A New Great Room {Client Work}

Surprise, surprise...

I'm back, so soon, sharing the before and after of a recently completed great room for a repeat client (my favorite kind).


This was a top to bottom makeover including new wall color, layout, floor coverings, furniture, etc.

I do a lot of work that includes client's existing furniture, which I enjoy, but having the opportunity to create an entirely new space is always a favorite because the transformation is so clear.


We choose a tight color palette, mostly shades of grey with mint/seafoam accent, for this project - pulling inspiration from the architecture of the home and some existing kitchen furnishings to tie the spaces together.


Texture and pattern were key players in this project. Area rug, cushions, throw blankets and eyelash poufs all in similar tones, but varying patterns and textures keep the space interesting while maintaining the minimal palette.


Small details like the nailhead trim speak to the lighting fixtures in the kitchen to help coordinate the two spaces.


Funnily enough, one of the first projects I completed for this client was an update to the mantel and help with art placement (then we moved onto the master bedroom, which you can read about here). I choose the urns for her mantel not knowing that they would be a major influence on the great room over a year later. 


No good reveal post would be complete without a good before shot to remind us where we started . Go ahead and feast you're eyes on this image - camera phone, bad lighting and all.  


Yes, we've come along way and the transformation couldn't be more clear. Clean and crisp, but still cozy - one of my favorite combinations. 

Big thank you to the Valentine Family for trusting me (again) to make this happen - I hope you love it as much as I do!

More to come..
