Before/Afters Springfield Client



Quite a difference ehhh?  

I promised befores and afters for this project quite a while ago.  I'm not even sure where to start, as there was so much done.  I guess I'll start with the lighting, which was non-existent before.  It was a very large room with a ton of wasted space so I decided to use some of that space and make an entry (to the left is the front door) where there was none before.   We put a spectacular chandelier over the table to further differentiate the space.  Next, I decided there needed to be a light in the living area.  But, not just any light, a major over-sized statement.  I assured my client that it would be over a coffee table (vintage lucite and glass) so no one would be hitting their heads.  Its a showstopper for sure.

The sofa is a custom piece with Thibaut fabric from 1st Dibs.  We reupholstered the chairs (hers already,) and the daybed looked like this when I got it....
























Can you believe how well it turned out? 

Next space...the stairs...


Much better, right?  Who doesn't love a little leopard?  

The dining room was another major undertaking.    



She already had the table and chairs, but I wanted to make it a little less matchy, matchy. So, we painted the chairs black and reupholstered them in a faux white croc. Mission accomplished.  We also painted all the woodwork in Benjamin Moore's Dove White (my favorite white) to make it lighter and brighter.  Something else that makes a huge difference is the lighting.  There was only one chandelier originally.  This room is huge, as is the table, so, I decided that 2 is better than one when it came to the chandelier situation.  It makes the room feel so much more grand.  The rug was hers already and adds that "something old" feel to the space. 

So I think that covers most of it.  Hope you enjoyed the break-down as much as I enjoyed designing this space...or at least close. 

Til next time...
