Client Reveal: Navy Infused Living Room

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

I am SO thrilled to be showing you this living room reveal today!  Goodness, it was such a pleasure to design!  We took it from an ordinary room to a room that is infused with color and personality while still keeping a bit of sophistication.  Its now the perfect first impression for my clients home.
As soon as she let me know that she watned me to work on this one I immediately asked if she was afraid of dark walls.  She looked at me a little hesitantly and said it depends on which shade I'd suggest.  She loves any shade of blue so navy wasn't too scary for her.  I found the perect shade, in my opinion, for a wall... Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore.  She didn't hesitate and had this shade painted within a few days of me suggesting it.  What a DRAMATIC difference this made for the space!!!
She was curious if she needed to replace her sofa and accent chairs.  I hate to have clients get new big purchase items if this can be avoided so I said we could keep them and just work them into the design.  They are a great neutral fabric and adding the blue and green patterned throw pillows dressed them up in just the right way.  The seating now became an after thought.  Mission accomplished.

The room is pretty narrow so I knew a coffee table wouldn't work.  But had the idea to throw two poufs in the room.  The family moves them to where they need to kick their feet up and now this room is a relaxing space to read a book, or take a nap. ( I've got proof of the napping in this space! :)
The focal point of the room if for sure the piano wall.  This canvas art from World Market ads just the right amoung of personality to this wall.  The sconces are the perfect touch to make the wall have depth, and are so functional providing light for their piano players.




This picture wall was a blast to do!  I took some time hanging these bad boys, and it was so worth the time!  We framed some family pictures in black and white.  That way the photos dont compete with the room design at all, but adds a senimental touch to the space.

I just love the way the rug has grounded the design and plays off of every thought out detail in the space.









 Here are the befores of the room. The color wasn't a bad choice, but I just knew that a dark wall color with the white chair rail would just add the right amount of drama and sophistication to the room.  The result and finished product is perfect and the perfect first impression to the rest of the main level.  Stay tuned for next week when I reveal the foyer make over and the family room make over.
Thank you for taking the time to check out this design.  If you are intersted in my design services just send me an email Kristen@studio7interiordesign.com
I take local clients in the SLC area, and also love working with my e-design clients all over the USA.

Client Reveal: Nuetral with a Pop of Blue Family Room:

Wednesday, April 05, 2017

 Good Afternoon and Happy Wednesday!

I'm thrilled to be sharing this family room I had the pleasure designing for one of my favorite neighbors.  She called me in to help her when she got passed down this leather sofa.  It is great quality and she just needed to figure out how to make it work with her design taste.  She told me she loved some shelves I had put in another design of mine and used that as the inspiration for her own family room.
 She loves a peacful, welcoming, nuetral color palette, but also wanted to incoorporate a fun pop of a color.  We were able to accomplish just the look she was after by grounding the space with a gorgeous blue and gray vintage inspired rug.

 It was easy going from there suggesting some traditional pieces with a modern flare.
She was unsure if an ottoman/coffee table would work for her family.  I talked her into this one that can also serve as extra seating. 



 We love the way the family room now flows with the rest of her beatiful home.




 I am so pleased witht the way this room design has come together and even more pleased that my friend loves the result so much.  It was such a pleasure helping her discover her personal design taste and style.  
Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed the tour.
I have linked a few items.  Out of the respect for my client I will not be able to link all items in this design.  Thank you for understanding.

Updated Mix & Match Gallery Wall

 Happy Friday!
I am so excited to be sharing my updated gallery wall with you today!  I have loved my gallery arrangement in my living room fiercely the last few years.  I have recieved countless compliments on it, and have loved seeing the gallery walls a few of my IG followers have created to look like it.
I knew I wanted to swap out the center picture for a more spring painting, and I fell in love with this water color painted by the talented Natalie Malan.  After getting it in the frame I could see it was such a soft palette and the all black frame gallery wall was just too much for the delacate picture.
So I decided I'd attempt mixing in a few metallic frames to see how that helped.  It exceeded my expectations!  I don't know why I didnt think of doing this sooner.
The four frames spray painted in a champagne krylon paint did just the trick and softens the whole room, which I adore.
I had picked up this soft palette bird pillow from Homegood recently, and the three changes updates the room and brings in a happy, spring vibe.  Just what I was after.
Scroll through the pics and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Bedroom Update: Bedding Refresh

Sunday, February 26, 2017

 I recently tweaked a few things in my master bedroom.  I still loved the majority of my bedding, but I was getting a little tired of my teal quilt after having it for 4 years.  While searching for some quilts online I decided to give a white one a go and was so excited when I found one for half the price of the teal one.  I also updated the bedding throw pillows to refresh the look a little more and just like that the bedroom has a completely new and fresh look.  I'm in love!

 I will always be a lover of color in design, but I totally get why people are in love with a white bedding look.  Not only does it go with any color, it is a fresh, crisp and clean look.  Just what most people are after in a serene bedroom approach.

 These white throw pillows were found at TUESDAY MORNING for a killer price.  Two with the down inserts included for only $25.  Can't beat that!

The ikat lumbar pillow was found via Esty.  It ties in the curtains with the bedding perfectly. Just what I was after.
