One Room Challenge Part V

by Nicki and Teresa on April 30, 2015

 Remember what this space started out to be?

Well, it’s definitely looking better-wouldn’t you say?!  

This week, the chairs have arrived and they are done in KRAVET DENMAN CLAY  and CRYPTON SKY LINEN FABRIC. Still missing the table though!  Hopefully it will be here for the reveal next week…fingers crossed!  

We began to hang some of our clients art work, but we’re puzzled  on whether we should move the buffet to the back wall as well as how we will style the buffet in the end.

Looking also for a mirror to use on the walls of the dining room like this one The Parsons Round Mirror Bone Inlay from WEST ELM.

And oh yes, we’re still waiting on the table to be finished.

One Room Challenge Part IV: Making Progress

by Nicki and Teresa on April 23, 2015

Welcome back everyone!

We are finally making progress! This week (as you can see in the picture below) we’re having a bit more help- the installer and seamstress are working hard in this dining room area to create our vision.  We chose the Lacefield Designs Malta Apricot for the window curtains and we sore so excited with this decision for the room.

One Room Challenge Part III: Out With the Old

by Nicki and Teresa on April 16, 2015

In case you missed last weeks post you can click here to view.

Welcome back everyone! We welcome you again to our journey on the One Room Challenge  Part III: Out With The Old.  

 The chandelier from Worlds Away was installed! It’s all coming together.

For this week, we were on a serious mission…

Our mission was to give the dining room table an update to make it as visually pleasing as possible.  And what better place to get that job done than Charleston Finishing?! Specializing in top-of-the line custom finishes and antique furniture repair and giving used furniture a new life.

At first, our client had wanted for us to keep the china cabinet (that was located in the corner of the dining room). But with a little bit of persuasion,  and starting to see the dining room looking fresh the client elected to look at new options instead.

Good furniture arrangement is the secret to making a room look its best. Yet, most people struggle with what goes where. Who among us has not stood at the doorway to a room in your home and wondered, “What’s wrong with this room?” We may sense that it is disjointed or awkward, but we’re not sure why…well every room needs something big that the eye goes to, something that gives a message of comfort and quality. In that case, our new mission was to replace the space where the china cabinet had originally been placed, and incorporate something cool, trendy, homey, and still provide the practicality of needed storage. A buffet will allow lamps and art to be featured and it will be the first thing people see when entering the front door.

Make sure you stay tuned for next Thursday at 7pm and see the buffet table as well as all the other fabulous furnishings that we have picked out start to come to life! 

Here’s a little sneak peak…

One Room Challenge Part II: Inspired By Art

by Nicki and Teresa on April 9, 2015

Welcome back everyone! We welcome you again to our journey on the One Room Challenge  part II: Inspired By Art With this dining room remodeling makeover and see how this room evolves. And in case you missed (or forgot) last weeks post-here’s a little refresher for ya: 

~Our fabulous client has asked us to redecorate her dining room area.  She doesn’t know how she wants to change the room, so currently it is just being used as storage. Our client requested that it to be a “grown up space”  where she can have her whole family for Thanksgiving.  She has a lot of pieces of art that she wants to incorporate, but she doesn’t know how or if this is the right space for placement.~

Now that you’re caught up-This week our client has fabulous art work and want to see if we can somehow put it to use:

  The art work that has been collected over time is the inspiration for the color scheme.    The dining room is the first room you see when you walk into the house and so we are choosing a color scheme that will pull everything together.

When decorating a space we like to think of the 60-30-10 rule: Divide the colors in the space into components of 60 percent of a dominant color, 30 percent of a secondary color and 10 percent of an accent color. The walls will most likely be the majority, the upholstery would represent the secondary color and accessories. The colors are properly balanced and there is a shot of color (the 10 percent color) for interest. Since the art work was very colorful we didn’t want the room to end up being “too loud” so to tone it down, we used the Aiken Ivory DCR002 from Sherwin Williams– a neutral wall paint color.

 We are off and running with our color scheme- using five of  Lacefield Designs fabrics: Matlo Apricot, Stone Linen, Trevi Apricot, Kai Apricot,  and Isla Apricot.

We are also  incorporating a silver leaf Greek key pendant light Nova S Chandelier from World’s Away
