St. Charles Living Room
St. Charles Living Room

A decorating project. All furniture choices, colors and accessories were the list of deliverables in this room. A soft gray palette with pops of yellow say today but echo to yesteryear. The painting is a Carl Mattison original painted for the homeowners. ​I think of the style of the room as "Modern Gatsby", my favorite style to work in.

A pop of yellow run behind the bookcases really helps them to stand out. Randomly placed mirrors on the wall make it appear as if they have been added over time. This shot was before the tile on the fireplace was replaced.​

Oh that fireplace!
Oh that fireplace!

The fireplace was worn and tired. The tile was dark. This young family is fresh and vibrant and the tile should be also. Large marble tiles and a light gray wall really update this focal point of the room.

The homeowner' needed a cozy spot to relax. They also needed kid friendly surfaces. These cushions, while white, are removable and washable and the wood furniture is strong enough to withstand any kid. The large metal 'R; echoes to the family's last name and is high enough so that young children cannot reach it and get hurt.

The master bedroom had a very intimate color that needed some punch. A velvet sofa and kitchy wall art really draws you in!​

The 9 year old girl loved to read. So, a book style headboard customized with her name in the title was the answer to make her room really HER room! ​

This home was in dire need of an update. When it came up for sale it simply had to be done. New colors, fencing, some cedar shake and a fully renovated interior rounded out the remodel.

A simple pivot mirror, higher than "usual" beadboard and a crisp pedestal sink add a vintage touch to a simple hall bath.​

The master bathroom was originally a bedroom. Staying with a classic look was important and the large space allowed for the free-standing sink and darker walls.​
