before and after {interior design}













Ok... So what do you all think?

With this project I was totally on cloud nine... I had so much fun with this client. No joke from the minute I walked into a meeting with her... I was laughing the entire time! Truth!!! For those of you who know me well... I definitely like a good laugh!!!!   By the end of each meeting we were BFF's.  Oh how I miss my BFF!!! Mary Jane thank you... You're the best!!! 

Now back to this job... Everything except the piano, 2 bookcases and 2 chairs {which I re-structured and had slipcovered} were from my clients own personal collection. I did a "huge" wild card in this room... Actually 2.  Do you know what they are? Hmmmm... I'll let you guess!!! Please let me know... {smile}

baby...



Let's dance the night away! Don't you feel like just dressing up and having a fancy dinner party? Right now I really want too... I want to dance and laugh the night away! I go through times when I just want to get fancy... Don't get me wrong I love lounging in my PJ's and cuddling with my kiddos on the couch {shhhhh that's my all time  favorite}! So guess what... Stand up and start planning! You deserve it! Just promise me one thing, don't forget to get fancy {wink}!!!

before and after {interior design}



This job was absolutely perfect! Another start from scratch... Definitely my favorite kind of project!!! Remember this {living room} I showed you the before and afters... Well, this is the same house. I adored working with this family in La Jolla.    


I started out by having the fireplace brick painted white... The room needed a clean and continuous feeling. The minute we did just that the room became very open and alive.   


My clients wanted this room to be extremely comfortable for family and friends to sit and enjoy TV while dinner is being made. I designed the room around a custom sofa/chaise. I wanted people to be able lounge and relax when no one was at home on the chaise, but if friends were coming over they still had more seating. It worked out perfectly!!!!      


I picked a fabric for the sofa that was a commercial grade because of all the wear and tear that it would be enduring {grandkids and friends... lol}. You literally could pick this piece up and put it into a hotel lobby... And still look fabulous after all the guests lounged, jumped, drooled and simply sat on it for long periods of time. Through many trials and errors with interior design I have learned  that longevity is the key for the amount of money my clients are spending.  It's so important to think ahead... Especially when we're customizing each and every piece in their home. You want everything to last... And look fabulous! 


Coastal colors mixed in with comfortable sand tones blended so well together which helped coordinate the rest of the house very nicely.  I mixed in a custom jute rug and an old pine wood coffee table for more texture and warmth. I love this combination...  

 

After all the major pieces were finalized I worked my magic and surprised my clients with the rest of the accessories. I had so much fun finishing off the room without them knowing what I was going to put in {sneaky}.



Of course I added my signature blue and white classic Asian pottery and a slipcovered white wingback. Hello, I couldn't resist! This wingback is the perfect chair for the quiet reader who needs some alone time. A definite must in any family room...


So all in all... I give this project an A+! What do you think? I would love your feed back....

love day... {xoxo}

I hope you all had a fabulous and memorable Valentine's yesterday!  I sure did! My new thought process with my little ones is... Everything I do or say to them needs to be extra special and super important. These kids really mean the world to me. They have stuck by my side and supported me through everything positive and negative going on in my life. Plus, they're only young once so I want them to have the best youth possible!!!! So yesterday I planned something they wouldn't forget! Well, I hope they wouldn't forget {wink}. We started our day off with a fun coastal bike ride which turned into a run {I hope no one saw me running while I held the kids bikes... LOL} then we took a Valentine's family cooking class at Sur La Table in La Jolla...      I've always wanted to take a cooking class there. No joke for years, but never got around to it. OMG... We had a blast! At first my little guy, was like really mom, but by the end of the class he loved it! We laughed then focused... Then laughed some more! It was non-stop silliness! One point for this mommy {yes}Being able to create this memory with the loves of my life, Taylor and Ryan meant the world to me.  I will never forget my first cooking class with my family... Happy Valentine's Taylor and Ryan! Mommy loves you so much... Hope you all had a memorable day with the ones you love! Would love to hear what you all did? 

Happy Sunday!!!
