Three Rooms, One Design~ A Foyer, Living and Dining Design Plan

We've had a fantastic summer in the design studio, there are lots of projects we've been working on that I'm excited to share! Starting today. This was a Three Room Design Plan we created for Erite and her family. They were just getting settled into a brand new home that has a gorgeous open floorpan. Erite asked us to create a design plan for her Foyer, Formal Living Room and Dining Room which are all open to each other. Using some of her current furniture and accessories along with new, budget friendly merchandise selections, we gave Erite an easy to follow plan that ensures seamless flow between all three spaces...

As with all our Online Design Plans, we began with an inspiration board and a true to scale floor plan of each space that contains all of the items included in Erite's custom design plan (both new merchandise and her existing pieces). Then we followed up with a complete, detailed presentation and product source list that included recommendations for new paint colors, window treatments, furniture, art and accessories. 

Here is a peek at the plan we created for her Foyer...

From the foyer, you have a clear view into the Living Room. Erite wanted these spaces to flow together, working on them at the same time allowed us to create a seamless design. 

Here is a look at the plan we created for the Living Room...

The Living Room and Dining Room are separated only by a partial wall. Erite had a gorgeous dining table that she wanted to keep in the space, but other than that it was a clean slate. 

We created a plan for the Dining Room that tied in with the Living Room and Foyer design. 
Take a look...

This three room design project was a lot of fun. During the interview process, I got to know Erite and it was an honor having the opportunity to design for her and her family. Bringing their personilty in to their brand new home was a complete joy. 

We currently have a few openings for new online design projects, but the fall and winter tend to fill up fast! Please feel free to email us with any questions you may have on how our affordable online design service works!

First Step in our Bedroom Makeover

Instead of sharing just one dramatic before/after post of a makeover I have in the works, I thought it would be fun to show the process of the room transformation. A few days ago, I shared my plan for a mini makeover in my Master Bedroom. If you missed it, here is a look at the design board I created to illustrate the new look...

This bedroom makeover was inspired by a blog post I wrote for the Country Curtains Blog. In the article, I shared three simple ways to give any space the "Casual Comfort" look that we are all so in love with right now. I explained how to introduce Elements of Nature, Add Layers and Utilize a Mainly Neutral Color Palette while maintaining lots of interest. After writing the article, I decided to follow my own advice and apply these three concepts to my very own master bedroom. 

The makeover is now officially underway. New window treatments were the first change I made in the space. I selected these amazing Sheer Linen Rod Pocket Curtain Panels from Country Curtains to layer over my existing natural fiber roman shades. 

Here is a peek...

You can see in these images how these beautiful panels allow the natural sunlight to filter into the space making it feel light and bright. What I love most about these drapes is that they combine easy care polyester with the luxury and texture of linen. 

The new window treatments touch on all three of the concepts that were addressed in my Casual Comfort blog post.  The natural fiber roman shades bring an element of nature to the design. The beautiful fabric drapery layered over the natural romans gives us multiple layers. Lastly, the warm, white color of my new drapery panels is a timeless, effortless, neutral color. 

The rest of the makeover is now underway. The plan is to continue to apply the three key Casual Comfort concepts to all of the elements being introduced into the space. 

In an effort to keep costs down, but still attain a luxurious look, I have decided to hit up some local discount home stores. One trip last week was particularly successful. I was able to score a lot of pieces that were very similar to the items I placed in my original design board at a fraction of the cost. Take a quick look at the little pile of goodies I came home with...

Normally I would have the room painted prior to installing the drapery panels, but my painter was booked until next week and the show must go on. The new color I have selected is "Naval" by Sherwin Williams. The bulk of my design plan is neutral in color, I can't wait to give it dose of one of my favorite hues, navy blue.

Now that I have a new paint color in the works and a good start on the accessories,
I'm getting pretty excited to see the new space come together. Here are some of my plans based on the three Casual Comfort Concepts...

1. Bring In A Little Nature
-Nature Inspired Art
-Live Plants/Foliage
-Accessories Found In Nature

2. Add Layers
-Layered Rugs
-Layered Bedding
-Layered Vignette and Shelf Arrangements

3. Utilize a Mainly Neutral Color Scheme While Keeping The Space Interesting
-Neutral Linens
-Combination of Neutral and Colorful Paint
-Use of Pattern
-Layers of Texture
-Colorful Accessories

The Casual Comfort look is perfect for my lifestyle. I'm very excited to have the opportunity to put one of my guests blog posts articles into action!

Stay tuned for more updates on this room transformation.

My Master Bedroom Makeover

It's official, a Master Bedroom Spruce Up is underway at The Yellow Cape Cod. It all started with the addition of new curtain panels. You know how it goes, one thing leads to another and before you know it, I was inspired to give the space a whole new look.

Here is a peek at the inspiration board I put together that illustrates the new look..

It's all about layers, natural texture and neutral colors highlighted with a dose of blue. I'm applying everything I talked about in my blog post on "Casual Comfort Style"  over at Country Curtains. If you missed it, you can catch it here. 

I've decided to challenge myself to save a little money by shopping discount stores for some of the elements while making a few select investments. I'm keeping my current furniture, the new look will come from new paint, textiles and accessories. I can't wait to share the progress of this transformation. Stay tuned, it's going to be fun!
