I recently had the pleasure of helping a sweet family of 5, the Hendrix, transition homes here in Charlotte. We were tasked with paint and lighting selections, furniture layout and tackling their biggest sticking point, the stone accent wall in the foyer. The wall isn't coming down anytime soon, so how do we work with it…
Contrast is the name of the game. To counteract the rugged, natural wall we upped the femininity and glamour to provide balance. A simple curvy, ladylike demilune table beneath an antiqued mirror flanked by a pair of super useful slipcovered chairs provide the basis. A couple of throw pillows in her existing neutral and blue scheme, and an orchid (my favorite!) for the finishing touch.
Here's what our clients had to say about the whole experience:
After four months of diligently searching, my husband and I finally found THE house for our family of five. We were (are) elated! Elated AND a bit overwhelmed with multiple cosmetic changes of the home - changes and updates that needed to be tackled
sooner versus later (read: procrastinated out of fear of messing up). These seemingly separate projects needed to be tied together and planned out by a trusted professional...I have learned in the past that mistakes actually cost me more than asking for help and investing in expertise.Well, mistakes and struggle be gone---
In steps Brass Pineapple Interiors and Liz Flinn, out steps my feelings of being insanely overwhelmed with interior and exterior paint colors, furniture placement and over-all flow of our new home. Can you hear the exhale and relaxation in my words?
Let me just say that working with Brass Pineapple Interiors resulted in a seamless, organized, stress-free, beautifully designed project. The personal attention and focus on detail cannot be replicated by another designer. We are beyond pleased and will absolutely be working with Liz and Brass Pineapple Interiors again!
We feel so lucky to be helping others while we do what we love. And, of course, we'd love to help you, too - contact us to get started. Now taking reservations for May.
Our girls have Spring break next week, so we'll be taking time away from the computer, to spend quality family time. See you next Monday.
until next time,
