I have begun working with a very nice older couple who are moving from their home of 48 years into a condo. We are working with what they have - meaning there will be very little new purchases. A few key items will be re upholstered, the addition of decorative pillows & window covering will be put to good use in achieving an updated feeling to all of their existing pieces. I came up with 4 different furniture layout plans, here's the one they chose.
Here's the scheme for the living room.
I am having to work with the colours dark blue & a creamy golden shade. There are 2 existing swivel chairs in a dark blue with golden dots. The dining room chairs seats are covered in a dark blue & golden large lattice pattern, a navy blue tone on tone berger chair & the Mr.'s light caramel coloured leather lazy boy - which I was told MUST stay!
The main piece in the room is going to be their sectional sofa which will be reupholstered in a beautiful textured warm neutral shade (the background fabric above). The floral, stripe & silk buffalo check fabric shown above will all be used as pillows on the various furniture pieces to add some personality & visual interest.
The blue & cream silk will be used on the windows - I pushing for simple drapery panels but the lady of the house is hoping for a valance. We'll see who wins this one!
In the master bedroom we are simply going to reupholster an existing chair & ottoman with a lovely & soft textured shade of butter, paint the walls as well as add new window coverings & a few pillows with this great floral fabric.
I still have to finalize the kitchen & I will be sure to show you that later this week. All going well we are simply going to paint the walls, add a window treatment, change the old laminate counter to a quartz product, undated the back splash, add an under mounted sink & faucet. That being said we are leaning towards this fabric for the kitchen.
If you know me or are a regular follower over her at TPZ then you know this is not my usual style but I do like a challenge & more importantly I want to make my client happy so if this is what they want this is what they shall receive!
Now onto something that is most definitely my style.
I receive my new cards & stationary earlier this week for the super awesome Pam from Pixelimpress.
I'm dying over the marble on the inside - they are my colours & as soon as I saw it I was like "I gotta have that!"
I also received my fabric labels from Ikaprint, also with my logo that will be used on any of my hand painted fabric & custom drapery. Thank you to for making these happen.
Have a wonderful Monday friends.
