Homes are always a work in progress.  So, I thought I’d share the progress on a room that you’ve seen before.
I’m going to have to remind you how this all began, so here it is.


We totally re-vamped the fireplace, removed the brick, the beams, and used this as our inspiration for the window treatments.

(I have no idea where I pulled this image from, but would love to give credit where credit is due, so if you know, please let me know.)

Here is the window treatment plan.

This is how they should look when finished, but I’ll give you a little inside scoop into window treatments.  They are the most useful tool in transforming a space.  Take a look at another drawing showing the full window frames below.

Aside from all the notes, etc. take a look at how the window treatments are used to draw the eye up in a relatively standard height room.  Also, the treatment on the sliding door elongates the width of the doors visually. 

The client was happy to receive some vintage rockers from family, but now all of the upholstery and carpeting are beige, beige, beige.

When the client is ready, they could move to a clean line sofa in a colorful, hardworking family fabric.  Perhaps something like this from Kravet:

Great lines & super comfortable.  Then, perhaps some vibrant patterned pillows from Pottery Barn to perk up those vintage rockers?  Could be awesome…

And, a touch of red in these chunky knits, also from Pottery Barn.

 Some brackets on either side of the art behind the sofa and some white or cream accessories would also brighten things up a bit, a la Ballard Designs:
