project progress

Lack of posting makes E a very dull girl, I know...but I am getting a lot done on various projects. My mom's house, which if you remember was a dark, cluttered mess of antiques and collections:

 ...has really transformed! The living room is super awkward because it has open walls on two sides and the tv is in an odd spot. We have painted the entire house white, totally changed the entry with a custom light fixture and bench cushion, and modernized the kitchen seating area. I thought the long, straight sofa above was too bulky in the living room so I got her a round coffee table and two curving sofas. A circular seating group has made all the difference!

Now we are working on art, side tables, etc, but we have come so far in just three months - I am so proud of my mother. She was once obsessed with antiques and all her collections - and she still insists that almost everything be hand made by her artist and craftsmen friends - but now she loves modern, spare design and we have had so much fun together working on her house. I will cherish this time forever.

My awesome client who I did this living room design for: now ready to work on her master bedroom. It is a smallish room with a gorgeous, moody gray on all walls and trim. Of course she has some gorgeous deco pieces from her family - including a chinese deco rug and burl chest. I took over a ton of fabrics to make roman shades - they look so different with the light shining through them - you really can't see all the bold colors.

But that is what I am dealing with right now. Will definitely keep you posted... Have a great weekend!

It's amazing what a can of white paint can do! Looks fantastic.
