Install of the Day !

Hey There !

Busy couple of days past and coming up with Pre-Thanksgiving installs... jobs that have been in the works for a while and have been waiting for the last few details to finish, install and shoot !

Take a look at this project . . .  the "piano" room and dining room of the Greer's.  Having worked together many years ago I knew the house.  I used a lot of creams and touch of green in the original family room, kitchen and study so my goal was to keep that going in the front of the house.  I loved having a clean slate to bring in all the elements and really awesome clients that let me play with my vision for them unchallenged !

We have a little Windy O'Connor, Lindsay Cowles, Phillip Jeffries and Kravet .. all of which compliment each other so well !

 I decided to keep this layout very unconventional and keep it more of a musical "gathering" room with two big comfortable chairs and an off center chandelier.  This space was originally very dark so lighting it up with light grass cloth, a light rug and lots of  mirrors around the space really bounces the light around.

A modern piece of art and a gorgeous sideboard of inlay added that touch of glamor we wanted.

Directly across the foyer is the all new dining room !

I adore this paper and take a look at these dining chairs !!!!

Take a look at the finished product from our shoot the other day !  All hands were on deck and it was one of the smoothest ever.  In and out in just a few hours !

The entry we cleaned up with a simple new entry cabinet and new matte finish lamp.  Clean and simple.

Your focal point when you enter to the left is the dining room and to the right, the new music room.  I wanted a cohesive plan color wise and with the low ceilings light colors throughout was a must.

This dining room is so light and airy now.  I brought in one of my favorite wall papers to give it interest and light dining room table and chairs.  Mixing a darker sideboard added a little weight back in and tied to the furniture in some of the other rooms.

Picked a really fun fabric for the back of the dining chairs to bring some color in !

And how fun is this chandelier ?!  I always like to bring in a really pretty centerpiece and even though Fall really hit today with 42ยบ I went for the tulips and baby's breath.. oh well.. it's pretty !

So different, light and airy with just the right amount of him and her.

Opposite the dining room was the "formal" living room.  I had a blank slate with the exception of the piano.  We decided to create a cozy, sofa, quite music room with light colors and pretty pieces. 

Two big, comfortable chairs, storage and new rug were the first things I pulled.  Really had fun with lighting, fabric and art . . 

This Windy O'Connor pattern I adored, it has just the right about of Maria's new favorite color (pale pink) with the green I wanted to add to tie back to the rest of the house.

The grass cloth adds texture and the right mix of bone inlay on the chest, modern art and a little marble finish off this side wall with pretty and function.

Rather than a center light I really thought dropping this fixture over the chairs was a little something unexpected and beautiful.

Not one but two large mirrors add not only depth and move all the light around .. 

And this yummy bottle green velvet side chair adds the right about of "traditional" to the space.
