“It’s all in the details… transformations…”

by Erin Paige Pitts

A few weeks ago, I did a post on beamed ceilings.  One of the houses I showed was very much under construction at the time.  That room is now complete and I want to share with you the transformation that room under went. 

The client has been in this home for over 20 years.   They are now empty nesters and wanted to actually “use” their living room.  The directive was to make the living room into a sort of  “reading” room.   I needed to make them want to use the room, not due to guilt, but because it drew them to it.   This is a rather standard living room in a two story colonial style home outside of Washington D.C. 

Here is what we started with….

This is where we ended up…. (please keep in mind these are “just installed shots”, not professional shots)

The moral of the story here is almost any room can be transformed into something wonderful with the right vision.  The client knew what they wanted but didn’t know how to achieve it.   They believed in their designer’s ability to transform this space into something beyond what it had been before.   Clearly, we still have items to add, and professional shots would make it look even better. 

Thanks for allowing me to share this recent installation and to the clients who believed in my vision!
