Before and after: A fresh new look....



This was a really fun makeover! It makes my day when I leave my clients home and they are extremely happy with the end result. Have I told you how much I love designing? It is always on the brain!

We were working with a small budget so the goal was to keep things simplistic, light, and collected. I think a room can be just as cohesive and stylish when designed with minimal accessories, furniture, artwork etc... than combining a room filled with all of the above



BEFORES






AFTERS

I love to mix materials and textures to give a room depth. The texture on the mirror adds just the right amount of interest to be the focal point of the room.


I added twigs and placed them in a vibrant vase on top of a bar cage side table to bring a bit of the outdoors in. A few decorative pillows can sometimes be the answer to adding pattern and color to a space.

My client had the sofa and chairs with the long lean lines and minimal cushioning. I wanted to maximize the minimalist look by keeping things simple and clean. My client went hard at work by painting all of oak trim in a pure white and she also re-painted all of the walls in this really pretty grey color from Sherman Williams called "amazing grey". The carpet was replaced with the gorgeous dark flooring. What a huge impact new paint and flooring made!

I wanted to add visual interest to the room by using a rug with subtle texture and color to anchor the coffee table and tie together the colors used through out the room.


Of course I couldn't help but hang the infamous Einstein picture on the wall.


We were able to hang her cute family pictures on this wall that was the perfect space.

I love decorating with books! I purchased colorful books from the thrift store to add height to the pretty, little accent table.. another inexpensive way to display decor.


My client is having a baby in March and she has started to decorate the nursery. She has done such a great job, I had to snap a few photos. The wallpaper is to die for it is darling and she also made the cute pictures on the wall. Very impressive!

Ashlie was so great to work with, she has such a fun style!
