Charming entry makeover

Hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving with friends and family:)

I had a few minutes to look back at some of the photos on my phone and thought it might be fun to share some of the projects I've been working on. I've been up to my eyeballs in full renovation projects but I've had so many fun decorating projects I worked on over the past few months.

As I was looking through my pictures one thing struck me --- every photo I took represents hundreds of details, decisions and man hours behind the scenes to achieve a specific look--no matter the size or scope of the project or room.  For every pretty picture you see remember it can take a village of people, an army of tradesman and hours of contemplating by a designer to get the room to look just right.  An effortless look does not come without lots of effort! Anyway here are a few little gems I found on my phone!

First up is a cute little entry in a beautiful old stone colonial home. Some of the older, charming homes I work on don't have over the top, cavernous foyers. But rather quaint, purposeful entries. Here is the before....

This  client has a very busy family life both working physicians with 3 small children and they wanted a fun, bright entry.   I knew it was going to be a little out of their comfort zone but I recommended a durable vinyl wallpaper (just imagining the kids running their hands along the wall as they run up and down the stairs).

Here is the after!

Fun, bright and cheery wouldn't you say? We installed a bold wallpaper and kept the stair runner as a quiet back drop to the wallcovering.

As I mentioned my team and I have  been crazy busy here but I thought I'd share a few cool pictures from some of the renovations we've  been working on...

Here's a peek of a kitchen renovation... gray and white cabinetry with brass hardware and a beautiful marble counter top happening over in Bryn Mawr.

Awesome, right? and yep....I need new sneakers!
