Multi-Room Transformation

Project Location: Lexington, MA

Over the last couple of months I have worked on multiple living spaces (family room, dining room, playroom) within a home in Lexington, MA. The main goal for these rooms was to create a complete refresh of the living spaces that allowed for function and incorporated style along with comfort while also working with non-traditional dimensions. Here are some key points, tips & tricks, and details about each room I designed along with before & after pictures.

Family Room

·      I added a larger sectional to be more proportional and created a more practical angle for the family to relax and watch TV. This longer sectional allowed for more space for each family member

·      Fun fact alert! This Crypton sofa fabric is kid friendly! This fabric is similar to sunbrella where it's highly stain resistant and easy to clean

·      After drawing the floor-plan, figuring out the space planning, and knowing I wanted to add a chair next to the fireplace; I knew that I would have to source a carpet where I could customize it’s length and width to fit the room (9’-6" x 15’-6")

·      This rug is pet-friendly! With my clients having two cats, I was able to find a gorgeous Stanton carpet at my local rug store and have them cut it to size and serge the edge

·      This rug became the inspiration for the rest of the room’s style and color scheme

·     Modern patterned pillows to add a pop of color and texture to the room were added to complete the look

·      The furniture includes additional storage components to hold toys, books, blankets, extra pillows, etc. 

·      Fun fact alert! The coffee table ottoman has a lift top to store any items and pulls up to the sectional for a comfortable foot rest

·      I included an entertainment console with drawers and doors for small items and flanked the fireplace with bookcases to hold items they would like to display, with baskets on the bottom shelf for books and small toys

·      At the end of the room, I selected a swivel chair and upholstered it in an ice blue fabric to tie into the blue geometric pillow fabric

·      The two bookcases create a nice symmetry at the end of the room and help balance out the height of the floor-to-ceiling navy drapery panels

Additional “fun facts!”

·      Honeycomb top/down, bottom/up light filtering shades were added throughout the home for superior functionality and privacy

·      All of the art in the living room was customized by a trade vendor, where I was able to crop to the right size as well as select the frame style and finish

·      The room was accessorized to carry the blues and silvers throughout

Dining Room

·      I wanted to keep the dining room more classic, and incorporated a custom dining table and chairs in a dark chocolate/espresso stain

·      I incorporated an existing piece of art, which beautifully compliments the custom art added into the family room

·      The chandelier was replaced with a beautiful drum pendant, which gives the space more “drama” and a modern edge

·      The floor-to-ceiling drapery panels add a nice pop of contrast against the light gray walls

I don’t know about you but my eyes are immediately drawn to the orange velvet chair in this TV room I designed - it sure is lux-ur-ious and adds a punch!

Good Flow

One of my favorite spaces I have designed...! 

The flow of one room to another should be seamless and each room should compliment one another. Here is a prime example of how the kitchen and casual living space both reflect a relaxed and classic vibe.

Raspberry Fabric Inspiration

While this palette might appear to be red; this is actually designed around the color “raspberry” where shades of red, magenta, and pink make up the overall color story. 

Not all of these fabrics will be used, it's more for inspiration to see what my client will like!

Power of the Geode

Art comes in all shapes, sizes, materials, and can be used on an energy basis as well.

This geode in particular brings subtle and artistic transformation to my powder room while simultaneously creating a chi flow and providing a sense of balance and positive energy.

Design Highlights from Austin, TX!

I am fortunate enough to travel from time-to-time for work installations and client jobs, and in my recent visit in Austin, I stayed at the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt off of famous Rainy Street, where I found so much design beauty and inspiration in this area.

Here are some design highlights from the hotel and local area where I drew this inspiration from...

Sneak Peak - Salem, NH

This room has me “feeling blue” but in a good way! Loving these blue accents in an almost-finished living room in Salem, NH.

We are waiting on club chairs, art and lighting to be delivered before the final reveal. 

Here's how the design started

Family Room Tribal Design

I recently designed a family room and wanted to give my client and their family a space that was fresh, fun, and of course fabulous. This design was all inspired by this colorful tribal fabric shown on the finish board below, allowing for a comfortable ambience as well. 

In order to bring this look together, I used pops of color on the sofa, pillows and chairs (bold burnt red pillows and tribal patterns) while keeping the sectional in more of a darker tone (in this case, charcoal/black). The chairs by the fireplace will be upholstered in a bold red fabric with a black and off-gray tribal pillow and I added some abstract art which will be featured on the fireplace mantel for the ultimate addition and tie-in for the room.

Commercial Lobby - Newton, MA

A new commercial re-design project is underway! It’s going to be quite the transformation, coming this summer/early fall.

I am replacing their indoor garden beds with faux succulent gardens, installing new carpeting, lighting, art, furniture, signage and hardware.

More to come!
