Rockin Makeover

Once again, don't give up on a charming piece of furniture you've inherited......give it a new modern makeover. This lovely rocker has been reupholstered with a large ikat patterned fabric and a contrasting navy linen for piping detail and backing. My clients are thrilled with their newly revived heirloom.

Here are a few rockers and chairs with big pattern bang!!!





Kitchen Update

I was tired of my existing backsplash and countertops but when the range started to go bad I went ahead with other cosmetic updates. It is amazing how a few changes make all the difference. For this kitchen update, I changed the countertops, backsplash, hardware and installed a new range.

Honed absolute black countertops, textured black mosaic backsplash and oil rubbed hardware took my bland kitchen to a modern space.



Teen Bedroom Makeover

This teen client wanted a bedroom makeover. With a few inspiration photos from the latest RH Teen, this lovely space was created. I think it is feminine and sophisticated and a spaces she will love for years to come.



My client knew she wanted to use the pale gray RH bedding which helped select the colors for the room. I am crazy about a C2 paint I choose for my own daughter's room, Svelt C2-867. The pale blush was use as the overall wall color. Benjamin Moore's Intense White OC-51 was painted on the vaulted side walls and Love Always 876 for ceiling color.

family heirloom dresser before

This unique dresser is a family heirloom but the dark wood finish dated the room. I had the dresser painted a warm gray and added a lighter accent gray to coordinate with the marble top and make the handles pop. The paint really brightened and updated this lovey cherished piece. It turned out great.

A small basement bathroom gets a playful makeover. The homeowner wanted to keep tiled walls and floor and most of the larger elements of the bathroom. A new white vanity, modern faucet, seeded glass vanity lighting and round minimal mirror give the room a fresh look. The interesting Thibaut wallpaper becomes the focal point of the bathroom. 

I started by creating a few designs. The first concept is classic with a gorgeous Thibaut wallpaper, wood vanity, coordinating mirror, and great lighting. Second concept, and winner, I call the preppy look. Again, pretty Thibautwallpaper, white wood vanity and minimal mirror. The third concept is modern and minimal. Blue paint, dark wood vanity and a strip light. Lastly, the boho look. Cool wallpaper, vanitymirror and lighting




Don't get rid of an antique wingback chair before you consider reupholstering it! Give new life to your old family heirlooms and make them fabulous.  Check out this transformation.

This update is fresh and light. Originally, the idea was to whitewash the wood frame but the wood was too red. The frame would have looked pink so we painted the chair instead. 

A Robert Allen fabric was selected for the front of the chair and a coordinating velvet was perfect for the piping and back.

Painted wood frame with shabby chic affect. Now all this chair needs is a lovely lumbar pillow, preferably a Peter Dunham pillow.

I was asked to update a living room with a limited budget. My friend/client and I discussed color, style and budget. We kept original paint color and went a neutral colors palette. Sea salt, light creamy whites, soft grays—you will never grow tired of them. Neutrals will always be a classic.  If the mood strikes and you decide you need some vibrant hues in your life, then you simply add a few inexpensive pillows in a vibrant color, or buy a beautiful bouquet of bright flowers. This living room is one of my first "before and after" projects. Budget was $5000. Check out what you can do with that! BOOM!


The project began with a few inspirational images.....

Here is the living room now!!! Cozy and inviting,
