Install of the Day !

Hi There !

Getting your dining room party ready in September and you won't be stressing in November.  Better yet, we won't be stressing !  We tend to get crazy busy in the fall with dining rooms especially, so when clients come to us in the late summer we are thrilled.  We have time to receive all the elements without the crazy last minute install.  John and Olga Karagounis did just that and Maggie did a beautiful job designing their front space and coordinating it with a custom foyer runner and new great room.  She also created a plan for the master bedroom and their new baby daughter's room, all in the works as well.  Just installed the other day and shot by Mekenzie I am in love with the room's richness and elegance with the eclectic mix of modern and traditional.  Party ready.

Take a look at the design she planned . . .

At our original meeting we noticed their dining room table in the garage.  John was planning to paint it black.  Good idea.  We did, however, snap it up and had it professionally sprayed a black lacquer. 

Maggie worked with shades of navy in this space.  Grass cloth, ombre upholstered head chairs, new side chairs in black and lots of gold touches.

The finished product is stunning.

Brass sconces mixed with antique white, black and a lucite bar cart.  Modern, abstract art gives the walls even more pop.

Love the look from the front door as you walk it, it sets the tone.

Moving to the kitchen and great room, she added another paper.  This is one of our favorites.  We have used it in the blue/grey color way and black/grey (in my own foyer.. yummy).  In this space we chose the gold and off white.  Just on one wall it adds major visual impact.

The great room is next on the books.  Large cabinets flanking the fireplace, a cluster of big lighting hanging from the vaulted ceiling and a new swivel chair with contrast fabric on the back.

A large sectional was newly re-upholstered and re-delivered. 

The new baby girl is also getting a few tweaks.  Art, a rug, lighting.  Just some things to pull it together.

And lastly, isn't it always . .  the master bedroom !  The design compliments all our colors downstairs.  Maggie picked some beautiful elements - lacquered side chests, paper and a fab rug.

The window area with a new chaise, lighting and side table.

Loving all the new pieces and beautiful photos.  Great job Maggie !

Wonderful note from our client !  Thanks so much....

Nearly a year ago, after seeing Lucy &Co.'s design work in multiple magazines, as well as in a family members home, I turned to them looking for a funky bookshelf for our babies bedroom. I walked in the showroom and met Maggie and briefly explained to her what we were looking for. I also explained that we had just built a new home and how a design plan surely would be nice too! Maggie then began picking our brain, mind you we were extremely picky and some what quite knowledgeable on what we liked and disliked and gung-ho on what we wanted. She later arranged a meeting and told us she had  confidently finished designing our boards. As she went through them sharing what she had come up with, we were blown away and amazed by her work. We were wow-factored to the point that we could not believe how spot-on good she was, and we of course loved every single thing Maggie came up with, instantly saying, "make this magic come to life, Maggie"!! 
And she did, alright: From unique grasscloth walls, original art paintings, over the top fabrics and window treatments, fun horn sconces, multiple tiered artisan geometric hanging lights, breathtaking quality furniture pieces, large cozy rugs, coffee and side tables making a truly elegant and functional  living room, and not to leave out one of my fav amazing adorable baby girls bedroom!!! And...more and more and more to come!!
Being an entrepreneur myself, I was blown away on Lucy &Co.'s professionalism, work ethics and top notch expertise, along with hands down the highest level of quality design and most importantly the one on one personal relationship you need and want with your designer. Maggie, is out of this world amazing at what she does, exceeding our expectations in every way. Her great personality is the best to work with, filled with confidence, talent, understanding design and style on a highly professional level, which is exactly what we were looking for. 

Maggie, and let's not leave the legendary mastermind Beth Kiem out, good work once again ladies and we thank you dearly!!
