New Project Introduction #projectwalden

I want to intoduce you to my latest project that will be lovingly referred to as 

My client recently moved from a very large custom home that she poured her entire heart & soul into & is now in a much smaller townhouse. My challenge is to turn her townhouse into a home. All of the major renovations have been completed, so I'm focusing all my efforts on the furniture, art & accessories & a bit of wallpaper. Today I'm going to show you the living / dining space.

Here are the before images.

My client loves wood, stone & metal so I am rolling with that. 
She is also not a fan of too much fabric, so I am focusing on using more leather vs. fabric.
The desk, dining table, 4 cane back chairs & tall wood framed mirror are staying.

Here is my proposed design plan for the living room area.

The first pieces I found were these exposed metal framed wing chairs from Black Rooster & the leather Restoration Hardware sofa with chaise. I loved the whimsy of the chain lamps & who can resist the Plantar chair with stump side table. I pulled colours from the Group of Seven painting for the pillows, but these can be easily switched out for any of the other gorgeous hues in this piece of classic Canadain art.

And this is the dining room space.

I kept the clients antique dining table & paired it with a custom leather upholstered leather dining bench & a painting by Emily Jeffords. They already have 4 cane back chairs that I would love to see the seats upholstered in the same leather as the sofa. As for the lighting I couldn't decide, between this beaded one & the lantern.

That's it for today - next time I'll share the master & foyer!
