I hope everyone has had a great week! I am so happy to share a few pics of a house we did where I happened to be over while they were moving in furniture! I love seeing the transformation and thought you would, too!
Best of all, it was so fun catching up with my friend Ohara Davies-Gaetano from California! She was the designer on the project and has been published in Veranda, so I knew it would be AMAZING!! She does look like a California beauty, doesn’t she? Notice on the staircase we took the plaster down to the stair treads, giving that clean European feel!!!
This master suite is just dreamy with the soothing, pale blue-green plastered walls!!!
I love how they took the dark-stained walnut floors to a more natural bleached look. It’s furnished to perfection with the console hiding the TV at the end of the bed. I would love to stay here!
This bathroom previously had a mosaic border design in a deep terracotta circling the room.
Rather than removing it, we thought it would be interesting to just plaster over the tile and let a portion of the design show though! What do you think? Super cool, right?!
The dining room is really lovely with its massive fireplace and soft textural furnishings. I especially like the mix of painted and stained furniture. Mixing it up makes a home so much warmer and unique! This house is so beautiful it makes me want to start book four!!! I am hoping to photograph it once it’s completely done!
This was a fun piece of furniture to redo! Previously, this was all stained like the top. Wanting some relief from the stained chairs, we finished the bottom in a greige tone using an aging technique to balance her eclectic mix of furnishings.
I wanted to share how this homeowner had done her staircase runner so it extends onto the floor! I get so many great ideas visiting all of my job sites!
With so many homes moving to the contemporary side, it was really fun being involved in this traditional English one! Full of rich colors and lots of pattern, glazing the painted cabinet to read like stained wood and faux finishing the wainscoting and molding really brought focus to the wallpaper and floral sinks.
Blue was the theme of this guest suite bath! Bringing tones from the floors and the counters into the cabinet tied all the colorations together in the space. I really love when sconces are placed on mirrors – it seems to work well in any design style!
To alter this once shabby chic, peely paint finish to one of refinement, florals were added into the panels, totally transforming this piece. So many existing furniture pieces can be revamped with paint to go in a new decor style! If the shape and scale is right, consider paint!!
While all the construction was going on at my home and my garage studio was filled with building supplies, I took a long break from painting. Nerve wracking as it was, I just finished this commission for Marie Flanigan Interiors.
It was so fun to see one of my pieces of art hanging in the space. What a beautiful room they designed!!! I was so happy to be a part of it!!!
Marie had photographer Julie Soefer shoot a close up of the art! So sweet, they even accessorized the mantel with a Segreto Style book!! Thanks, gals! It inspires me to paint more…I know what I will be doing this weekend!!!
I hope everyone has a great week!
