Awhile ago I posted about a project I was working on for clients who wanted to completely renovate their kitchen as well as redecorate the attached family room space. The client's style preference is contemporary with a little 'glam'. I enjoyed the challenge of stepping outside my personal aesthetic and tapping into what they really wanted. 

Here are photos of the kitchen 'before'.



Here are the kitchen 'afters'.




The island is painted in Benjamin Moore's Fusion.



In the family room, the biggest task was figuring out what to do with the fireplace surround, since it's the focal point. It goes up to the pitched ceiling and needed some dimension. The client did not want a rustic look, so no stone or reclaimed wood. Ultimately, the rug inspired a similar geometric pattern that was applied with 1" x 1" trim to the sheetrock.

The raised geometric pattern being applied to the fireplace wall.



The colors for the furnishings were gray and violet. Some paint options we were considering…


We had the windows enlarged and framed all windows in both the family room and kitchen in a simple trim detail. That made a huge difference!

Here are the family room 'afters'.



The Parson's tables (one on each side of fireplace) are from Bungalow 5 and are lacquered grasscloth in white. The x-benches are from Ballard Design, with fabric we provided. They turned out great didn't they? So easy to work with them, I was really happy with the customer service. I had an actual name who knew the status of the order at all times. Would highly recommend them.



A couple of months ago I was interviewed for Luxe magazine – Pacific Northwest edition, asking me for my favorite places in Seattle. Here's the article along with a hilarious cartoon of me! 

Thank you Luxe!
