Everyone loves a good before and after transformation and boy do I have a fabulous one for you today!
I started working with this client about 9 months ago after she got halfway through the renovation process and decided she needed an extra pair of hands to help get through stage two – picking furniture! Renovating is a stressful process filled with a tonne of decisions that all effect the next so when it comes to choosing furniture often my clients are totally overwhelmed and ready to give up. This client had a really clear idea of what she wanted, she just didn’t have the time or the patience to spend hours on end sourcing all of the pieces so she was a dream to work with…
Scroll down for a run through of how we pulled the unit together.
The lounge room brief was modern eclectic. I wanted to add a bunch of textures to the room and the first piece I chose was the TV Unit. The TV was going to be wall mounted so a low lying TV Unit wasn’t going to work. I’m a big fan of using buffets as TV Units as you get a tonne of additional storage and the wall ends up looking more in proportion with a wall hung TV as there isn’t a heap of blank wall space between the two. From there I added the blue velvet armchairs and a tan leather sofa. My client had already found the gorgeous vintage rug so it was just a matter of pulling together some finishing touches to finish off. Faux plants always seem to find a way into my client’s mood boards too so I love that this one found a special home in the corner of the room to fill it out nicely.
The kitchen selections were all done prior to me meeting the client but we wanted to do something fun for the barstools at the island as there’s no dining room in this apartment. I wanted to contrast against all the white cabinetry and splashback so went for black rattan weave barstools that also tied in with the pendant light strings.
Here’s a peek at some of the other rooms in the apartment too…
If you’d like a helping hand picking out furniture, decor, art and finishing touches for your home shoot me an email to see how I can help. We did this on a relatively small budget and couldn’t be happier with the final outcome.
