Well how the heck are ya?
Yup it’s been a while and I feel shame that I am neglecting you guys but I am not giving up and I’m determined to get back on schedule!
Friday I had an install in a home office space. I worked on this renovation all last winter and we have slowly been working our way through designing the rooms! They are dream clients….so trusting what I do and the process.
This is the before….after they moved in. I had some work to do…..but I knew I could bring this space to life as it had good bones! So…..I got to shopping which is the fun part.
Well kind of….I mean after 2 or three days I can hardly remember what I’ve bought and my living room looks like a retail store:)
I have said this before but it is all about the layering. Plus I needed to work with what was there. Now I am not a fan of “semi-attached” back cushions for the very reason you see above. You can’t flip them or have them re-stuffed. But….I had an idea on how to help that situation out!
One of the things I wanted to do was layer a rug over the bottom rug to add coziness.
I lucked out and found this vintage Oushak which happened to be a perfect match! In my opinion it was a game changer for the room…..
We used his law books to fill many of the shelves…..we left the stickers on for their kids to take off!
And you can see I tucked in a throw to cover the back cushion!
I lucked out finding the console that fit perfectly in the space between the bookshelves!
I found the floor lamp at Pottery Barn.
We worked around the existing art of the Atlanta skyline.
I love the vintage notary stamp I found while scouting around for some patina…..
Another trick is to use some baskets to add texture. Too many books or accessories can look messy!
I am so happy to be able to share some design with y’all…..believe it or not I have been busy but sometimes it takes a while to get to this point in a project!
13 days until I take off for Nantucket! I am pretty pumped to take a little break. My neighbor likes it because she will get to boss me a round and nothing makes her happier:)
Camilita is lying beside me with the death stare as she is ready for her walk so let me run!
Be back soon!
