Love muffins. I am sharing my newest and largest project with you all today. A complete house renovation. No. I am not even kidding. My fabulous family that I am working with, lives deep in the heart of Texas and I am completely designing and reworking their spaces all from the comfort of my office in Virginia. Technology these days, I tell ya. They recently purchased a ranch style home that they were prepared to completely gut down to its very bare bones. This is where I come in. We are ripping out walls, floors, bathrooms and kitchens people. This is my playground. Fortunately my clients and I share many things in common. 1. We have the same taste. 2. They are equally as obsessed with their dogs as I am. Legit. 3. They are all about getting the job done. One of my biggest gifts, and also downfalls in life would be my persistence. This is starting to sound like an interview. But seriously, this project is moving along full speed ahead and today I am sharing two actual spaces where we have finished the actual design for the room.
First up, the focal point of any home. The entryway. People. This is where you make your first impression on your guests. As you can see from the before pictures below, the house is very dated. Our first step was to rip out the existing tile flooring and replace with a bamboo ebony stained wood floor. All I can say is loving it. The once light grey walls will be replaced with a glamorous grey grasscloth wall covering. GGG wall covering if you will. While the bones of the space will be classic and timeless, I have incorporated some high fashion pieces to give the entryway a unique and chic face lift.
The befores of the entry.
And to the next space being designed, the family room. As you can see from the above pictures, the entry way leads directly into the family room. You will notice the awesome wood paneling that once covered the walls. You can guess what happened to all of that. We have gone with a stain that matches the flooring to adorn the beams on the ceiling and completely white walls. I cannot wait to see how open and airy this space will now look. Obviously we will have an intimate seating area around the fireplace facing in to the rest of the space. The name of the game is seating, seating and more seating. Also not seen here, would be two wingbacks that we will be having recovered in a chartreuse hue and piped with navy blue adornment.I told you they love their dogs. Their dogs just happen to be Frenchies. How appropriate is frenchy bulldog art? Also very near and dear to their hearts.
Some more befores of the space.
These bookshelves will be gutted and rebuilt with white cabinetry. Grasscloth will line the backs of these babies.
This honestly has been the best project. The afters are going to be insane. Cannot wait to share the rest of the plans with you all!
I must warn you. I have an ENORMOUS treat in store for you all this morning. Enormous. Let's just say it involves high fashion bedding and a giveaway. This is not opposite day, April Fool's or some practical joke. Check back in sec. Loves!
