains several shades of orange and coral and is the perfect jumping off point that i can use to build my palette for the other rooms of the house.
i LOVE that amy isn't afraid of color, or wallpaper for that matter!
this amazing chandelier is going in the front room across from the dining room.
amy has claimed this front living space as her "girly" room and it's going to be fab!
i'm crazy about this wallpaper, and turns out, so is my client! i have the black and white version in my own home, but you guessed it, we're going orange for these two.
now that you've seen the major 'orange' elements, take a look at what i've got planned for this house...
we're working in phases, but the individual transformations will be spectacular!
stay tuned for install pics, i'm really looking forward to sharing!
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
