Family Room Before and After

So much fun to finish this project for my client just in time for Thanksgiving with their family.  We gave their family room and kitchen an update with paint, new furniture and accessories.

The fireplace was a cream stone and had such beautiful detail.  However, the detail was lost because the fireplace didn't make a grand statement, it just blended into the wall color.

We fauxed the fireplace surround a graphite gray and it now has much more grandeur. I suggested they paint their bookshelves an off white so their accessories could be showcased. Collectibles always look better against white.

They had a patterned carpet in the room already but my client wasn't too fond of it!  I found a rug that complimented it well that we  placed on top of it.  This added dramatic color and interest to the room and made my client really happy!  The leather sectional was a must because this is their TV watching room where lots of football watching goes on!
Of course you have to have reversible pillows for those that love instant change!

A seven foot mirror really added a WOW to the room! 
This console table matches the fireplace color.
I found this metal urn and painted it and then aged it.  Added some driftwood and it's a fantastic addition to the bookshelves.  Notice the wonderful cinnamon color behind the bookshelves!

Every room needs a touch of animal print.
Sorry for the TV reflection. I couldn't figure out how to turn it off!  I really tried to personalize the room so it didn't look staged! Family photos and special items were hung on the walls to make them feel surrounded by their special things.  The crosses were gifts from family and friends.

This stone was our inspiration for the color palette for the paint colors.

Adding candles in the same color scheme really adds a magic to the space.

Enjoy your weekend! 
I'll post more about their kitchen later. Wait til you see what we did with their enormous island!
