Do You Have A Green Sofa?

I am going to guess that most people either have a green sofa or have owned a green sofa at some point in their life! Green has come and gone in interiors in the 80's and 90's and is still here in the shades of kelly green and mint and I am in love! Working with a recent client and their sage green sofa has inspired me to share these pics with you! xo

The pillows I chose are from the selection below. I will be sharing a sneak peak soon of them in my living room!

Family Room Design!

A beautiful family that live locally contacted me for some help with their family room and I was HAPPY to help! The have a challenging shape to the room and had a few things that needed to be taken into consideration? Do you notice what it may be?

The kitchen has a really nice long bar height counter top with 4 stools that pushes a bit into the family room space. The couple will be replacing the carpet with wood flooring at some point within the next year so they requested to have another carpet to layer on top of the existing one for the time being. Thinking about moving the stools in an out was a consideration with the type of rug selected. I wanted something that would not make that difficult especially as their kiddies get a little older and will want to do it themselves. The angle of the ceiling and soffit also played into the selection as well as a specific budget, another little one is on the way this week! The wall color will also stay the same for now. Designing with these types of parameters is challenging and fun at the same time. The design is coming together in stages so I should be sharing some more photos soon. But here are some of the selections that have been made together them!

Some of these selections are not a definite but we want to bring a pop of color into the room, so lavender or maybe even a tangerine or coral may be the way we go. I will keep you posted! Thanks for reading and have a great Monday!

Client Projects and Great Chairs Found!

Seeing fabric samples online and in person are soooo different! So before you make that purchase, go to local fabric shops or request swatches. Against coordinating fabrics and in certain light you may decide to readjust your choices. I have been searching for fabric for pillows for two different clients. They already have sofas so I need to present some great options. Here a couple below!

While antiquing in New Paltz, NY I stumbled upon these beauties. I snatched them up and my mind is pondering on the fabric option in the pic below. Too loud and bright????
