Freshening up…

From time to time, a client will call requesting a “face-lift”!!  The bones of the space are fine…the layout may even flow well…it is just that the furnishings need some freshening…such was the case with this space…

This family entertains often and this room serves as overflow…it is also directly off the entry.  So, highly visible and used infrequently-often!!  How is that for a combination?!!

The foundation of this room was this incredible vintage rug that was a gift from the client’s father!!  (Who obviously has impeccable taste!!)

Shortly after taking this project on, we were on a scouting trip to Chicago and came across this fabric by Schumacher…

The repeat on this piece is 48″!!!!!!  Talk about the perfect balance to the drama of the rug!!  So, from these two items the whole room was built!!!  New fabrics on new furnishings…vintage seashell prints…custom frames…updated accessories with a little history!!  (The only “construction” was the addition of an overhead fixture as the space was a little dark and we wanted to draw attention to the vaulted ceiling!!)
