Behind door #1 and 2

Now that the home owners have seen their new home, I can finally show it to you! I have worked on this project for 9 months and it is so much fun to see it all come together. It's like having a baby only I have to put it up for adoption because it is not actually mine. I have the stretch marks (wrinkles) and sleep deprivation to prove it. 
When they left for vacation, their study looked like this... remember?

And now...

The Study above, is covered in wall to wall blue grasscloth for texture. The hide rug and sleek shell stone mantle play off of each other. Lots of dark molding, leather and bold prints for a masculine touch.

The tweed sofa has a  textured feel and clean lines and while the octopus looks small in this photo, it is actually very large and makes a bold statement. 

Navy crocodile embossed lamps on reclaimed wood pedestal tables with navy oiled zinc tops. 

The Roost driftwood side table adds another organic element.  The orange embroidered drapes have a Moroccan vibe and soften the picture window.
Warm and cozy study... What do you think?

Now onto the formal (but not so formal) dining room. Just a few weeks ago, it looked like this...

Ann worked her magic...drum roll please!

The dining room features a wall-to-wall hand painted mural. The peacocks are made up of creams, golds, peacock blues, shades of aqua and yellow to play off of the yellow zig zag drapes from across the room. Great job Ann!

The client wanted to use family pieces for the dining furniture. It is formal, but not too formal with the aqua and white damask seats. The chandelier is made out of silver/gold glass leaves and chrome. The rug for this space has not yet arrived, but I will send pictures when it does!

Mother of pearl mirrors and mirrored buffet lamps dress up another family heirloom with a modern twist.

Here's another shot of Ann's fabulous work. The mural is illuminated by strategically placed lighting and she used a metallic paint to accent their feathers. At night, through the bay window, they almost glow. 

Don't the playful metal peacocks on the table make a fun centerpiece?

The gold and ivory chevron patterned drapes pop against the chocolate walls.
That's all for now. Stay tuned as we reveal the living spaces next! Let us know what you think! Do you like it? What is your favorite item or feature so far? We would love to hear from you!

Bye bye birdie,

This is gorgeous Hooper! I love the many shades of blue throughout the study. And the lighting on the mural is fantastic. Seriously, you are both so talented and maybe one day if you are in Atlanta you can help me give my home a facelift:). Thanks for sharing as I love reading about your projects. XO

Love the blue grasscloth! And I saw that blue leopard fabric in a fabric store here in Nashville yesterday and pondered where I could use it. You've given me an idea.

That mural is gorgeous. Who needs De Gournay chinoiserie paper when you've got a fabulous mural at I'm sure a fraction of the price.

Job extremely well done!

Completely blown away! I love everything you have done! Could you kindly provide the resource for that dining room chandelier that is making my heart race?

Tessa said...

Kim at Chattafabulous wanted to know where the chandelier came from in the dining room. It is from Regina Andrew Design and is their glass leaves chandelier. Thanks for your interest Kim, I love it too!
