"New Year, New Projects"

A new year means new design projects and let's just say 2017 has started off with a bang! I'm currently in the midst of a pretty dramatic makeover for a super sweet family.  Their home's main floor was in need of a little upgrade including new flooring, paint, lighting and d├ęcor. 

After getting a feel for the client's style and hearing a brief mention of the color coral, I ran into this amazing stool and pillow while home for Thanksgiving.  And when you just happen to find an ottoman/pillow from Century Furniture covered in Duralee's Tilton Fenwick's fabric, deeply discounted from its retail price you BUY IT and ship it home.

From that little spur of the moment purchase came an entire design plan.  I just love how that happens.  : )   I also decided to take some of that design knowledge from school and pulled together a design board to present to the client. 

Here's a closer look at the plan.

The family was looking to brighten things up a bit.  Once you see the before photos, you'll understand why.  The carpet was in need of some attention and we ultimately decided to ditch it altogether and opted for expresso stained (at the request of the Mr.) hardwoods.  To balance out the dark floors we went with a light gray wall color from Sherwin Williams and we are keeping the furnishing pretty neutral and light as well.
 This one is already coming together.  You know it's not really a Dwell by Cheryl Interiors project without some furniture transformations or creations and this time we've got both! I can't wait until the install.

 Here's a closer look at the room's space plan.  It's not a large space but it's going to be super inviting when we're done with it. The family really loves hanging out at home and I'm on a mission to give them a space they're never going to want to leave.

This beaded chandelier is making a sweet repeat appearance in this project.

You may recall it from another one a while back ago.  The client really loved the natural vibe it will bring to the space and I have to agree. It's going to be great!  This fixture even casts a cool shadow from the light shining around the beads. 

While I'd proposed a jute rug, the question of comfort was raised.  While I can attest to the fact that there are lots of jute rugs that are soft underfoot, I know that comfort is really important to this family so I veered from the plan and went with this bordered wool option.  I've actually owned it before and KNOW it's super comfortable.

So there you have it!  We're full steam ahead on this one and should be wrapping this up in about four weeks.  Get the behind the scenes details on this and other projects by following me on social media. 

Until next time....
