client living room transformation

I recently worked with a client in Dartmouth, MA on transforming their family room and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  Wanna take a peak?  Please excuse my terrible BEFORE photos.  It was nighttime and my clients were in the process of building the barn wood TV nook on the right, hence the chaos.


Pink slipcover sectional, dark blinds, slightly coastal decor.


Their family room is open to the kitchen and it’s the room they spend the most time in.  They wanted a space that was polished but laid-back and durable enough to handle kids and pets.

Here is the AFTER…



We lowered and simplified the fireplace mantel with a single, stained piece of wood.




The styling is still in progress but it’s a big change, right?  A huge thank you to my client for giving me a chance and trusting me.  And apologies to her husband who really, really wanted a huge leather sectional and cow hide ottoman….and did not get them.  😉
