Today I’m sharing some before and afters of a living room I did a while back. This client’s home is absolutely beautiful but she felt a little stuck with this room and called me for help. She already had some great pieces to work with (sofa, rug, chairs) so she just needed me to add some finishing touches to make it feel complete.
Here is the room before my client let me “do my thing”…
Now what I mean by “do my thing” is when my clients let me come into their home (usually when they are gone for the day) and let me bring in some goodies and freshen up the room. It’s my favorite thing to do for clients. My goal is to use what they already have, but then add just a few new things.
Here is how the room turned out…
So after I do my thing, I usually go home and
nervously anxiously await a response from my client and hope and pray that they like what I did. In this case, they loved it. In most cases, my clients are ecstatic with the changes. It’s fun for them to be able to just come in and be surprised. Some have compared it to feeling like Christmas morning:). I love being able to incorporate their own items and breath a little new life into furniture or decor that they thought they were tired of. There’s always a few items that end up being returned but for the most part, my clients keep the treasures I find. Never any hard feelings if they don’t!
So this is my very mini version of “Extreme Home MakeOver”. Best part of my job!!!
In case you’re curious, here is a source guide:
