THE STORY OF A ROOM: THE FINISHED ROOM

Thank you all so much for reading my series this week. And I want to thank my amazing client for letting me share this story and her home with all of you. 

 If you are just tuning in check out the intro to this series here.  


Let's review what we started with:

Lots of beige and brown were happening in both of these rooms. The beautiful architectural detail wasn't living up to it's full potential for sure!

 
I hope you enjoy seeing the end  result as much as I do!


I love how these rooms flow into each other!


We chose the Salvaged Wood and Concrete table from Restoration. The chairs are from Noir furniture. The Imperial Trellis wallpaper makes the beautiful trim-work stand out even more.


The chandelier is from Pottery Barn. All of the flowers on the table are a combination from Pier 1, Pottery Barn and Alice Lane Home Collection.


To display all of my clients dishes we chose the Barrymore Cabinet.

The curtain fabric is Jaipur Tree in Poppy and the panels were made by Plush Studio. The paint color in the Living Room is Palladian Blue.




The rug is the Safavieh Soho rug and we did it in an 8' round.

Shelves and frames are from Pottery Barn.

 The chairs are the Leyland Armless chair and we had them upholstered in Schumacher High Voltage.

The gold side table is from world market. All of the accessories on the table are from Alice Lane Home Collection.



The roman shades are done in Bleeker in Absinthe and I loved how they turned out! We hung them a couple feet taller than the actual windows so we could make the windows appear grander. We had them made by Windows by Melissa.  The window bench seat is made by Rocky Mountain Upholstery.

The geometric pillow is from Alice Lane Home Collection.


The ombre pillow and sequin pillow are from Alice Lane Home Collection.

These spaces are so fun and so ME which is why I love them. A little traditional mixed with bold patterns and colors. It's amazing to see a blank canvas transformed into a room full of beautiful things and lots of personality!

  6. Hi Kirsten! Thank you so much for this series. It will help me a lot to put together a few makeovers in my house. The process to get to a result is the most difficult to those who are not a pro like you :)
    Really love the colors and the patterns of both rooms. I think that the only thing that i change is the hight of the curtais, i put them neer ceeling, above the little windows, because i think the room seemes higher.
    A big kiss.

  12. I have loved following along this week. I have a couple questions. Did they give you a budget in the beginning or did it evolve? Do you charge by the hour/job/percentage of items bought? And lastly...How do I hire you to do this for my home?

    1. We kinda had a budget but some of my clients just want me to present lots of options in a variety of price ranges and they choose what they like best. They don't always want to be tied down to a number. They can also purchase over time if they don't want to do it all at once. I usually charge by the hour or do a flat rate. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Everything about this is beautiful. BRAVO!! I really enjoyed this series. I love seeing other designers' process. Great job. P.S. You know you're obsessive (ahem...me!) when you zero in on those awesome chevron chairs. A flip of a cushion and they'd be perfectly symmetrical ;)

  27. You truly have a gift for creating great spaces. I love it all but especially the round rug (why have I been ignoring how stylish they are?) and that the floating shelves are off-center. Genius!

  43. I think I may have found the answer to my grand piano wall. It's a difficult wall to hang art on, but these floating shelves might be it. Love it all! Good job.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means a lot. I try and answer any questions directly in the comment section so if you ask a question come back to look for my answer. However it is much easier for me to answer questions through email at kirstenkrason@gmail.com.
