online design: bachelor edition

Last week, I was contacted by a new client who lives in Florida, asking me to help him give his master bedroom and bathroom a little makeover.  He had great furniture to start with, so we just wanted to make the room feel a little more pulled together.  With a fresh coat of warm gray paint, some deep blue hues, and some graphic art, we are going to make a space that is true to both his style and personality.   Below you can see a picture of his room as it currently sits, as well as the inspiration board I put together for him.

client project: bedroom reveal

Alright guys, I have another reveal for you all today.  I finished this bedroom at the end of last year, and when I first saw it, I was SO excited to tackle it.  Why you ask?  Well have a look for yourself.  
Dated green carpet, ugly curtains, and paint that is way too dark all contributed to the cave-like atmosphere of this room.  Believe it or not, the space is actually really large, and there is plenty of light coming in.  The only problem was that it was being squashed by the dark finishes.  
To combat this, we ripped out the carpet, threw out the old curtains, and painted the walls in a lighter, brighter hue.  My client really liked clean lines, low profiles, and maple wood, so by pairing simple furniture with a lot of light colors, we were able to create a clean, sunny space.  Here is how everything came together.  
I’m currently working on a remodel of this master bathroom, so that white built-in on the left side of the picture has since been removed.  You would not believe the amount of closet space we gained by ripping it out. 

Let’s look at another comparison in this space:


Although the room was originally designed for the bed to be positioned under these lights, we wanted to switch things up, giving the room a different feel, and we found that this spot functioned quite nicely as a little sitting area.

Here’s an view of the entire room:

Isn’t it amazing what a few simple changes can do?

client project: kitchen reveal

I know, I know, I’m a neglectful blogger.  So I’ll try to make it up to you all by giving you something really juicy today: a kitchen reveal!  I haven’t taken “final” photos yet, but you’ll at least be able to see how it all came together.

A few weeks ago, I talked about the progress we were making in this kitchen.  I won’t bore those of you who are faithful readers, so if you missed the post, you can go back and read it here.

In the rest of the house, there are stunning original wood floors.  As you can see in the before picture, there was some pretty ugly linoleum making itself at home in the kitchen before I got there.  So we peeled it back, saw wood floors underneath, crossed our fingers, and hoped for the best.

After ripping up nearly all of the linoleum, right when the homeowners got to the end of the floor, they uncovered a big patch where the hardwood floors were damaged, meaning we wouldn’t be able to save the originals.  
We knew from the beginning we might not be able to save them, and if that was the case, our backup plan had been to just put tile in the kitchen.  We even went to the extent of picking out tile, but right before we pulled the trigger, we decided to look into how much it would cost to have the hardwood floors repaired.  
Because of how they were damaged, it would have cost almost the same amount to repair the floors as it would to just replace them altogether.  So, we decided to switch gears and have new hardwood floors put in.  And let me tell you, they look just like the originals.  We love them.  Are you guys ready for the afters?  Let’s take one more look at the before:
…and after:
At the beginning we were a little apprehensive when it came to running wood floors into the kitchen, as we didn’t want the floors to be too matchy-matchy with the cabinets.  However, once we put rugs in the space, it will help to break up all the wood. 
Here’s one more look at the end result.  I can’t wait to get back there, do some final tweaking/accessorizing, and take final images so I can show you guys the gorgeousness that is the detail of that backsplash.  Up close, it’s absolutely stunning.
