"Leveled Up Living"



There comes a time when you realize it's time to level up and that include your home.  That was exactly the case with my clients.  They'd recently moved to a larger home and were looking to create a space that was more indicative of their style and frankly more...elevated. 

We'd actually worked together in the past on their bedroom and I was very familiar with their aesthetic.  They tend to be drawn to earthtones and while the wife likes a bit of a natural, global feel, the husband prefers a bit of a more polished look.  We set out to give them both.  Using oranges, teal and touches of warm neutrals, we created a plan for their formal dining, living room and eat-in kitchen area.  

The dining room had furnishings but otherwise was a blank slate.  We decided to go bold here with a York Wallcoverings dragon wallpaper.  I'm always amazed by what wallpaper can do.



We're actually going to be switching out the dining table soon, but it's still a pretty dramatic change.  In the living room, we needed to upgrade the furniture and give the entire space a more elevated feel while remaining family-friendly. 



The space is a bit awkward in that it's a long and narrow space.  We addressed this by creating a couple of seating areas and a walkway behind the sofa. 




So much warmer and cozier!  Revolution Performance fabrics were used on the pair of chairs and the sofa and I'm obsessed with these custom swivel chairs by Sylvester Alexander furniture, the manufacturer of the Belle by Cheryl Luckett collection. 







 We didn't want to overlook the entry. So we created a little landing in the small nook, which became the perfect place to drop keys, display photos and get a last look as you head out the door. 


The eat-in area off the kitchen was a bit small and awkward when we arrived.  The current scale of the furniture was tiny and it needed to be a continuation of the living space we'd created.  






The large scale art, appropriately scaled furniture (BTW, the table extends to accommodate additional guests) and patterned drapes completely transform this area.  

I'm so glad my clients recognized the value of creating a home you love.  They've already remarked about the number of times they've entertained family and friends in their new space.  Hearing that makes me so happy.  After all, that's what it's all about.
