I always think it’s really fun when I can give you an inside look at some of the behind-the-scenes phases a design project moves through before it comes to life in someone’s home.
And since I recently revealed the before-and-after photos of my own home (the one I just moved from) when I gave everything a MAJOR freshen-up for Ronda Carman’s book, Designers at Home, I thought you might also like to see an inspiration board I created while dreaming up what my Formal Living Room could look like if the color palette was expanded to incorporate the inspiration pieces I told you about in my photostyling post from July!. The inspiration colors on the board are from the Sherwin-Williams “Intrinsic” palette. Sherwin-Williams describes this palette as driven by “embracing and preserving tradition, culture and design, while bringing in new influences.” Right up my alley, don’t you think?!
First, let me remind you how the room was styled to begin with:
And now have a look at the vision board that spurred my palette transformation!
You can really feel the fashion inspiration vibe, right?
1. Lee Industries skirted swivel chairs, covered in Schumacher’s Oiseaux et Fleurs pattern 2. Punches of pool blues in accessory choices 3. Barclay Butera Home wing chairs 4. Custom Rug from New River Artisans 5. Christopher Spitzmiller Lamps 6. Jamie Drake Stripe for Schumacher 7. Bungalow 5 Sunburst Mirror
And now for the “After”! You’ve seen this updated, re-imagined take on this space. How does seeing the vision board change your impression of the space? Did I capture the mood?
As I mentioned, this palette really gives the room a more exciting and playful attitude, and I just love it!
