Remember this family room plan?  

The space started out like this.....

And it now looks like this!

Dark walls and dark trim made this room feel, well, really dark!

So much lighter and brighter.  The color is Benjamin Moore Sedate Gray. 

We ended up using these beautiful drapes from Pottery Barn. 
They really help make that big beautiful window stand out.

The gallery wall turned out great too.  My client used the design as her guide 
and shopped her little heart out to gather all the pieces for this wall.  

This wall was previously empty.  
We moved the sofa table out from behind the sectional and placed it on this wall.  
With the addition of lamps and a fun mirror, this wall is now another focal point in the room.

We are still waiting on this carpet to be installed. 
It ended up being backordered, but should be in next month.  

My client sent me these pictures and I was so happy when they showed up in my inbox.  
Once the carpet is installed, I will take more pictures and share them.
It is always so exciting to see a project come together.

Now if I could just make a few projects in my own home come together!  


  1. It is always nice to see your design plan in action! I love how the design board has been implemented! It looks great!

  2. How fun to see it come to fruition, Andrea! Inspired changes, my dear. Kudos!

  3. Nice job! The lighter color makes a big difference and the fireplace turned out great!

  4. Andrea, it's beautiful!! What a difference the paint makes and a bright airy room that they can enjoy. I love that console with the lamps flanking either side (I have a mirror just like that one and love it). Oh it's wonderful - can't wait to see it with the carpet installed. Is the carpet going to be wall to wall?

  5. What a transformation! This space is stylish and full of light and life now and your clients have done an excellent job executing your vision. The PB drapes are beautiful in there and I love the addition of the game table and chairs. Would love to know what the carpet is, I am working on a den project where it would be the perfect foundation....

  6. it looks beautiful- so soft and pretty! i am loving the colors. the curtains are gorgeous, too!

  7. It looks amazing Andrea! It doesn't even look like it's the same house! She's got to be absolutely thrilled with it :)

  8. it looks pretty. so light and airy! love it.

  9. Your room is the perfect argument to painting wood! Such beautiful fresh updates, Andrea! I love that you created so many different functional spaces within the room!

  10. Looking great! It's so fun to see designs come to life! Love what a change in wall color did for the room!

  11. Beeeeeeautiful! What a difference. Love it!

  12. Oh wow, that original wall color was a tad overwhelming! Soooo much better as you have it now, and the new carpet is going to be faboo! Great job!

  13. I love those PB drapes, Andrea - the colors are so vibrant! A great gallery wall which I am sure your client had fun working on.

  14. it's so light and beautiful. love the muted colors. i bet the carpet is really going to tie it altogether. just lovely.
