Colorful Ranch Style Home

First I want to start by saying that I'm incredibly sad that I haven't had time to post anything lately.  We have been so extremely busy with so many projects that time has gotten away from me.  I do apologize.

 I just completed a project for a client last week that we really enjoyed!  My client decided that they didn't want to be in their home while all the renovations were taking place.  They moved out for a month and rented a home for that duration.  I'd say they are smart clients!

We remodeled both of their bathrooms, replaced the flooring, and painted every square inch of the space, including those beams.  Our goal was to make their home feel more modern by using fresh updated colors  along with bold colors which my client absolutely loves.

This painting was created by a local artist with all the colors my client wanted to incorporate in her newly decorated home.

We found this rug that was exactly the colors the client and I had in mind for the living room.  My client found the leather couch herself and we had 2 custom chairs made to go along with it.  She also had the painting and really wanted us to incorporate it into the space.  We purposely placed some other "Texas" items throughout the home at her request and it really added a fun flair.

I'm in love with this rug.

My workroom made this fabulous coffee table.  I showed them a picture of what I wanted and they got to work and created this lovely piece.  It adds that rustic flair that makes every room have a relaxed feel to it.   The mantel was also redone and painted.  Don't you love the painted brick?  It really makes the room feel more modern and sophisticated.

I did some antique shopping and found some fun treasures to place along with the new accessories.

The eclectic mix of pillows really brought the room together.

This amazing pillow was imported from Turkey.  It's incredibly soft and the design is so amazing with the touches of blue in the rug.  Don't you just love the curves of the chairs?

We added a little reading corner.  We moved her antique desk from one of the other rooms and placed a round mirror above it.  Her vintage clock was moved from the mantel to the desk and they make a great pair. This nubby pouf from India serves as a great foot stool.

On the opposite wall, we did the same thing with a buffet the client already had.  The desk and the buffet look great together on each side of the doorway.  You can see the newly painted beams in this picture.  We added recessed lighting to the room as well and that made it extremely light and bright.

These blown glass lamps are stunning and are yet another wonderful texture in the space. The client had the lion statue that I incorporated into the vignette. The glass twisty balls add a touch of whimsy.

The bathrooms turned out beautifully too.  We replace the bathtub, tile, countertops and fixtures.  Painted the cabinets, added hardware and then changed out the old  hardware for brand new fabulous ones.

Hardware is the jewelry in a bathroom.  It's also a really great way to do a quick update even if you don't repaint.

The office got a makover as well.  We used all the furniture they had, added a rug and created a gallery wall for them, using the artwork she had created herself.


Here are a few before and after shots of the space.


New drapes, new pillows and a few accessories really finished this room off.

Hope your year has started off well.  I'm working on a great home right now and it is going to be about a 3 month project.  We are just now starting with the demo and will be renovating the entire home from top to bottom.  We will end with decorating the entire home with everything from a washer and dryer to knives and forks.
