She did a lot of the work herself, but collaborated with me on paint colors, materials used, and floor stain, as well as contractor referrals. She just sent me the pictures of her home and I was so excited about the transformation I had to share!
before: light wood floors, oak cabinets, granite countertop and backsplash
after: light gray painted cabinets in Sherwin Williams Gray Clouds, scalloped carrara marble backsplash, Restoration Hardware glass knobs, and Cambria Torquay Countertops, dark-stained wood floors to add contrast. Eventually she will have the Serena & Lily barstools I love so much at the bar (those will really finish off the space)
before: oak cabinets, oil rubbed bronze hardware, cafe curtains
after: Sherwin Williams Gray Cloud painted cabinets, RH glass knobs, tore out carpet and added wood floors, and she kept the original paint for now
before: light oak banister and stairs, beige carpet runner
after: painted white stairs and banister legs, darker stained railing, new carpet runner, new Marigot chandelier from Visual Comfort, she kept the original tile and wall color for now
Restoration Hardware Monastery Round Table, she sourced the chairs, curtains, and light herself with a little direction Overstock Bamboo Chairs, Louis Chairs, and the striped curtains (super cute, right?), and Shades of Light Caged Light. Rugs are on their way...
The project isn't completed yet, but we are almost there. And can I say quickly how much I love my job because of the people I get to work with? This client is the epitome of southern charm. She has a slight southern accent that I could listen to for days, and is beautiful and sweet. I get so sad when my projects finish up because that means I don't get to see my clients as much any more. Maybe I should start a book group with all my clients so I have an excuse to keep seeing them? What do you think?!
Hope you enjoyed these before + after photos. And I also hope this helped you see that with just cosmetic updates how much more enjoyable a home can be. And the best part - now this home reflects her beautiful personality.
