Project Progress: A Living Room for World Travelers

Even though I am still working on the finishing touches of this space, I couldn't wait to share a before and after. I loved working with this client since she had so many cool objects collected from her travels all over the world. They were also really open to pattern and eclectic prints... cue this gorgeous Thibaut Medallion Paisley wallpaper.



Here is the original design plan for the chairs to give you a sense of what the space will look like with the pillows and side table:



Here is the before and after of the window wall, opposite the fireplace. The after shows off these stunning drapes brought all the way to New England from Ireland. (budget brag: all of these pillows are from Home Goods and Target)



The after of the console space showcases a ballerina print from Crete, wooden sculpture from Kenya and the best faux magnolia branches from Crate and Barrel (that I still need to cut down):



Before photo of the fireplace wall with wallpaper mockup below - also waiting for install of reclaimed wood mantle.



After! National Geographics were a great way to add color to the bookshelves and we really edited things down to only showcases one object per shelf. The intricate floor lamp is from Turkey and adds so much character and a story to the space:



Hope to have this space finished up, styled and photographed soon!
