A client wanted to update her French Country home by adding some new fabrics, rugs, details and some distinct pieces. I happily obliged. Her French sofa was very pretty, but the fabric was worn and it needed a facelift. I had it reupholstered in an ivory linen and added a gray linen stripe to give it a more modern look. The cowhide, new lamps, pillows and botanicals breathed new life into the space.
By mixing in her current accessories with new pieces, I added more layers, texture and pretty shiny things (always a must).

I love the details on every surface. Speaking of details.... I asked Ann to paint a "simple" design that I had concocted for the kitchen floor...
Ann knew "simple" is something I don't do well, but she certainly rose to the challenge. Check out this gorgeous floor!
The hardwood floors were worn and tired. The lighting was mismatched created a strange flow to the kitchen. I changed out the lighting and placement by adding wood bead pendants.
Of course, once the kitchen got a new look... it was on to the dining room.
I kept her dining table and chairs and added wallpaper, new lighting and a painted ceiling.
And finally, her entry got a new look from Soundside Carpentry with this antique newel post and custom pickets. The new carpet is the icing on the cake for this completed project.
Before, it was a little too rustic for the space. It now looks clean and fresh with a touch of the "old" to tie in with the rest of the house.
Stay tuned for more from this home, coming up soon!
