A Sitting Room Refresh {client work}

Oh my goodness, summer snuck up on me. Well, not so much snuck up, more just happened faster than I was prepared for it to happen. Preschool ended before Memorial day, we headed out of town over the holiday weekend and I've had my little "helper" with me ever since. And, now, elementary school has come to a crashing end with the stomach flu! Today, our first official day of summer break, the kids and I are already exhausted. Remember when summer was a relaxing time? Yeah, me neither! 

Well, before the summer schedule takes over even more, I thought I'd share a recently completed client project.

This space was created for another repeat client who happens to love the beach and all it's colorful influences. In an adjoining room we used seafoam as an accent, in this room we really embraced it - complete with a new couch and rug!

Loved creating this little vignette as the first resting spot for your eye when viewing the room. 

I'm still not sure what the details are of the piece we found to act as the media cabinet. It's tall and narrow, three doors across - I think English in origin - beautiful, no matter the function.

Drapery and wall color were a big influence on how the room and design plan came together. 

Love the contrast between light and dark, new and old. 

What a treat to work in this space! As I've said before, I love mixing old with new and this space is a true testament to how this design practice can create a unique, lived in, layered look in your home. So happy with the results!

Thanks to the Cowan family for inviting me into your home and working with me to create this beautiful space. 

More to come...
