We've got so many great projects, it's hard to choose what to share! This week we decided it was time to debut this amazing bathroom and laundry. The space turned out beautifully and is definitely not your typical bathroom/laundry combo. It is roomy and bright, and it actually makes doing laundry feel like less of a chore.
We have so many amazing, lovely clients, and we really do enjoy working with them all! We had the pleasure of working with this sweet family and doing some interior design updates throughout their beautiful home. Today we thought we'd share some pics of their family room and front entry. Everything turned out so pretty and it all just feels so fresh and new!
All this time we've been sharing updates on the inside of our fun French Revival project, but there's a lot going on outside the house too! The backyard is also going to be absolutely amazing and is really starting to take shape as of late. Today we decided it was finally time to share a few of our favorite details behind the house!
Whether you are looking for a statement piece in your living room or somewhere comfortable to just relax and read a book, an accent chair is often the perfect solution.
A luxurious armchair is so versatile and adds both style and function to any space—and choosing the right chair for you doesn't have to be hard! We've got a few tips on what to look for to make things easy on you. Check them out:
1. Take the size of your space into consideration. If you are working in a small area, look for something with a more slim design. If you have all the room in the world, find a chair that is plump and oversized. Either way, make sure you have enough room to move around the chair and any other furniture nearby.
2. An accent chair should be just that. When it comes to the material of the chair, choose something that contrasts with your sofa. You want the piece to stand out, not blend in. A different pattern or texture will add an element of interest to your space. And don't forget about the pieces you have in addition to your sofa. Visualizing how it all looks with your coffee table, rug, and artwork is a must.
3. Try to create a space that is comfortable and inviting. Instead of just putting a chair in that empty corner, add a side table and a beautiful floor or table lamp. Take it one step further and add some colorful pillows and a comfy throw.
4. Finally, keep comfort in mind. An accent chair should be enjoyed! Since you aren't trying to seat a crowd, pick a chair you would love to curl up and read a book in or that you can just sink into and spend a lazy afternoon daydreaming.
Bathroom fixtures have started to arrive and, while we thought they were beautiful when we were helping our amazing clients pick them out, we have certainly fallen in love with them all over again now that we get to see them in person!
Each bathtub is unique, as you will quickly see, and we are just so happy with how everything is coming together. We hope you'll forgive the "yellowish" tone to these pictures, as the windows are all covered with paper now. Soon the paper will be removed and we will share these beautiful, bright spaces again. So just enjoy for now and let us know what bathtub is your very favorite!
At this point, we hope you know we have quite the affinity for accessories. And since we love them so much, that's exactly what we'd like to focus on for today!
We are fortunate enough to be able to work on a wide array of projects both big and small. No matter what size job we are working on, researching to find the perfect furniture, paint, flooring, etc. that we know our clients will love certainly drives us. However, our vision for any finished project ALWAYS includes accessories.
Accessories are what make a space feel complete. They are what brings life to every room! Accessories can add color, texture, and warmth while being totally useful or simply decorative. The best part is that you really get to know a person through their choice of accessories!
Now, we've talked about using accessories before and have shared some fun tips in previous posts when it comes to picking out your own. Today, we just wanted to share a few pictures from a recent photo shoot with one of our amazing clients to show you how placing just a few fun pieces totally transforms your space!
There are so many exciting and fun details that we want to share about our French Revival Project! Everything seems to be moving at a much faster pace these days, and it's getting harder to keep up with every new little thing. But we promise we are doing our best to document all that we can and will work to keep you updated to the very end!
This week we decided it was time to share a few pictures of the basement and the amazing stairs that you go down to get there. The stairs will be absolutely gorgeous, as will the basement, and we just can't wait to see it all complete!
Once through the front entry, you will come to this beautiful staircase that leads down to the basement. And we guarantee the space is going to be AMAZING!
Notice all the wires on the right side of the stairs? The stairs will have lighting going up/down, and it was a definite must for our clients. We agree that it is a detail everyone should enjoy as it creates a nice ambiance and is a safety feature as well!
Another look at the stairs and their magnificent "curves." We just love a good rounded stair.
This special space is for the all the cute kids that will be frequenting this beautiful home. It was important for our wonderful clients to have a space even the littles would enjoy.
At the bottom of the stairs you'll find the extra-large family room and this fun open theater and stage. When complete this spot will have theater seating, columns, and all sorts of other fun goodies.
Opposite the theater is the large open family/game/sports room area that will provide lots of entertainment for every age. Right now the French oak floors are covered for protection! At the end of the room are some beautiful windows and doors that goes out to a rock wall and garden that leads to the back yard and pool.
Have you started pulling out all of your patio furniture? We can't believe it's that time of year, but summer is definitely here! We've been doing lots of research when it comes to patios and have saved some of our favorite designs along the way. The look we are loving this year: black and white. Everything about a black and white patio feels crisp, clean, and totally classic. Take a look at some of our favorites:
We love the simplicity of this space with its natural log side table and darling black and white pillows. Everything about this patio feels beautiful and serene.
While there's no black in sight, we love the white! One of our favorite combinations for just about any space includes woods with whites. It always makes a space feel fresh and crisp!
This sweet spot combines black, white, and wood. It is beautiful and inviting, and the greenery and bright pink flowers just add another fun element of interest.
This outdoor patio is the perfect example of cozy and intimate. The furniture and throw pillows are simple and the black and white stripe rug pulls it all together. Not to mention, the flowers and greenery are just breathtaking!
We love how fun and playful this painted checkerboard patio turned out. The simple black furniture paired with pops of red make this spot the perfect place to spend summer evenings.
Another beautiful and cozy spot that features black and white as well as hints of gray and blue. It's a lovely combination that is totally timeless. We could relax here all night!
There are so many fun things to do with your patio space. We couldn't decide on a favorite, can you?
