Before and After ~ E-Design Living Room Makeover Reveal

*We currently have a few spots left this month for new online design plan projects. Please click here for more information. 

Welcome to Day 10 of my 31 Days of Design Series. Today's post is especially exciting because not only do I get to share a recent design project with you, but I also get to show you before and after photos of the actual space. The pictures were taken by my client and they are a great example of the results of my custom e-design services. 

This Living Room belongs to a repeat client of mine, Liz. Liz lives in this home with her young family and came to us looking for a casual, family friendly, traditional design that depicts warmth and comfort as much as it does style. 

Here is what the space looked like when Liz came to us for a makeover...




After getting to know Liz's family, learning about the space itself, putting a pulse on her style preferences, and discussing their budget for the living room makeover, we got to work creating a custom design plan for Liz to follow.

Take a look...

Once I delivered the plan, Liz and her family got to work right away implementing the new design. The other day, Liz sent me an update letting me know her living room makeover is almost complete (all except the window treatments and the fireplace makeover). She also sent me a few photos of the space so I could see how it's all coming together. 

 Before I show you what the room looks like now, take one more look at the "Before" pic...


And here is what it looks like now...


As we speak, I'm working with Liz on a very exciting kitchen makeover. We're also conspiring to make over the fireplace and add window treatments in her living room (the room that is featured in this post). So, stay tuned, more to come from Liz's home! For a complete list of the projects featured in my 31 Days of Design Series, please click here.

A Gorgeous Guest Room and Family Computer Area In One Small Space

*We have a few spots left this month for new e-design projects! Please click here for more information. 

Welcome to Day 9 of my 31 Days of Design Series. Today, I'd like to share a Guest Bedroom that I recently designed. The space belongs to a young family that came to me looking for an  E-Design Plan to help them make the most out of an extra room. They wanted the space to serve two purposes. First and foremost, they wanted it to be an inviting, comfortable, stylish Guest Room and second they wanted to incorporate a desk/computer area for the family to use on a daily basis. 

After getting to know the family, learning about their style preferences, budget and lifestyle, I created a complete design plan for them to follow.

Here it is...

(Product sources listed at the end of this post). 

This was one of three rooms I had the honor of designing for this wonderful family. I'll be back in a few days to show you the other two spaces! For now, back to the design studio. To see all of the designs featured in my 31 Days of Design Series, please click here.

An Adorable Halloween Party Planned In Less Than Five Minutes

This is the busiest time of year for my design studio and blog. It also happens to be a very busy time for my family with fall sports, school events, holidays and birthdays. Anything I can do to save time and make my life easier is a blessing. Last week as I was checking my email, something magical happened, I clicked on an email and five minutes later, I had a whole party planned and on it's way to my home in one neat little box...

The email I received was from The Tom Kat Studio, it contained a link to an article on How to Plan The Perfect Halloween Party. The article included menu suggestions, recipes, links to a coordinating line of decorations/party supplies, free downloadable printables for framing and even a shirt for the hostess to wear! Basically, it was an entire party perfectly planned, organized and coordinated.

As I read the article, I added decorations/party supplies to my shopping cart, printed out a free 8x10 printable and created a shopping list for food items. I created a Facebook page for the event to invite our guests and coordinate RSVP's. Within minutes my entire party was totally organized and on it's way. In the time that it took to read my emails, I had the major task of planning a special event for the kids checked off my list. 

Here is how it turned out...

On the day of the party, it turned out that I was running even shorter on time than I originally thought, so I made some last minute menu substitutions. Instead of making the cute little ghost cupcakes and party popcorn, I grabbed some pre-made cupcakes, cheeseballs and chips from Sam's.  

The slight feelings of mommy guilt I had over purchasing the food instead of making it went away as soon as I saw how special everything looked once it was displayed with the pretty party supplies. 

I can't tell you how much I appreciated being able to have this special party for the kids without having the stress associated with planning it during this busy season. 

Here is a list of the items I purchased from the Halloween Party Collection at The TomKat Studio:

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share our little Halloween party story with you. For links to more products, tips, advice on how to put together this look in your home visit The TomKat Studio.
