Client Living Space Renovation - Phase 1

Now that the master bedroom is complete, my client wants to start tackling their overall living space. Currently, their living room is being used as their toy room and home office area. The sunroom off their kitchen is used as their main TV and living room and their formal dining room is just not used. They wanted a plan to better utilize the space they have and take back some of their living space while still in the midst of raising young children.  

My fist goal was to get the home office out of the living room. And since the dining room is underutilized for eating, I suggested they use this space as a multi-functional den/dining room.

My client already has great built-in cabinetry in their dining room.

The plan is to simply remove the middle, lower cabinets and dress the former bar as a desk area.

Similarly, use the built-in buffet as a bookcase.

A round table for easy traffic flow and a chandelier that is large enough for the table but with a slightly masculine, den feel.

I added a narrow console table in front of the window for serving when the room is used for dining. The dining table I chose for them also converts to a larger oval when the leaf is in.

 I am so excited about this first phase of my client's living space renovation! Giving this space a purpose opens up an entire new area for them to live and love.

Stay tuned for the living room and sun room plans! {Erin}

Crisp & Casual Client Bedroom REVEAL!

I posted in July about a client who had come to the all too familiar crossroads in home ownership: love it or list it? We have been working on plans for their main floor living spaces which I will share with you later this week, but in the meantime, we have given their master bedroom a crisp and casual mini makeover. Here is the design and post from July.

And here was an option for window panels I gave her. 

Here is the design translated! Her husband wasn't crazy about the starburst mirror, so we went with a colorful landscape picture framed by the wall sconces.

And as a tribute to their fury friend Louie, I found a ceramic "Louie" door stop. 

A quick look back at the before: 

Sweet Dreams! {Erin}

Lake Renovations Reveal!

For those of you who have been following my sporadic progress pics of our lake house renovation, it is finally finished! I think I said that it would take around 3 weeks in my initial post about the makeover. Well, what can I say? I was wrong! Weather, changes, etc. made it more like an eight week makeover, but who's counting?! 

The most important thing is that we are completely thrilled with the results. Take a look!

You'll have to pardon my photos - forgot my nice camera and so these are from my phone. But even bad photography can't hide what a great change has been made. Here's where we started again. 

And the end result.

I am starting a much smaller renovation this week for a client. This  chic bamboo edged dresser is getting a glam makeover with a jewel tone finish and new hardware. 

Stay tuned for the results! {Erin}
