Sometimes it's hard to get motivated this time of year - with the holidays over and several cold months still ahead of us. The great news is this is the perfect time of year to restyle your rooms. Just to give you a little inspiration, I thought I would share a project I've been working on over the last few months.
I've shared a few pictures of this project with you here earlier, but this week we worked on finishing up. And just in time since the couple is hosting an engagement party this weekend!
I have restyled almost every room in this house and it has been a ton of fun for me. But what I wanted to show you today is their family room/den. I did not take pictures of where this room began (sorry), but here is the initial "After" of the space (btw, the walls were red, so we picked this warm vanilla color to lightened up the space).
Here is a view of the opposite direction. These are all items the couple already had in their home - just moved from other rooms for a fresh look.
Once we finished the restyle, I sourced some additional items should she choose to enhance the space in the future.
So, a couple of weeks ago, my client called to tell me her husband was taking the leather chair to his office (yeah!!) and that she wanted to purchase the new pieces for the space.
So, here's the Second After . . . new chairs. The slipper chairs moved to the basement/media room; and with the large leather recliner out of the picture, we were able to select a pair of larger scale chairs to fill this space.
And this is the wall with the leather chair.
So what's new you ask? The console table (found at a consignment shop for a deal) here in town. I love that this piece visually fills this large wall while it's narrow profile keeps the path to the door clear. The chairs are from Bernhardt and are a very high quality chair for the money. Lastly, we purchased the crackle finished plates. These are a clever way to give you an entire wall of artwork without breaking the bank. All the rest - lamps, mirror, wall brackets, etc. were pulled from other areas of the home.
Notice the coffee table is different, we traded the coffee tables with the living room for a change. I think the glass top makes the space feel bigger. So, by purchasing a few key pieces, the space has been completely transformed.
Hopefully, this will encourage you to move some furniture this weekend?! Have a great one. M.
