  • New House.....New Chance to Decorate a Room, When we moved in the walls were a rust color.  I painted them a chocolate brown and absolutely love the color.  So warm!  Cream and brown shades are the color scheme for our new living room., Living Rooms Design

  • Making My Apartment My Own, When I moved in it was a typical apartment and I had typical 20 year old college furniture. White walls and Ikea everywhere. I spent a month or so designing the entire space on a 3D program, making changes, getting inspiration everywhere I could find some. Many of my furniture I found on Craigslist for a bargain and it was either painted or otherwise refurbished to fit my space. 

When I moved in the space where my book case exists was just an empty recess in the wall. Obviously I had to build a bookshelf in there.

I installed the picture frame molding myself and swapped all of the light fixtures and wall fixtures.

The light above the dining table was a CL find. I painted it black, extended the chain, omitted the shades and crystals.

The china cabinet was a $100 CL find. Built by the original owner's grandfather. I painted it white with a grey back on the interior to offset white china.

The fireplace was a $50 CL find I painted it white, added a wood medallion, and built an enclosure on the back so the fireplace would not be open to the wall making it a little more realistic.

The mirror above the couch is a beautiful mercury glass mirror from around 1900. My dad found it in an estate he bought. He painted it white and gave it to me as a gift. 

Couch, rug, dining set, side tables, and accent chair are new., Living Rooms Design

  • Open Living/Dining Room/Den and Kitchen, This condo is in an historic 1902 publishing company's old offices. (The historic Lippincott Publishing Company) 

We essentially bought a white empty box of 1900 sq ft and had to do everything from scratch -- including bring up the plumbing and electric. We worked with an architect to design the space, but much of it was our own design and ideas.

Did all of the decorating myself. And while proud of it, would appreciate some thoughts, help, ideas on how to improve it. I enjoy decorating and design - but its just a fun hobby., Living Rooms Design

  • Old meets New Great Room, This was my third and final try to complete this great room. Our sectional was moved to our newly completed basement, so I had a chance to start over. The bench/daybed is actually Candace Olson. The rug was from Restoration Hardware.The table is Thomasville, and the couch is from Leather Creations. The lamp beside the couch is from Restoration Hardware and the lamp behind the chair in the far corner is Pottery Barn. The linen and leather pillows on the couch and chair are Restoration Hardware. I was going for a "Restoration Hardware meets Candace Olson" kind of look.  Please let me know what you think!
***My paint colors are Sherwin Williams: the two adjacent walls facing each other is "gray area" and the wall surrounding the fireplace is "Spaulding gray". , Living Rooms Design

  • Studio - Tiny Space, Big Ideas (Before and After), This 483 square foot condo was a complete renovation and was a 100% DIY.  Being a studio, space was obviously an issue.  By using versatile furniture selections and coming up with sneaky storage solutions we were able to come up with a space that is both comfortable and inviting.

This was my first and only flip I've done since graduating with a degree in interior design.  I plan on getting into the flipping business when the market turns back around.
