We have this client Linda. She's sweet and spunky and put complete and utter trust in our ability to update her family room, which she'll be the first to admit, hadn't been touched for 25 years. Long story short, she was ready for some major change and we gave it to her. It's fresh, clean, and classic with a hint of New England charm and hopefully she won't have to touch it for another 25 years. (Ok, 15 years at least!) We're very excited to share her before and after in which she used a Rehab Box (you can see her design board here) and a Restyle Box (can be yours too, if you're in New York / New England!). Thanks to Linda for letting us get down and dirty with some styling and photos to show off her new space!
Let's chat about the design. We all love a little wood molding here and there (and it's having a major resurgence!), but so often, it's not always done in the cleanest of ways and can be more distracting than complementary. Linda (and Mr. Linda) wanted to keep the wood accents which was more than fine with us, but to clean up the look and draw more attention to the windows, we painted the trim around the doors. We also suggested painting the built ins which now freshen up the space and complement the trim and flooring. Adding window treatments to the different sized windows tie the two together, making the room more cohesive, calm and drawing attention to their beautiful view. See the rest for yourself!
We love a good before and after and we're so thankful to Linda for allowing us to share! We have more to come and if you want to be the first to see, you can subscribe below and we'll send you an email alerting you of our latest post.
