Hey . .
Wrapping the week up - the last of 3 installs . . . back at Shari Grams ! We had a guest room to take care of just prior to the Wachovia Tournament . . . brings back memories of my dining room install last year that wrapped up I think the day before the tournament ! Shari and I are working our way through the house and I have to say, Shari is getting into design and I am pretty impressed. She has become a Houzz and Pinterest junkie and we managed to figure out her powder room, guest and bathroom renovation (as well as upcoming family room and lake house) in record time. I have gotten to know her and the house and we've been moving throughout to update colors and furnishings for a more updated look with color cohesion ! This small project was all about her guest room.
I took the colors I used in the dining room (and her existing living space) and filtered them back into the guest room. It's all about the robin's egg blue, latte and a touch of gold. Shari did a complete remodel of the guest bath using inspiration from her Houzz files and I jumped in to help with the adjoining bedroom. She needs a new bed, sides, lamps, windows, rug - well basically a complete update. Take a look at the direction I suggested.
The early stages of the design in my head included a large floor screen behind a headboard . . an idea I'll save for another project . . but I changed my mind and suggested a larger headboard going as high as I could go proportionately in a much more modern, staggered look. Shari's home has a traditional feel in general, but we have started introducing a few more transitional pieces and it's coming together beautifully.
Take a look at her new guest land-o-slumber !
We have such a nice new tie back to the formal dining room from last year. Our colors are now jiving and both rooms have a traditional feel, with a few new more modern touches !
We also tackled the Powder Room, right off the main hallway . . . stay tuned (when I get the mirror installed . . just like last year, at the 12th hour) I'll give you a full look. I recently I posted images of Phillip Jeffries new paper introductions . . and this is the space I got to use it !!! It's amazing.
Happy Weekend . . . Happy, I don't have to be anywhere, Saturday. Forgive me if I turn my phone off til Monday!
