Hey you guys! It’s almost Thanksgiving! I know that I should be posting about beautiful holiday tables, but I’m just not there yet! I’ll let you know about my thoughts on Thanksgiving next week! :)
In the meantime, this is been such a busy and wonderful year, and in the few spare moments that I have, I like to revisit client projects and take photographs and let you know about the process!
This was a small project for a repeat client that we completed in June …(we’ve done her living room and dining room — and no, I haven’t photographed those yet either!) . But I wanted to share this, because we did just a few things to update her family room, and it made some dramatic differences! You may be able to do the same before the holidays, if you are expecting guests and want to make your living spaces look fabulous!
While I didn’t take a ton of before pics — this is the one that shows the art, the sofa and a bit of the pillows ‘before’…… just to give you a glimpse….
My client had commissioned the art from a local artist, and wanted to “tie it in” to the living space. So, here’s what we did … and here are the tips that I recommend!
Frame your Art Properly
While I loved the art that my client had commissioned, I felt that the raw edge of the canvas felt too casual. We decided to frame it in a floating, metallic frame, that not only made the art look amazing…it elevated the look of the room!
2. Pillows can Make A Room
I tend to go for neutral (timeless!) upholstered furniture with pops of color with pillows! Pillows can change the look of your room in an instant! We sourced these gorgeous, designer fabric pillows from Arianna Belle — and coordinated the colors to complement the art!
3. Change your Area Rug
While I don’t have a pic of the rug ‘before’, my client had a neutral sisal rug that we replaced with this tonal blue rug that added depth to the room. Rugs are kind of like pillows — they can make a huge difference!
4. Style your Coffee Table
Change up what you have going on, on your coffee table. Add some cool looking jars, fresh flowers in a unique vase and a colorful coffee table book!
And there you have it!
