Client Room Reveal~Westin Inspired Sun Room


Today's room makeover was a really fun on-site home styling project.  
 This home belongs to Scott, Beth and Jack, a wonderful family that just moved into a beautiful, brand spanking new home...

Scott and Beth asked me to help them turn their empty sun room into a swanky (but family friendly) lounge.  When we began the project, they mentioned they liked the look of the Westin Hotel.

For inspiration, I took a field trip to the nearest Westin.  Here's a look...





 Westin definitely has a signature style,  I'd describe it as "business swank".  Business in the front, party in the back, no wait...that's a mullet!  Let's just stick with "business swank".  The Westin has a modern, clean, hotel aesthetic with pops of pattern and color.  

After visiting the hotel, I headed back to the design studio and created a design plan for the space.  Then we set out to create a high end look without the high end budget.




Here is the Westin inspired, family friendly lounge created just for Scott, Beth and Jack:













We balanced the project allowance by combining custom pieces with quality home-store finds.  








The furniture was scored at a local furniture store. 
  






The drapery is my favorite feature.
I used a top secret drapery trick to create the illusion of symmetry.  This room is not symmetrical, but using drapery in a sneaky way it appears to be.  Can you spot the trick, if so tell me in the comments.








Stop by next week for a full post dedicated to the drapes.  I can't wait to share the details, including the secret drapery trick and a direct link to the source of the custom drapery shop that made these beauties just for this space.








I'll be sharing more of this home soon.  I had the privilege of styling a few rooms in Scott, Beth and Jack's house.  Humphrey the dog and I have become pretty tight so you will probably see more of him also.    


  



Thank you Scott, Beth and Jack for allowing me to share your new sun room lounge.
I mentioned before that this was an on-site project.  Similar results can be obtained through my online design service (please click here for information).  I am now accepting new clients :).



**Out of courtesy to my on-site design client, I'm unable to share specific product sources.  Thank you for understanding.

  2. The windows are different sizes/heights but curtains are hung the exact the same to appear cohesive and symmetrical

  3. The doorwall (?) to the right of the main three windows is quite a bit shorter than the others. Drapes were hung at the same level close to the ceiling to detract from the shorter stature of the doorwall.

  6. Love the green along with the gray. Red and blue are so...expected! Green was a great, fresh choice. Looks as if the windows (or maybe one is a door) on the sides of the room are different shapes...but the drapes camouflage that beautifully!

  13. I had to look at the responses since I did not spot it...that is a great idea and I love the the way the drapes are a different color at the bottom.

  14. Great job! I would never have noticed the difference in the height of the window on the right with the way you hung the drapes if you wouldn't have mentioned it! The resemblance to the Westin is perfectly balanced with the feeling of home. Excellent work as usual, Sarah!
