Project Peek: Selecting Rugs

I am working with a  local client to decorate a down stairs family room.  When I begin putting together a design for any room, I have to figure out where to start. As you can see from the floor plan below, the room is quite large and needed 4 rugs.  I decided to make the rugs my starting point.  Before I started looking for rugs, I discussed with my clients what colors they were interested in and what their style was.


 Because the rugs are such a big part of the room, I wanted my clients' input.  I always strive to make sure I am putting together a design that is tailored to my clients' tastes.  To do this, I emailed them two different groupings of  rugs to pick from:








My clients picked 'Option A'.  The next step was to figure which rug was going where.  I emailed them two floor plans with the rugs placed in different places.





My clients decided on 'Rug Arrangement A'.  However, they wanted to put a natural fiber rug at the entrance.  Which I thought was a great idea.  I found them a basketweave seagrass rug with a pumpkin border.



At that point, we were ready to order!  

Below is a picture I took of the rugs once they arrived. (Not placed where they belong, just kind of stacked on each other).


More progress has been made on this room that I look forward to sharing soon!

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.
via
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!

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
