Custom Succulents

I created these custom faux floral arrangements, using a variety of succulents and added a pop of color to compliment the color schemes in an upcoming property in Southern California!

I’ll be heading there in a few weeks to do the installation! More photos to come

Family Room Design - Andover, MA

This week I am working on two color concepts for a family room project in Andover, MA.

Also included in the re-design is a new fireplace design, custom built-ins and added lighting.

This will be quite the transformation!

Thanksgiving Decor & Tablescape

I created a warm yet polished, and welcoming yet stylish setting as I prepared my house to host Thanksgiving.

Styling my dinner table was something I took my time on with collecting and buying items so that I was able to slowly build my vision and color scheme. I instantly fell in love with cb2’s table runner (https://www.cb2.com/regal-monkeys-table-runner/f17660) and used that as my muse. I then accessorized with simple mustard cloth napkins, spray painted gold and silver pumpkins and leaves, and teal vases with flowers in corresponding colors from the table runner to wrap the entire look together.

Design Show in the Concrete Jungle

I attended the Boutique Design Show in NYC over the weekend, which is a trade show held for designers to experience first-hand what all of the upcoming trends will be relating to furniture, fabrics, finishes, décor, and more!

It was very inspiring to see works of art across multiple products and finishes, such as stone tiles and wood and how both can be used in unique and innovative ways…all of which I look forward to incorporating these new concepts into 2019 projects.

I also discovered a unique softgoods company, which I have been looking for, so I can further expand my options to clients. More bedding, drapery and pillow options are here!

Here are some highlights:

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

TV Room Design

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!

More photos to come once a few more pieces arrive!
