The Before and ***THE AFTER***


dum de dum dum da.......

The room is lovely and full of light, however, the original layout was dark and tradtional.  Believe me this family is not dark or traditional!  They are a fun loving bunch!


TA DA.............

New taupe linen drapery panels on iron rods, that were hung as high as possible to show off the high ceiling.  Using a graphic grey fabric with a 3.5" repeat for banding was ideal. Finding a trim banding that was wide enough to make a strong visual impact was a challenge and more expensive.

                  Found the corner shelf at the Pierce Martin warehouse sale, perfect for that spot!

The homeowner's father created all the turned wooden bowls, each one is an awesome work of art.

Scott Antiques sofa table

The bench was found at the Scott Antique Market, and it was recovered in a great geometric pattern from Fabricut, we used the reverse side of the fabric for lumbar pillows in the club chairs.  Additional finds from Scotts include the twisty vine lamp, and the great sofa table.  Ikat covered chairs were custom made locally to acheive the perfect scale. I love this Kravet fabric!  They are currently using it in the Atlanta showroom on a pair of chairs, they must have copied us! HA.

I love the way this family room turned out!  I hope you agree.  This is an energetic, busy family with three beautiful girls and a hyperactive dog!  The husband even brought the girls out to ride motocycles in the mud dirt with us last winter, it was such fun!  Who said dirt is for the boys?!

Go out and have a wonderful day!



  1. Oh my goodness, it's so much brighter and prettier now. Your lamps are to die for, all of them... and i love the table behind the sofa with the basket under it, and the bowl is just such a beautiful work of art!


  2. What a gorgeous transformation. Adore the banding on the draperies - just the perfect touch, and the pillows...fabulous!! Thank you for visiting and following our blog...happily following yours ~
