Client Reveal ~ Pillows & Window Treatments

Last week, I shared a client's install with beautiful window treatments; today, I am sharing a second recent install - this time with more than just window treatments. This couple contacted  me wanting to spruce up their neutral family room and unadorned foyer.

The family room, before:

We started with a new rug. We chose one that is still neutral, but that also brings in shades of blue and warm tans to relate to the wall color.

After selecting the rug, we started to look at fabrics for new pillows and window treatments.  We chose four fabrics that are a mix of fun, colorful patterns.

We repeated one of the fabrics (the stripe on the right) to use as the window treatments.  They have a lot of windows in the space, and we decided the best option for window treatments was to frame the French doors that open out to their deck.  Adding window treatments to every window in the room would have overwhelmed the space.

Here is a close-up of of the window treatment fabric - the blue and neutral stripes coordinate perfectly with the rug.

They have satin nickel hardware throughout their kitchen and family room, so we repeated that with the drapery rod and finials.

She found a rug that she loved, and we used that as the inspiration for the space.

Next, we added a bench and a shelf with hooks.  To bring in more color to the space, we choose three blue fabrics for a bench cushion and pillows.

Now, they have the perfect space for storing shoes, coats, and bags.

I love mixing and matching patterns.  It is also fun to see how new fabrics can completely transform a space!
