Chic but shabby no more....a client project.

My friend and client LOVES the Shabby Chic look.....but
was eager to 'finish' her spaces with a bit more
contemporary touches, texture and an overall collected look.
All of these requests are right up my design-loving alley!

For full disclosure, the spaces were pretty terrific 'as is'.  This homeowner
has done alot of renovations and is a collector of beautiful
vintage pieces so I had a great base with which to work.
She just needed help on bringing it all together.

We added classic blue and white pieces {the lamp below is a monster!},
seagrass, tortoise bamboo blinds, reupholstered her french chairs,
added the dramatic Designers Guild pillows, created a gallery
wall using vintage frames with beautiful photos of the homeowner's
FOUR daughters mixed with vintage prints and plates - ahhhh, a collected
look - YUMMY!

This is really my favorite kind of project - I love to get in clients 
homes are really style their spaces to reflect their personalities, 
interests, values and lifestyle.

Ok, it was 75 degrees today - I SO have spring-fever and
need to get out in my gardens!!!  How bout you?
Did the sun shine on you today?

    the space and I really love
    it! Need to add some of
    these same elements to my
    own home, especially now
    that SPRING has sprung. 80
    today, baby!!!

    Happy Sunday,

  8. Love what you did in the space and especially the neutral with the pop of color the pillows bring. Oh, and the gallery wall collection is perfect!

  9. Love it! I love the white with the color mixed in. I need to find this happy medium in my space as well. Can you tell me where the bamboo shades came from? I have looked and looked but they all look so ugly to me in person but I love them when I see them in rooms with light curtains.


I always love to hear your thoughts! Please share!
