Before and After Villanova Residence

Villanova Residence

Before and After

Here is a project that was finished awhile ago but we just got around to photographing. 

I absolutely adore working with this family and I'm so appreciative that they allowed me this opportunity and they trusted my vision!

The first room I helped transform was their cozy family room den

Here is the BEFORE

AFTER

Family Den

A study in neutrals...

Beautiful new built-ins were added to give height and dimension and architectural interest to the room. We also added brass library sconces from Visual Comfort and roman shades with simple greek key trim.

I love the warmth of the worn leather sofa from Restoration Hardware and the coolness of the dark gray walls. It's truly one of my favorite combinations.

We chose chelsea gray walls paired with lots of white for high contrast and to add depth and light to the space.

We also mixed metals and textures in styling the bookshelves... brass, mercury glass, lacquer, driftwood and creamy white objects.

It's all in the details...

We added a pair of mirrors flanking the bar area to make the space feel larger and reflect light from the large picture window.

The bar cabinetry was painted high-gloss white and the hardware was upgraded to a brass faucet and marble counter tops and back splash were added.

did u spy camera? need to photoshop these pics ha!

Loved keeping this space neutral. I think most people like my colorful designs but I do love designing neutral spaces too!

Moving right along ...scenes from  the "before" Dining Room 

Dining Room NOW! WOW!

We kept the window treatments and most of my client's beautiful furniture so we jazzed up the space with green grass cloth from Phillip Jeffries, new host chairs with pillow fabric from Aerin Lauder's line for Lee Jofa  and colorful modern art. The grasscloth has now become the star of the show!!

We also upgraded the lighting with classic yet modern fixtures from Visual Comfort and leopard lamps from Dana Gibson.

And let's not forget this lovely little powder with Scalamandre and a striped roman...

Things I'm all about this week...


Linda over at Calling it Home found an Etsy shop who sells floor plans of famous TV shows. How fun would this be framed  in your closet?

Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment


Even the coolest designers make mistakes. Check out Emily Henderson's mistake room here. You would never know it by  looking at the finished space below!




Now here's something I can really get into ... the "no makeup" makeup look. You can watch the how to video from Maskcara here. LOVE this.

 
Maybe you can tear your girls away from their rainbow loom for a bit to make this?
