Dining Room Eye Candy!

This image stopped me in my tracks as I was reading through some of my fav blogs! There are so many reasons I LOVE this room! So let me start from the top down. The chandelier is the perfect mix of something big and yet still delicate. The white walls allow the furnishings and patterns to stand out against a white canvas. The french trestle farm table style and chairs are kept modern and bright with the amazing contrasting fabrics on the chairs. What about these leather seats and backs, works perfect if you have kids too! It is just the perfect combination of traditional style made fun and modern and feeling relaxed. Love all the accessories too!

Industrial Glam Office

Gently pushing clients out of their comfort zone with interior decor is one of the many reasons why individuals   look to interior designers in the first place. You may see something that you love perhaps a wall color, sofa, artwork but you are just not sure how to pull it all together and afraid of making the financial investment and not loving the final outcome. Well, decorators like myself also have to push themselves out of their comfort zones and be able to bring to life the vision the client or they may even have even if they are nervous about it. I did that with this design above. Industrial style decor is not up there on my top favorite styles out right now but I do love exposed brick walls and the some architectural elements of it, for example beams, industrial doors and windows etc. So how did I do bringing some glam into this space? I always love to hear your feedback:)
