Ooh, we’re thrilled to share with you a new decorating project we finished for the Clemmens family in Yukon. After seeing what we’d done for her neighbor Vi Le in our makeover for the Le/Winkeler home, Kristi reached out to see if we could give them a fresh look for their new home in the neighborhood. You *know* we like to de-brown spaces. 🙂
See the video here on how we pulled the look together and get some fun facts about the project below!
Living Room BEFORE
Living Room AFTER
We wanted this space to be both elegant and yet comfortable so we mixed and matched a lot of elements like iron, wood and upholstery with bursts of color in the red and blue. The rug grounds the room and when the top glass gets put on the table (it was missing the protectors) – then the blue bowl will tie in all the turquoise, too. Think DIFFERENT on your coffee table. While this is just gold and glass, the shape is what makes it stand out and adds a more glamorous feel to the space. Remember to add lots of style to the space with pillows! Here’s another pillow transformation we did recently for Sweet Law. In the kitchen we replaced three tall traditional stools with these low industrial modern ones from Target. Four is the perfect fit there and they don’t detract from the gorgeous kitchen, but enhance the space.
Dining Room BEFORE
Dining Room AFTER
Standouts here: The farm table is handmade by a cute couple in Norman, OK. Jill found them on Craigslist. Oatmeal dining room chairs also from Craigslist so we got them for almost half what the owner paid at Kirkland’s. Excellent condition. End chairs from TJ Maxx. We love the red/cream/blue and used TWO blues – the darker midnight blue as well as the turquoise and they blend well together throughout the open space.
We’re so pleased the clients love the space they’re in now! Special thanks to my cohort Jill Martin for making each project so fun to work on. Check out our decorating page if you’d like our help on your next home design project!
