Before & After...continued.
BEFORE: Bed centered across the windows. Tall chest of drawers is hidden flat into the corner. Expected placement of artwork, drab carpet.
AFTER: Added period style ceiling fixture. Rearranged tall chest of drawers and bureau. Brought in chair and ottoman to create comfortable sitting/dressing area.
BEFORE: What do you do with three identical sofas? First, take one of them out of the equation. Focus on traffic and flow. Furniture should engage the architecture - not exclude or discriminate.
AFTER: That third sofa is now back to back with another - problem solved. The library now creates a room within a room. Book wall was styled with artwork and accessories. Photo by Spacecrafting.com
BEFORE: Space is divided in two - gives the illusion of small sitting areas in a larger room - or just small spaces period. Seems like furniture is mad at each other - nobody is talking.
AFTER: Added 9x18 navy carpet, round chevron ottoman, and more books in the bookcase. Furniture is happier! Great conversation, good mix of personalities, and everyone is happier.
BEFORE: Living room. New homeowner painted the walls. Refinished the hardwood floors. Purchased a sofa, leather chair, TV and then stopped.
AFTER: 9:00 - Quick assessment and mental notes. 9:40 - arrived at Homegoods. 11:30 - back at the house. 1:00 - Done. Really quick. Really affordable. Really fabulous.
BEFORE: Sectional bullied into the corner. Artwork without an hierarchical order. Apologetic sized area rug. Room lacks confidence, grace, sophistication.
AFTER: Sectional turns into a sofa. 8x10 gray shag rug replaced smaller option. Accent chair joins the party and rounds out the arrangement. Accessories, proper light distribution. Done.
BEFORE: Looking for a Mid-Century Condominium? This is what you can have if you're willing to do a little updating.
AFTER: Go from Ho-hum to Ho-ho-ho.
