My first design job

I just finished my first real design job. In the past, I have designed my own homes and have given many people advice. This was the first time I have gone into a clients home and come up with a design plan. I did all the shopping locally and staged the home. I have scoured so many interior design blogs and home decor magazines. It's funny the things that have really stuck in my head when I was coming up with ideas. I learned a lot about scale, proportion, texture and color. It was fun to see my passion for interior design translate into a beautiful space. My client was happy with the way her home turned out, it made it all worth it!

Next, I am going to be working on a mid-century modern home. It's going to be fun, I love that style!

This family room was pretty much a blank canvas. I had so much fun pulling together pieces for this space.

Isn't this a great sofa table? I have the same one in a grey color on my "wish list".

Added a new media console.

I love this media console with the middle apothecary drawers.

Livened up this corner with a tripod lamp (my fav), a chair and framed artwork.

This chair is such a statement piece. I'm in love with it. It was hard to part with!

I wanted to add a variety of texture and color with both the accessories and furniture. The wicker ottoman accomplishes my "texture" goal in a big way! The gorgeous area rug is 8x11 and 100% wool. I was excited about this find!

I love the white painted brick.

Added a sunburst mirror. I wanted the accessories to "pop" against the white brick.

I added decor to the walls to liven up the front room. Isn't all the trimwork great! I love the dimension it adds to the room.

I found these simple white candle holders at Ikea, I like them!

Added a pretty throw and pillow to the chaise.

I moved the console table into the front room. I love this "worn" leather storage bench I found. It is so cool, it reminded me of a old leather suitcase.

I love to group together framed artwork.

Thanks Michelle for trusting me to makeover your space!

Awesome job ... It looks amazing....My first design job was in 2006, when I made some graphic goodies for a Warcraft 3 gaming clan. Yeah, I was an avid RTS gamer myself. I designed their website, some banners, clan stationery and even made a gaming video! They didn’t pay me any money but they did send me lots and lots of stuff via post, and that I consider a payment. :)
