Client Project (before & after)

Over the weekend, we did a little photoshoot at a local Philadelphia client's home that I had completed a couple of years ago.  Since finishing this project, the client has become a very close friend of mine.  And every time I visit, I feel like she needs to kick me out because I want to stay forever.  Every room is comfortable and welcoming, while still feeling polished and put together.  It was important that the furniture be functional for a young family.  Yet, it needed to be sleek enough to entertain.  I'm very happy with the way the space turned out-- it reflects the style of the family that lives there.  And even years later, it still looks terrific when you walk through the door. 

Photographing the completed spaces was LONG overdue.  But after a very busy day of shooting, we came back to the office with some great shots.  Since everyone loves a good "before & after," I thought I would share some of the pictures with you today...

The living room had a unique configuration that presented a challenging layout.  But, when we placed the television over the fireplace, we were able to balance the space, add plenty of unique seating, and create a more organized flow throughout the room.  The pair of ottomans double as extra seats when entertaining.  The Baker parlor chairs (which the client already owned) complement the pair of antique Jean-Michel Frank chairs that we found in a local antique shop (we had the caning restored and they are still some of my favorite vintage finds to date).  The leopard upholstery mixed with Peter Dunham "fig leaf" is great.  And, I love the mix of unlacquered brass...



 (love these chairs!)


And, here are a few additional shots from the rest of the house...

I have a very similar oak dresser to the one in your bedroom. I bought it in Greenwich Village in the 1970s and am still loving it. Here's a photo: https://charlieandjo.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/img_3202-e1424821240152.jpg Jo @ Let's Face the Music

Kelly, it’s amazing….you are doing a really great job. Well done !I love that small rug from the bath, maybe because it should be an element that can drive your imagination and give a gorgeous outlook to each room?
Rugs mean our world which is why I would like to invite you to see what our lady artisans in Nepal create: http://feltballrug.com/inspiration.They are available in a dozen of colors and you’ll quickly find that a felt ball carpet is quite unlike anything else. What do you think? :)
