Designing in Stages – Step 1

Designing in Stages – Step 1

I’ve been working with a client for several months to update her small lakeside home.  Her goal was to create cozy spaces for her along with enough eating and visiting space for when she has friends and family visit.  The facelift included a fresh coat of paint, new window treatments and 3 new furniture arrangements.  Here are the “before” pictures:

I took measurements and offered a variety of functional furniture plans and we decided on this layout:

Next came the fun part…SHOPPING!!  We used the drawing as a guide while ordering the new pieces at New England Furniture in Farmington, NH.  The only decisions we needed to make was about the fabrics and we had a color scheme in mind that would coordinate with the wall color and window treatment fabric seen below:

It would be several weeks before the furniture was due to arrive.  In the meantime, a built-in storage bench was installed/stained and the walls were painted by the awesome guys at Azer Renovations.  The customization kept going with a one of a kind table that was created to fit into the space perfectly.  Once those steps were done, we hung the window treatments and saw it all come together when the delivery arrived.  Take a look at the “after” photos:

After this project was completed, the homeowner decided to add on a 3 season porch to extend her living space.  That will come in a future post (Click Here to check it out).

This project has been such a pleasure ~ I’m so grateful that I have been able to help a wonderful person transform her home into the warm retreat that she had been dreaming of.
