Lately Mom and I have spent some time working and reworking some designs for some current projects we have flying around. With all of the tweaks and redesigns, I wanted to show you the insides of a current project and how the process has changed and evolved.
I mentioned that my MIL is redoing her kitchen and she's also redoing her living room, too. It has been super fun to get to work with a family member AND working with both of my moms is such a plus! We are trying to incorporate her existing furniture into a new plan for her main level family room.
When she first mentioned redoing this room, I instantly got to work (in my head) imaging a plan for the room. She wanted to do a light blue on the walls to make it lighter in the space. Despite having a french door and five windows in this room, they live in the woods and what light they do have gets filtered throughout the day.
My very first design plan was inspired by the colors in this room.
It's light and airy and similar to a color she has used throughout the lower floors in her home already. And would hold up well to her saddle leather furniture.
When we really started putting our heads together on the direction of the room, she said would like to keep her current room-size Persian in the room (because duh, it's a room sized Persian!). She also wanted something a bit different from the rest of the house's light blueish green wall color so we went bolder. In order to hold up to the dark Persian and the leather furniture we opted for a darker blue with a bit of a library feel. We're going to paint underneath the chair rail a bright white and maybe add some mouldings for detail.
After the weekend, we've already tweaked this plan again in favor of reflective glass lamps, a slimmer profile chair and adding a complementary color to the ceiling! For over-stimulated like myself, this is where the real fun begins! It's so cool to see all the turns the ship will take on the way to the destination.
