Thank you so much for contributing to such a wonderful workshop last night! Because your questions and comments kept leading me to a particular client's house, I thought I'd share the before and after images with you.
Feel free to forward the link to any friends who might enjoy the transformation as well. It's a good one. Enjoy!
I painted the walls three creamy versions of white with a soft stone color for the mantel and walls surrounding the fireplace to create a subtle but grounded focal point. I brought in a dresser from the basement, moved the wing chairs and updated the slip covers.
I swapped the curved sofa with a straight one from another room. I re-styled it with luxe cream fabric upholstery, changed the back pillows to a square shape and took off the skirt so the upholstery is tight and tailored.
I painted this console with stripes to give the room a sense of humor and added citrine cut velvet upholstery to the benches.
Remember the painting I mentioned? And how I gathered all of her travel souvenirs?
(This is the sofa that I re-styled and moved to the living room. Notice how vibrant the painting is compared the rest of the room!)
Here are BEFORE pics of the powder room:
I traded the dated china cabinet for a set of block prints the daughter made in high school
The walls are painted a warm butternut squash color, the walls and creamy soft white that allows the crisp white trim to stand out. The chairs are reupholstered in the citrine cut velvet fabric.
