One of my favorite clients. Warm, fun, open, we have great work flow.
Sue recently remodeled her kitchen which led us into a conversation about her (adjoining) living room. That scenario when you change one room and it makes the next room look less than? Husbands love this, lol.
We decided to take a low-maintenance restyle approach. The living room had an olive accent wall, floral couch recently replaced with a cute tan #, and some furniture she wasn’t crazy about. Sue loves a coastal-inspired design style, with a light, warm color palette.
We discussed a new plan that of course begins with paint. Not that I don’t love gray, I do, but it’s almost refreshing to hear a client say, NO GRAY. Not my thing… I like warm coffee shops :)
We chose Sherwin Williams totally tan. A warm tan with almost a coral undertone. We discussed adding a white floor lamp, white accents, new art, pillows, a desk, accents… Hovering in the tan, white, natural, beachy realm with pops of coral.
It seemed to come together somewhat effortlessly. New things, old things, editing, clapping.
One of our favorite parts is 2 large tan/white floral prints from Pier One placed behind the couch. Sue remarked that she never would have thought to repeat the same artwork twice. This is a great trick, especially when the artwork is somewhat abstract!
The “new” room has a welcoming ahhhhhh, fresh, transitional feel. Sue loves it :)
I do a lot of restyle collaboration with clients. Sometimes you can work well with old and new. Need help? Call me.
