A young family needs a classic space to entertain and an update to a traditional home.

elegant sophistication

The original Dining Room was painted with two tone evergreen stripes with matching drapes and valances and included a fussy crystal chandelier not to the liking of the homeowner. The room needed updating to create a nice flow from the new Living Room, but the homeowners wanted to keep their Spanish Style dining table and chairs from their previous home. Cool aqua blue walls and new Roman shades now coordinate with the silver and purple in the Living Room creating a new calm and easy space. Updating the chandelier by removing much of the extra crystals and adding charcoal linen shades cuts down on its formality. This small change made such an impact that the homeowner thought it was a completely new chandelier! Covering the dark wood table with a grey linen table cloth helps it blend into the new space better. Artwork in both the Living and Dining Rooms were DIY to save money and to coordinate with the new color palettes. The painted panels on either side of the front window in the Living Room were actually created by the children and framed in silver leaf frames. They turned out beautiful and are great conversation starters!

Old Spaces, New look

In the Master Bedroom the homeowners needed to replace the dated yellow and blue toile window treatments and large built in, and had never purchased proper furniture for their bedroom. The bedroom now boasts a fun and casual paisley linen print with a fresh palette of pink, moss green and chocolate brown. Transitional wood end tables and matching wood and upholstered bed ground the space, and pink and green toned artwork brings colors to the walls while keeping the space calm and tranquil.
