I worked on a casual arts and crafts style home last weekend in Hendersonville (about 1 1/2 hours from where I live).
It was one of those jobs that reminds me why I do what I do.
Love love love jobs like that.
Most of the issues the homeowners were having was not knowing where to start.
They had attempted several accent walls, but quickly decided that was not the look they were going for.
After meeting with them for 3 hours about a month ago, I put together a simple plan of attack.
Unify the spaces with one paint color, and add a fun color to the exterior door.
Remove excess furniture that made the rooms seem small.
Add fun inexpensive accents and incorporate as many family photos as possible.
Re-purpose the “formal” dining room which the owners never used.
And of course all this had to be done within their budget.
Dining room- before
“Dining room”- after
Blank wall in living room- before
Office area- after
I also “fluffed” several other areas in the home.
Overall, it was a simple job that brought a lot of satisfaction to me and my clients.
And most importantly it made better use of all their spaces.
