What We’re Working on Wednesday
Come with me and let me show you what we’ve been working on this week!
We’re at a client’s home for the install of their incredibly colourful living room and sophisticated dining room with sitting area.
With gorgeous drapery to be installed as well, it’s going to be a busy afternoon.
If you saw my previous WWWOW post, the piece of artwork above will look familiar to you.
We used this single piece of art that belonged to my client’s mother to pull together a colour palette and be our inspiration for all these room designs.
Having a fabulous jumping-off point like this piece of artwork is one of the best ways to create a colour palette.
Watch our video to see just what an install day involves and how we brought our vision for these spaces to life for our wonderful Burlington clients.
First, we take a look at the sitting area that is adjacent to the dining room.
We are still waiting for some pieces but you can start to see how it will look when completed.
The drapery is up and two beautiful chairs, with fabric that is as soft as butter, are in place.
And how about that ottoman?
It’s important to remember when covering furniture in a fabric, such as this amazing Lotus Spice from Kravet that we used on the ottoman, to discuss with your workroom about what part of the pattern you want to show.
Moving into the living room we see what it looked like when we first met with our client.
The BIG Reveal; Coloruful living room & gorgeous drapery
This is my favourite part of this living room reno. Absolutely love this fabric by JF.
We chose to use a ceiling-mounted rod with end caps, keeping it very neat and tidy.
We want the fabric to be front and centre and this style of hanging allows that perfectly.
Repeating the black and white speckled pattern from the wallpaper in the drapes was ideal.
And the custom-made pillows with the brilliant coloured birds tie in so beautifully.
Such a bright and cheerful space.
And although there is a tonne of colour the room itself is painted a neutral, Pale Oak by Benjamin Moore.
It’s very possible to add brilliant colour to a neutral space and this project is a great example of that.
What a day it was. Glad you could join us and experience a little of what it’s like on install day.
