sunroom fabrics

I had so much fun working with and picking out these fabrics for my client's sunroom and I wanted to wait until everything was finished in the space before I showed them. The fabrics worked so well together, between the brighter super cozy custom swivel chairs and the grain sack like fabric on the custom love seat and coordinating fabric on the custom pillows.

 I loved how the roman shades turned out, there are six windows all in a row so I didn't want to overwhelm the space with a very bright or busy fabric. I found this pretty fabric, it is a simple linen blend with beautiful embroidered vines throughout. I was really happy with how they turned out.

The room is such a great space that is used for an eating area on one end and an inviting sitting area on the other. The space is grounded by two of the same rugs that fill the room nicely and really bring the areas together.

Pretty guest bedroom

I've been meaning to post these pictures for some time now, actually a few months. I've been a bit side tracked and haven't shared much! I had worked on this guest bedroom during the late spring for one of my clients. She wanted the room to be pretty for when her mother stayed. The room was previously painted and the furniture was already existing, I was just picking out all the fabrics for the custom bedding.

I was so happy when it was finished - it all came out really nice.  The bedspread was quilted and looks beautiful and inviting. There is also a bed skirt that matches with the pillow shams. In fact, the fabric looked so pretty that my client decided she wanted to use it to have some valances made for the windows (we just started working on them). 

The bolster pillow came out great too. The fabric has a slight raised pattern so the flowers and vines really pop, it makes it a focal point on the bed. The duvet cover, at the end of the bed, also has a nice textured fabric on it as well.

When the window treatments are all finished I will share more pictures, hopefully it won't take me so long to post them next time!

clients dining room

For nearly 18 months I have been working with a client on a new construction home in Delaware. Since I was involved from the beginning, it included everything from room layout suggestions and paint and floor color selections to kitchen and bath design and furniture. From start to finish, it's been a great experience. Here are some previous posting on the home's progress here and here.

Now, as the project comes to completion, I am so excited to work on finishing off my clients dining room. After so much construction going on with their home, it was great to finally be able to put those finishing touches in the rooms. The panels turned out so beautiful. We choose a Robert Allen fabric and a really pretty onion ball fringe to go with the fabric. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy, and with all the beautiful white wainscoting, the navy really pops, especially now with the blue and white fabric. Also setting the whole room off is the gorgeous Schonbek chandelier chosen for the room. It really came out so pretty and classic looking.

We are finalizing all the rest of the window treatments and I can't wait to share those when they are all finished.

flower tiles

It has been a long winter, you don't need to tell anybody out here on the East Coast!  We have had snow on the ground for weeks, so spring and spring flowers seem like they will never come. I was happy to take on this small project for a client, which offered at least a glimpse of spring. This flower scene will go behind their range with a carrara marble border and matching marble field tile. I wanted to wait until they were installed to share the tiles, but thought I'd post it now and show the installed pictures later on in their brand new kitchen.
