{Before & After} Client Sitting Room

My heart was overflowing with joy when these images popped into my inbox last week! A while back I blogged about an e-design I did for the sweetest client, Carolyn.  She wanted to update her living room into a sitting room/library of sorts.  Carolyn has been keeping me updated on her progress ever since we finished her inspiration board! 
To take us through the design stages, here is the before, room we used as inspiration, and the after:



After seeing her space and learning about the look she was going for {she sent me the photo of the living room above via Live Creating Yourself blog} 
I came up with this design plan:
And that design plan shortly became this comfortable and totally chic little sitting room...


 
Caitlin Wilson Textile pillow is front and center...be still my heart.

And that right there, friends, is why I love interior design. What a joy it is to see a design plan collide with real life and spill out in our homes :)


Didn't Carolyn do a FAB job putting the room together?! What's your favorite part?


If you're interested in my e-design services, I'd be happy to work with you! Take a look at my e-design page and email me for more information and pricing at michaelawarner90@gmail.com


Have a beautiful weekend!
Love,

PS. Shortly I will be in search of person or family in the Bay Area, California who would be willing to let me design a room in their home {design services free of charge}. The client will only need to be willing to make the changes and put the money into the space. A more informative blog post will follow soon, but if you are interested please email me :)  Design process would be happening over the summer of 2012.

  24. I love the mixture of the soft grays and the wood tones. It seems to be the happy medium between dark and light. Those mirrors to the side of the fireplace are gorgeous. The pops of pink just make the space. Both of you pulled off this room with grace!

    Also if you have the time I would appreciate if you would stop by my blog and help me with a boot dilemma since you have such cute ones.
