"Client Project Reveal: Cool & Fresh Living/Dining!"

It's always a pleasure when I'm able to reveal a new project to you guys, and I'm particularly excited about this one.  I'll be honest and say that this project had me more nervous than any I've worked on so far.  I'm not sure why really, but I just wasn't quite sure that it would come together like I imagined.  Thankfully, my doubts were unfounded and the project turned out great! 
The client recently relocated to a new home in the Charlotte area and was looking to basically start from scratch utilizing some of her existing pieces.  Here's a glimpse at the true before pictures featured on the real estate listing...
Doesn't exactly scream modern does it?  So, we set out to update the space with a new color scheme including cool and fresh wall colors and modern textiles.  Here's where it all began....
With a plan in place, my team and I worked to pull together two modern, family-friendly yet formal spaces designed for piano and cello practices, visiting with friends and enjoying family dinners. 
And here it is...
The client had some fabulous art work, that we used as a jumping off point for the color scheme and decor.   It was actually the first time I've designed a project around fine art and I have to say, it really gives the space a more personalized feel. 
As a courtesy to my clients, I don't typically share source information for their projects, but I was pretty excited to be able to incorporate two special pieces.

First, the Dunes and Duchess candelabra. While in LA at the 2013 Design Blogger's Conference, I meet the infamous stylist and writer, Stacy "Style" Kunstel. Stacy and her partner, photographer Michael Partenio, produce a fabulous line of hand-finished wood products for the home. It was REALLY special to be able to use one of their pieces.

Second, I stumbled upon this awesome and HUGE wall shelf by Cooper Classics. I really wanted something unique for the space above the built-in. I debated forever on whether this piece would work, and finally decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did. I think it totally works and adds a wonderful natural element to the space.  I learning to go with my gut; it's typically right.
I don't think I could be any happier with the way things turned out.  I learn more and more with each project and install and it's a sheer joy to get to do what I love to do.  The journey continues.....
Have a fabulous weekend y'all!

Cheryl everything looks beautiful! I have to ask about the art over the two chairs. I particularly like an artist "Twin" which is actually two twin brothers and this looks like it could be one of their pieces. Stunning! xo

your clients 2 spaces are very nice and they feel mush warmer and modern with the new colors! & yes, I agree it's great when you start with great art and then you were able to work from those colors :-)
