Ya’ll remember that post I did a few weeks ago about my first interior design job? Well, I finished it this evening! Let me share some before pictures first.
The request I had from the homeowners was this: create a space that is brighter and more open feeling. They wanted the accent colors to be red and blue. They had three chairs that I had to incorporate, as well as the tv and tv console.
So, off I went to try to accomplish this room and make it look fabulous. If I’m honest, I was nervous about the red and blue. I was concerned about the room looking like a Fourth of July party, and I definitely couldn’t let that happen. So, I made my main colors gray and light beige, with accents of red and blue. I painted, whitewashed the brick fireplace, changed out the ceiling fan (Nathan helped me with this ☺️), hung new curtains and curtain rods, and replaced all the old decor and furniture.
Without further ado, here are the afters.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. It feels bright, airy, and spacious now. I love all the different little areas to sit and snuggle up. So very inviting! The homeowners were happy as well, so that counts as a win to me!
