KItchen Progress

My clients kitchen is moving right along...

Remember these before shots...

Well, things have been moving right along...

(Don't panic, the fridge will have matching cabinet door fronts on it!)

We've also moved this archway towards the entry way to expand their dining room...
(The above table, chairs, and light fixture may be for me if you're interested)

And we've gotten the floors refinished in something....not so orange!

I can't wait for this Restoration Hardware table to go in their new, spacious, dining room...
Shameless Plug:  If you live in North Alabama and order something from Restoration Hardware, your furniture will be delivered by the great guys from New Latitude Movers, which is the moving and delivery company where my husband works.

 With this chandelier for a little glitz...

Progress is fun!  

Thanks for checking in!

A little at a time...

As I have journeyed into the world of being a decorator, it's been fun to see how each client relationship can be unique to fit the client's individual needs.

I have one client that found me through my blog.  She is a young newlywed.  My husband and I can relate, that at this stage in life it is tough to budget for a decorator...yet there are so many decisions to make as you start to collect the pieces that you hope will last a life time and also try to figure out the best way to arrange those faithful hand-me-downs.

Every few months she calls me to check in on her and help keep her "punch list" on track.  It's been fun watching her transform her home a little at a time.

Here is the client's home before:

After our first visit:
(new rugs, new sofa, new furniture arrangement, brought these 3 chairs that she already owned into the room to replace the red ones)

Then she found these great grey linen-look drapes from Ikea...

Way to go, girl!  Things are looking great!  Keep on truckin! 

At our last visit we met at the fabric store and selected these fun fabrics for her living area...
From left to right, these selections would be for:
grey cushion:  existing single tufted chair
tiny blue swatch:  existing sofa
cream/blue quatrefoil:  bench cushion
zig zag:  dining room chair seats
suzani:  pair of accent pillows for sofa, slip cover for cube ottoman
 velvet burnout:  center pillow on sofa

I can't wait to see how all these fabric selections look in her home.  She and her mom will be slaving away at making everything themselves.  

Maybe the next stage will be lamps and light fixtures...or some pretty things for the walls?  

If you can relate to this client, I'd love to help you get moving in the right direction in your home!  
I can also do this via email if you are outside of the Birmingham, AL area.   

Thanks for checking in!

Destruction Day!

It's Kitchen Destruction Day at my clients' home in Homewood, AL.  We've been revamping the living room piece by piece, and it has really made them want to do the same for their kitchen!

I can't wait to see how it comes together in the next few weeks!



Here's a sneak peek of some of the elements that will be in the new kitchen....  (Sorry, the colors are off.)

I'll keep you posted!
Thanks for checking in.
