The day has come to reveal my living room design from the big install last week. This has been a project I have been working on for about 2 months....so seeing it come together was so satisfying to this "get it done, and get it done NOW kind of girl!" But it was well worth the wait. When my client opened the door and said " SHUT UP, this is NOT my house!" It was such an HGTV moment:) I think I have had a permagrin on my face for a week:)
I was tasked with creating a plan that included the existing sofa, rug, and coffee table. I swapped one chair in another room with the leather chair. This 1920's home had recently been renovated, so the walls had already been painted Sherwin Williams Sedate Gray....which casts green in this room. They wanted a Cozy, Neo-Traditional room, with a collected feel and a sense of history. So here is the end result.
Mantadia Rug from Anthropologie for the dining room.. but it was crewel and would have been destroyed in 2 seconds flat...so not wanting to disappoint, this little bench was a surprise for her. I ordered a 2X3 and had the bench covered. Just the pop of color the room needed!
|A view of the sitting area with the drapes. I love how it creates a light and airy stripe..|
without the boldness that a a true stripe sometimes has. And of course the Allan Campbell Potalla Pillows.
|Just another view. You can see that the Bookcase picks up the same color in the pillow. |
And a view of the "Collected Wall".
|Isn't the artwork fantastic??? Tracey Jefferies is a talent.|
One of the things the homeowners wanted was to integrate regional artists into the design. I snapped up this piece when I was a Scott Antique Market from the artist Tracy Jefferies from Arcing Sky Gallery in Athens. She shows at Scott Antique Market every month. The colors are perfect, and it is just on the edge of an abstract, and can be translated loosely into a landscape. I love it! Another artist used in the design was a local artist, Alicia Leeke. I used two of her prints on the same collected wall. You must check out her work. Beautiful colors.
|Are you drooling over the mirror? So awesome, right?|
The husband grew up in Palm Beach and it is my little nod to his history.
(the dining room is next...it is pretty much finished, I just haven't taken photos yet.)
