Most noteworthy this weekend was a nice surprise in my Inbox from a lovely client who happens to be a talented photographer. She snapped some photos of her family room we've been working on and I wanted to share them with you.
A little background info - this is a very well traveled young family that just relocated to Chattanooga. They've lived and traveled all over the globe and have amassed a nice selection of meaningful keepsakes and family heirlooms - many of which we are working into their decor. Their design style leans very classic, light and family friendly. They're not afraid of color, and wanted their home to be a reflection of their family and their lives.
Nearly everything you see in the room above was theirs, with the exception of the drafting table against the back wall, the lamps which I sourced for them and the Asian wing chair, (which was purchased from me and reupholstered). We also reupholstered their existing sofa and love seat with a neutral velvet and had her throw pillows re-made with a mix of new fabrics. The walls were coated with Benjamin Moore's Manchester Tan for light, neutral envelope.
Just a few weeks ago we installed the photography wall so it could be seen from the new banquette in the kitchen (photos will be coming soon!). I think the photography wall is the thing they love most about the space.
The end tables are antique family pieces and the coffee table was purchased while they lived in Asia.
Everything we used to style the mantel has special meaning to this family. The oars belonged to the husband's side of the family and we hung them with jute. The brass lantern and green camping box also hold special meaning, as well as the books and pottery items. We have since added some fresh greenery to soften the look.
This is my favorite shot. I think it really speaks to my client's photography skills. Such a beautiful image!
While most of our efforts have been concentrated in the main living areas downstairs, we also added a book case in the upstairs loft area. Just last week I styled the book case for them using some of their favorite possessions.
I'm excited to share more of this special home with you as projects get completed, so please stay tuned for more!
