a new project

this morning we dropped a few things of at a client's lovely townhouse, and i snapped a few pics to show you how the project shaped up.  granted these are just quick shots, no styling, bad lighting, iphone pics but i'm proud of what we accomplished working together.  we're not all the way there, but we're getting close!

the clients moved from nyc to nc, and rented a townhouse for the year.  they had a baby on the way and were eager to make the new digs feel like a home.  we didn't want to break the bank since they were renting, but we did have the whole place to furnish, so we worked around a couple of things that they brought down with them and selected new pieces - a mix of catalog finds, craigslist scores, furbish items and local finds.  we were lucky they had a ton of great art to fill the walls, and most importantly, they were a dream to work with - trusting, excited, sweet as they could be, and always bright and bubbly, plus she gave birth to a sweet little girl during the process!

we did a gray and white stripe in the entry way, with a fun upholstered chair, and a chest from bungalow 5.  (ignore the wood table and lamp - on the way out!)

we found the amazing lamps on etsy, and built around the schumacher fabric, using stools in the same print, and coordinating with lots of fun furbish pillows. the chairs are vintage with new upholstery, the asian console is ballard, mirror from horchow, and artwork is keila's

we found a great duncan phyfe table on craigslist, and paired it with overstock chairs, vintage wingbacks reupholstered in a silk ikat, a new red lacquer sideboard, and a wool rug from furbish. drapes are pottery barn ivory silk

 eloise's nursery is such a happy place - i didn't have a lot of light in these photos but it's a bright, fun spot for the cutest little girl. custom zig zag curtains from furbish, custom crib bedding, rug from home decorators, mobile from etsy, floor lamp west elm

the master bedroom has major wow-factor with the custom huge ikat headboard. mirrored desks are west elm, lamps and pillows from furbish, vintage wingchairs newly upholstered from furb, and throw from anthropologie.

 in the kitchen and adjoining sunroom, we painted the ceiling a bright turquoise, and used that same color on a vintage set of chairs we reupholstered with leopard print. the black and white rug under the tulip table is flor tiles, the floral rug is anthropologie, sofa was one the clients had that we zhushed up with some furbish pillows. desk is ikea and lamp is furbish

in the guest room, we started with a new christopher farr fabric headboard, and flanked it with bungalow 5 nightstands and furbish lamps.  the rug is west elm, and the dresser is a plain piece the client had we doctored up by adding overlays and painting.  the happy suzani chair in the corner ties it all together.

YUM to all! James - do you know where that diamond natural fiber rug is from? dying for something like that, but so many of them look gross. that one is awesome!

it's home decorator's zig zag chenille - i use it all the time. super soft and inexpensive

Nicole said...

Love everything! As someone who moved last year and is renting a townhouse, this gives me hope. I keep putting off decorating b/c the place "isn't mine", but you have totally inspired me. If only my townhouse was in NC and not MN...

Lisa Lilienthal said...

Jamie, it's all DIVINE! the sofa in the living room ... source?

I am so grateful for the rug sourcing- the whole house looks amazing, and I think the entry/living room is my favorite. Those dining host/hostess chairs look familiar-- turned out amazing!!

I love it, especially the turquoise ceiling! What color is that?? Great post!

Scooter Couple said...

I'd love to find out what the gray paint colors are you used in the LR, DR, and nursery/little girl's room. I've been trying to find the right one for my little girl's room and it's proving to be more difficult than I thought.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
