A few details revealed from a recent furniture installation of a Northern California new modern home.

Last week the furnishings were delivered for a project I've been working on for several months. All the big items have been held at a receiver until most of the pieces were ready and construction was complete. I love install day, but at the same time, there are always a few butterflies. This project has been one of my all time favorites to work on for many reasons. For one, my adorable sweet clients were so fun and trusting it made my job a pleasure. I would literally show them a piece and they would respond with "We LOVE it!" I didn't have to show them a million things, they knew that what I presented had been thought out, compared against many other possibilities, and was what I felt was the best choice. In the end, I couldn't be happier with how this project turned out. And I think they feel the same 🙂

In the days before an install, I shop for smaller pieces – the cream on the top that makes everything look and feel finished. I took some photos from one of my stops…


Accessory shopping!


Several car loads later, I am ready to meet the delivery truck and start arranging furniture and style bookshelves, tables and countertops!


Family heirloom chairs, refreshed with high gloss white paint, beautiful stain resistant Galbraith & Paul fabric and polished chrome nail heads. A completely new modern look – perfect for this young family.


Remember these brushed brass pulls I mentioned here? They look fantastic against the creamy pale gray Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray cabinets.


They look equally gorgeous against the darker gray island which is painted in one of my favorite grays – Ben Moore Galveston (my bathroom vanities and Gwyneth's kitchen cabinets are painted this color).


The countertops on the perimeter cabinets is soapstone and on the island it's Caeserstone Frosty Carrina. The Morrocan style tile is from here.

I hope you all have a wonderful week! Only 3.5 more days til the weekend!!!
