So far my goal to post more often is not working...okay, eye surgery (no more glasses soon!), Charleston deadline, 6 new sofas and accompanying chairs to be merchandised, tables, mirrors, accessories...Bucks County Designer House coming soon, loads of fundraising baking...I feel somewhat justified. But, I still am disappointed.
Almost a month ago, I made a quick weekend visit to my daughter's in Charlotte and took with me some fun selections to complete an accessory call for a client while I was there. It had been about 10 years I would say since I last did her foyer and family room mantle and as you can imagine, it was time for a fresh approach!
This was the result;
|Family room "before" mantle. It was really current so many years ago! Hey, it happens. As you know, I am in the process of updating my entire main level! I had some ideas to reuse some of the elements.|
|This was the new design. The lamp was replaced with this hip one, larger, yet narrow enough for the table. I added succulents and after this photo I recovered the books with document paper to neutralize the color.|
The expense wasn't tremendous and other than a nine hour drive, easily accomplished!
Accessory calls are one of the most popular services I offer. You can book a "House Call" as we deem it, or bring your own photos in on your iPhone with a few pertinent measurements. I will lay it out for you on one of my store surfaces. Take your own photo , go home and recreate it!
Look! Look! Oh Look! (this happens to be a favorite piece of art at my home!)
Come in, or you can book an email critique as well. The immediate gratification is tremendous! Be it a mantle, office, kitchen or foyer...it's pure magic.
