colorful and modern client reveal...

Do you all remember this client from back in July? They wanted a fresh infusion of
color and modern elements, and were on board for using a mix of high and low.
We included some furniture and accessories they had, new unique custom pieces, Craigslist
 and thrifted finds, Ikea, and they were awesome at knocking out diys I suggested.


We used Benjamin Moore Cloud White on the walls and trim throughout, and in order to
 take advantage of the beautiful view from their golf course lot decided on a clean look
 of uncovered windows.

Flanking the fireplace we layered mirrors, the vintage lamps were a thrifting find. 
They chose a pair of love seats facing each other and we re-upholstered a tufted ottoman
in a luxurious raspberry velvet. The leopard X benches were one of our diys.


 Remember their amazing Sputnik? It's such statement, it extends from the 20 foot
 ceiling, and is visible throughout the first and second floors. We used their existing dining
table above, they did a great job painting it with Annie Sloan's Barcelona. 
(I had forgotten until seeing it now, but I think some gold highlights would be pretty on the
 raised detail).  We had the Parson chairs above reupholstered in the orange geometric and
used the ghost chairs previously in their kitchen. We loved how the rug brought in the pink
 and blue from the living room. 

We plan on trimming out the bookcases for a custom built in look. 


We debated how much to do to the kitchen since they're hoping to do a remodel in the near
 future. Although it's far from their ideal, I always hate to suggest spending much if you're
 going to rip it out soon. We came up with a Roman shade, a new rug, an awesome fixture,
new barstools, and save for the remodel.  


They had great basics to work with, the gray sofa, love seat and rug,
we added a few new pillows and the custom ottoman was a one-of-a-kind
piece that was worth the splurge. It's super functional, all the toys
 go inside and it's soft and cushy construction and pattern are baby friendly. 
And, it gives the room a fun dose of pizzazz. 

I loved those felted taxidermy sheep and the open frames were a fun way to 
give them a little presence. 


One more amazing diy the Mister they completed when we were crunched for time. 
Do you recognize this pendant? Hours of spray painting each little flower and stem, 
and then the assembly! It gorgeous and looks great with the Sputnik across the way.

It makes me want to ditch all my neutrals! :)

Thanks so much to my awesome clients,
it was truly a pleasure and couldn't have been more fun!

WOW! What an amazing job you did, Pam. I love the modern feel and the fact that you accomplished it while still keeping the rooms so welcoming. I especially love the silhouette of the blue chairs in the living room, the cool ottoman in the family room, orange fabric and table in the dining room...A design hole-in-one for you!

Wowzy. What a transformation from all the neutral to all the bright colors. Definitely a beautiful redo. Very inviting and fresh. Ana

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

The power of paint and color for sure. So many great touches, but the stair transformation has the most impact for me. Putting shelve in the area where the armoire was is also huge. Great job.

Dawn from Camano Island said...

Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell said...

All so beautiful!!! I love both of those plush and both great statements.

Julia@Cuckoo4Design said...

This is beyond awesome. There are so many things that I love and want for my home. On the top of the list is the sputnik chandelier which I've said before. I don't think i will ever find one that I can afford though :( Love the West Elm rug, the gorgeous vintage lamps, the leopard x-benches. I want it all for my own home. Such a great space!

pam {simple details} said...

Thanks everyone! Dawn - the felted sheep were accessories they already owned. Debby - yes, the pendant light is the Maskros from Ikea.

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Seeing all the projects, finished and together is many great projects and features....and they all work so well together......Wow

Jen (House of Ruby Jean) said...

It looks amazing!!! Love it all!!

Tania Pelletier said...

So rich looking! I love it! and I WANT some of those felted taxidermy!


Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

I am having a hard time even beginning to pick which of your great design choices is my favorite. It could be that you told them to uncover the windows...(fabulous), or the soon-to-be built-in in the dining room niche. It already looks a million times better. Or the frames around the animal heads. All the little details really make a difference! Awesome job!!!!! said...

ooh la la!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Gosh Pam, the colors, I love them!! They totally brought this space to life, and have me rethinking my love of neutrals too! You did an amazing job walking them through all of this, it can be so overwhelming to bring a whole house together and make it represent the people who live there, and this home has so much personality and flair now!! You're amazing!!!!!!

Vel Criste said...

You guys did an amazing job with this home!!!! Love the striped lamps and the layering of pillows, so lush and comfy! I also love the Dining room (have the same ghost chairs myself), that lighting is just gorgeous!!! Nothing I would change Pam!

Dwellings by DeVore said...

love all those bright colors and that light fixture is amazing! What fun clients!

Brenda said...

Love the dining table and recovered chairs. What a transformation!

decordelirium said...

Job well done Pam. Beautiful! Love all of the color and modern accents. Are the layered mirrors the Songe from Ikea and Martha Stewart from Home Depot by any chance?


Sew a Fine Seam said...

Lovely! Great makeover! I love that stairway too!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

You are a decorator of all trades! This is such a perfectly-eclectic home! I'm dying over that sputnik chandy...I want one! I'm glad your clients were game for all of your marvelous ideas!

Unknown said...

Wow Pam!!!! So impressed with this make-over.... Love the bold colors and fabulous DIY's like the painted table and the bookcases in the nook. The pops of color are fun and having an overall neutral base is such a great foundation for potential change in the future. You have a fabulous eye and creative mind and this space reflects that!

Crystal said...

Everything looks beautiful. I love color!

Kim said...

Gorgeously done!! Love the vintage lamps, and the finials on the staircase! xo

Andrea said...

Wow, Pam, I'm am in awe! I love all the color. And I love that the walls are neutral. I know how much time must have gone into this project and I'm sure your clients are thrilled. Great job!

Michelle said...

Did your clients buy the sheep heads or did they DIY those? So cute for a kid's playroom!

Awesome job! I love every detail and I'm sure your clients did too. Great colors and how they flow from room to room. Loved it.
