This summer, we worked with a great couple who wanted to completely renovate their Master Bathroom and freshen up their home.  Much of their handmade wood furniture held significant sentimental value so we came up with a plan to reuse some pieces and fill in with a few new items.  Our clients had pretty traditional taste but we encouraged them to mix in transitional items to help update their abode.

The crisp and bright results made for a very happy couple!  


The Living Room was dark and dated when we first saw it.  With new crown molding, a soft paint color, tailored drapery panels, a wool area rug and reupholstered sofa, this room now feels elegant and new.  We added a beautiful pair of antique wooden transoms and a large abstract landscape painting to compliment the clients' artwork.


An existing flamestitch wingback chair was in good shape and served as a jumping off point for the Living Room color scheme.  The navy and orange fabric inspired a new navy cut velvet wingback chair, orange chinoiserie lamps and bold blue bird pillows with orange welts on the sofa.  The clients' existing wood furniture is now highlighted with a calm and neutral rug and rearranged accessories.  

The Master Bedroom was crying out for a complete overhaul!  We proposed new carpeting, crown molding, a soft green paint color and an overscaled printed fabric to add character to the room.  We kept the bed linens calm and neutral and added classic brush fringe to the pretty drapery panel edges.  A new caned headboard, painted bedside chests and glass lamps work well with the clients' existing dressers and a vintage mirror from Scott's. 


The Master Bathroom has become one of our favorite spaces in the house!  What started as a dated space with an odd layout turned into a large retreat with beautiful finishes and functionality.


Creamy wainscotting and vinyl grasscloth were added to warm up the walls and the stones selected make the bathroom serene.  We borrowed space from the Entry coat closet to make a large shower and used the same herringbone floor from the rest of the bathroom to maintain a good flow of materials.  Plenty of storage was added with a new vanity and floor to ceiling linen closet.  The clients confessed that they actually have more storage options now than they know what to do with!

We love how the weathered medicine cabinets and sculptural sconce anchor the vanity wall and define "his and hers" space at the sinks.

We also helped update the Dining Room, Entry and Den.  In the Dining Room, the walls were painted blue and a gorgeous fabric with a giant pattern was brought in for new drapery and a tailored valance.  Chevron grasscloth and a brass lantern were added to the Entry to provide a beautiful first impression and welcome guests!
