It is always exciting to see the transformation that takes place with a home renovation project and nothing makes this more evident than seeing the “before” and “after” photos. I think remodeling is a testament to the true value of hiring professionals, whether they are designers, architects or other consultants. There are so many choices of product and design available and professional consultants help bring all your ideas to fruition!
It was exactly this time of year in 2006 when I started one such renovation. I had the opportunity to reminisce about this project and others last week when I received some exciting news… … …
Last week I was approached with the amazing honor of being the featured designer in the High Point Furniture Market showroom of my favorite custom rug company, New River Artisans, for the upcoming Fall Show. This is a huge compliment to my work, as New River has worked with many talented and nationally recognized designers from all over the country including the amazing Thomas Pheasant of Baker Furniture fame, Geoffrey Bradfield and many more.
While I was reviewing many of my past projects, specificiallt ones where I had incorporated rugs from New River, I began reminiscing about one project in particular that I think was especially successful. It is traditional and classic in its style but was redecorated in a fresh and clean way. When re-designing the interiors, I paid special attention to the colonial architectural style of the home that was built in the 1930’s. Still I wanted to ensure that the home was a perfect compliment to the young family with 3 teenage daughters and would be a great atmosphere for entertaining friends and family.
Take a look and see if you agree that the renovation was a great success! And take special note of the gorgeous geometric patterned rug in the redesigned den, created for me by New River Artisans. I hope all of you visiting the New River Showroom at Fall Market will enjoy seeing this and other beautiful homes where I had the pleasure of using New Rivers’ amazing carpets!!
