It’s always so much fun to see a design literally come to life and to then share it with you all. Today I’m revealing my most recent project and probably one of my favorites to date. I always say that, don’t I?
This was a makeover with a quick turnaround. Luckily the clients gave me a great start with superb wall colors; Sherwin Williams Moody Blue and Balanced Beige.
I’m filing this awesome neutral gray beige in my great paint color archives.
We started with a space that wasn’t exactly in need of an update, it actually just needed to be pulled together. It never ceases to amaze me how impactful things like drapes, a good rug, color pillows and finishing touches can be. If you have any doubt about that fact, you won’t after this.
The family was looking for a more modern, yet kid friendly space and after seeing their paint colors, I immediately knew what direction we should go. I find that when looking to achieve a clean and modern look, (in most cases) it helps to limit the color scheme to include only two or three colors (with variations). I knew a rich golden rod would strike just the right tone against the Moody Blue. And boy was it “moody”. While I love the color, it was a difficult blue to work with. It could read either blue or green depending on what was paired with it. In the end, we made it work.
We also spruced up the attached dining area and kitchen. A bold Moroccan trellis print on the drapery and a simple gallery wall with black and white family photos finish off the adjoining space.
I tackled another stencil project in the kitchen. Apparently I'm a glutton for punishment. The trellis print was repeated here to create the look of a backsplash. I’ll talk more about the specifics on that a little later.Such a fun project for a fun young family.
