How do we do it?...

We take a busy mantle, full of trinkets and non-related items....

and transform it into a cleaner, more polished display with a mirror much more in scale with the rest of the fireplace...

We pay attention to an awkward shape wall under the stairs and by the front door and take it from forgettable...

to a "Welcome Home" wall...

We change the vibrant green walls and Tommy Bahamas furniture...

for a much calmer palette, suited for a room where the family spends a lot of time...

We choose taupe and chocolate walls as the perfect background for some white furniture...

and rich gold chenille....

Before....

and after....

We add new surfaces where to keep a drink or a book...

and we use a mix of vintage, new...


and personal touches...

That's how we completely change the feel of a room...in a budget!

Our Customer's Family Room makeover is finally done...
and we are so glad we have these pictures to share it with all of you.
