The palette of this beautiful home near the ocean is done mainly in navy, blues and reds. But the client is an eclectic art collector and recently acquired this on a trip to Cannes (photo taken with my iphone):
We want to hang the new artwork in the dining room over this piece from Drexel Heritage's Postebello Home line:
And although I don't want to disrupt the entire palette of the house, I do want to tweak the colors in the new dining room a bit. The new artwork was my inspiration.
This is the fabric we are considering for the two wingback chairs to flank the ends of the dining table. They will have a solid fabric on the front and this on the back. Now that we are pretty sure we have our fabric we have to wait for samples to confirm that it works in the client's space and then order it and wait for the chairs to be made. It all takes time.
On another project, wallpaper has been ordered (more waiting),
Antonina Vella Trellis Wallpaper
Along with this bench that will be used for a coffee table ...
New carpet will be installed and a few decorative changes made once the wallpaper is installed and the new furniture (including a curved dining settee that has not yet been ordered) is delivered.
In another home, a lovely 50's ranch, a laundry room remodel is under construction. The house very traditional but I want the laundry room to be a little fun so although we are carrying the existing cabinet style into the laundry room I am changing the hardware to be a little more fun and shiny. Wyeth Blue by Benjamin Moore will be painted on the walls. We pushed out one wall into the hall closet behind it to create a space for storage and folding laundry, and that can also be used as a staging area for parties. (See, don't you wish I had photos?).
Numerous other upholstery, paint and drapery projects, and a kitchen remodel that is starting this week are part of what has been keeping me busy ...
Along with this little girl who came to visit last week! She will be 5 months old today! Life is good!
Happy Monday everyone. xo
