new client project

Hi friends, yesterday was our first day back to school and since I wasn't the 
best at implementing a gradual transition it was a rude awakening! 
 Call me crazy, but I do look forward to getting back in the routine of getting an
 extra early start to the day and fitting in time to exercise when it's nice and cool.   

I haven't shared this family room project yet, but it's coming together thanks to
 some lucky Craigslist finds. :)  
We're updating the lower level family room used mainly by teens and their friends
for tv watching and lounging. They requested a comfortable space where they could
 put their feet up but their parents didn't want to sacrifice style as the kids are almost 
out of the nest. Here's where we're at so far...

Inspiration fabrics ~ 
You might recognize the black and taupe Greek Key we used for their One Room
 Challenge Master Bedroom makeover. We won't be repeating that particular print.  

We just scored this vintage chair with great nailhead and caster details for $40,
and even luckier, the color is perfect with our inspiration fabrics and won't need

Another Craigslist find was this fabulous Chinoiserie style dresser, which will get a
makeover in a bold color to keep the traditional pieces hip and youthful.
 Maybe eggplant or a vivid burgundy with gold hardware? 
(It was all I could do not to keep this one!) 


We chose a comfortable deep Pottery Barn sectional after the younger clients nixed
 the Ikea Ektorp sectional because it wasn't deep enough for lounging. :)
This trunk style table made from vintage doors from India might be a contender for
 our coffee table. I have my eye out for something old and rustic ~ they can put their feet
 up and again it keeps the traditional pieces from being too stuffy.  

We'll incorporate some quirky artwork for a fun unpredictable vibe.
I'm going to suggest we let the kids choose. :)  

We're clipping along so the reveal should be soon.

I love what you are putting together here, Pam. How fun for the teens, and choosing the artwork will be an adventure for them :) That trunk is great, and the thought of eggplant on the dresser is just so good!!!

Thanks Amanda! We're picky about upholstered Craigslist finds and will have it professionally cleaned.
