Dining Room Makeover

Here is a dining room makeover I recently completed.  I also made over the family room (along with other rooms still to be revealed) that I posted about here.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, my client just wanted to make their home more welcoming and comfortable without spending a million bucks, as they will most likely only be in this home for a few more years.  

We did not do any painting and they already had all their major furnishing for the space. I'll be honest, I was a little worried about what I was to come up with the burgundy dining chairs!  But, somehow it all seemed to come together. Here is the plan I came up with:

And here is how it turned out!





My clients already had the mirror, console table, and accessories shown in the below photo.  They were just scattered around the house, so I just rounded them up and put them together.


I think the space turned out great!  My clients were also very happy with how it turned out.  They said they just want to come and 'sit' in the room because it is just so warm!

  1. Great job, Melissa! I love the color you chose for the chairs. Maroon compliments the overall look of the room. It looks very classy without looking boring. A problem with interior designing though, is that some designers like to keep it simple, but sometimes border on the boring side. Oh well, yours is definitely far from boring. :D

How to Accessorize an End Table or Nightstand

Stuck on how to accessorize an end table or nightstand? 
There are so many ways to style/accessorize a table, and really there are no rules. However, if you aren't sure where to begin below is a list of basic items to use that you can't go wrong with:
*A lamp * Artwork/mirror *Books * Floral/branches



In addition, here are a few more accessorizing tips to get you on your way:
Use items of varied heights to keep the eye moving.  Have something short, something medium, and something tall.  Use stacked books to add height if needed.

Layer your accessories.  Don't be afraid to let your lamp cover a portion of the artwork.

Group differently shaped items together.  If everything is square/rectangle it just looks boring.

Add pops of color.

Use unique items that mean something to you, such as something purchased from a trip.  These are great conversation starters, and will add a lot of character to your arrangement.

Project Reveal: Church Foyer Makeover

I apologize for being a little MIA on this blog lately!  Life has been busy lately working with local clients, my family visiting, & working on our newly purchased home.

Recently, I completed a project that I would like to share.  A local church hired me to help them redecorate their foyer area.  They wanted something new, fresh & modern that would go along with the existing paint, flooring, and lighting.

Here are the BEFORE photos:


This is what it looks like now!

A special thanks to Palmetto Street Church of God for allowing me the privilege to help make their foyer shine!

How to NOT make a TV a focal point

I like T.V. just as much as the next person - every Monday night you will find me right in front of it glued to The Bachelor/ette!  Even still, I don't like it when a huge flat screen T.V. is the main attraction in a space.  I don't think a T.V. necessarily needs to be hidden from sight,  just placed somewhat inconspicuously.  There are all sorts of nifty contraptions out there for framing, making it appear as a mirror when off, having a motorized framed piece of art slide over it,etc - all fantastic solutions, but all very expensive solutions. Below are some awesome ways to tastefully place a T.V. in a room without it being the focal point of the room or breaking the bank.

Surround it with art.  All the blacks in the art help to make the black screen not stick out so much. source
