Before and After ...

Thanks for hanging in there for me ... we had an amazing Spring Break with our kids ... more to come on Friday!!

In the meantime ... Here's a "Small Space" Before and After!  Sometimes we just need a little push in the right direction.  This young family had a room that they just couldn't define ... then they opted for a tv room.  Where they could gather in a cozy spot ... and enjoy a favorite movie!


Bare Walls, Rug too small,  and no window treatments left the room cold and uninviting.  We kept the wall color ... it is warm and cheerful.


Installation Day:

New Rug Comes In ...


Duralee fabrics found in an "overstock" fabric store at a great price!

I am currently loving Roman Shades flanked by drapery panels.  Whether they are fabric or woven, they finish the look.  The "faux" shade above the French Doors takes away the blank space and draws your eye up.  This trick coupled with a larger rug makes the room feel so much bigger.  

Addition of a "new" Relic piece of furniture and Chair ...

The Finishing Touches ... all from Ballard.  Mirror and clock to be layered on the relic piece of furniture along with the lamp.  The Bird Art on the wall beside the French Doors.

There is an urge to put small pieces in a small room ... but in fact, that makes the space feel even smaller ... so go Big! ... not oversized, jut Big!
