Happy Monday, my blog family. I’m so happy that we have been getting more Summer-like weather although it becomes a bit more distracting when trying to get work done.
Anyways, I wanted to share with ya’ll some client before/after photos. I worked on this client probably close to a year ago. I gave a bit of an update back in September with this post but I finally got some more photos.
The main issue we were having was the amount of space for the size of furniture he was trying to bring in. As you can see in the before photo, everything was oversized and the colors were so dark. It would be more fitting up in the mountains which is where he used to live but now he lives blocks from the beach. So we did on accent wall with the sage green and brought in all new furniture. The mirror allow the light to bounce around and keep the furniture a bit lower brings more spaciousness to this apartment.
I really love the way the rust color of the ottomans works with the grey sofa and sage walls.
The bedroom was another eyesore to begin with. The space is so tiny. I was challenged because you always want to have equal space on both sides of the bed but he had 2 doors. One that led into the bedroom and the other into the bathroom so we kept the same layout and just chose different furniture and coloring. We chose an earthy color for the accent wall. I like to use the walls that are least obstructed as accent walls (no windows or doors). We also brought in brighter and lighter linens for the bedding.
Here’s another view of the bedroom. Storage was super tight so we brought in a wardrobe cabinet for his clothing.
Here are the larger formats for the before shots:
There are of course things I wish I could still do. Like add a rug and decorative pillows in the living room and some more layered bedding in the bedroom with pillows and different plants but I’d say we have come a long way from where we started.
With that, I’m so grateful for the passion, excitement and willingness of my clients. Can’t wait to share more client work!
