In the Loop

I love it when my consultation only clients keep me in the loop on their home improvements.  Most recently, I visited Towers and Moe at their first home together (I also blogged about them here).  They’d just moved in, there were boxes everywhere and they both looked frazzle dazzled.  I spent a few hours giving them suggestions and reminding them to breathe – creating a home is a process.  It takes time, I assured them.  Moe has been sending me updates on their progress ever since and I wanted to share them with you.

First let me show you the state of the den when they moved in…

The previous owners had done some kind of distressing technique on the wood panelling, but it just looked dirty.  T & M were yearning for a dark and cozy space and were about to take the leap on a hunter green or navy for in here.  I’m sure it would have been beautiful, but the more I talked to them and thought, the more I worried that it would be too dark.  This was a back of the house room and not as light filled as the front of the house spaces.  So they opted for a white out – trim and all – and then we satisfied their dark side with a black fireplace.  I think the all white unifies the open concept and patchwork feeling the room formerly had.  Take a look at their progress…

The walls are BM white base with no tint in an eggshell finish, the fireplace is French Beret – my go to black for it’s depth and chalky feel.  I suggested the Stockholm sofa from IKEA and I think they’re quite pleased with it.  The rug was one they found at PB Outlet.  They done good y’all and I can’t wait to tag along via text message for the rest of their adventures!
