Client Glam-Pham

It has been a while since we shared any of our projects. Thought I would share today some work we recently completed for our client Glam-Pham.

Client Glam-Pham was in the process of building a new home in Houston, Texas and reached out to us. She needed help with putting together a design for her master bedroom and office, as well as paint color suggestions for the entire house.  She wanted a soft glam aesthetic for both rooms. Our color palette consisted of soft blues, grays, and ivories. We mixed in a few metallics, along with luxurious textiles and a couple chandies of course! Here is what we came up with.

We can't wait to see progress pics and promise to share. In the mean time, we are really excited to be working on a design for her living room. It is going to be fabulous! A navy sofa may make its way into the room. Here is the color pallete we will be working with.

Client Project- Soothing Master Retreat

One of our recent clients made a move from Charleston, SC back to their home state of Alabama.  Their new home is absolutely stunning, but they felt that their old furnishings weren’t doing the new space justice.  They enlisted our help in their master bedroom where they wanted to create a comfortable retreat but were overwhelmed with never-ending choices.  We were so excited to help them make this space their own!

The double doors lead to their gorgeous master bath (with a cooper tub!) and the door to the right of that is the one entering the bedroom  .

Keeping the space neutral with some coastal colors (the clients' favorite) worked in, we added some layers with textures and patterns and chose new furniture to better accommodate the space, adding a seating area in front of the big window wall.

Here's a before shot of the focal wall in the room:

And here's the "After" elevation of the same wall.  We added long, patterned curtains to accentuate the clients' new woven shades (not pictured above) and tall ceilings and used new layers of bedding, an upholstered bench and neutral rug to soften up all of the wood tones in the room.

Here is the final room plan.  We kept an overall muted palette for a soothing backdrop and added in some blues with artwork, fabrics and accessories.

Also included were a few styling options for the corner console and dresser.

We were thrilled with the final product and were so excited to receive this response from the client:  

I LOVE it!  Beautiful, beautiful work.  And so professionally presented.  Best of all, I feel like I can take this plan and run with it - I can do it now that I know what I'm looking for!  Thank you both so much for an outstanding job.  I'm thrilled.

That's another one in the books!  If we can help you achieve the room you've always wanted, drop us a line here

Master Makeover-Bedroom on a Budget

Our belief is that good design should be available to everyone.  While many interior design jobs can cost tens of thousands of dollars, they don't all have to bust the budget, even when there's no DIY involved.  Just knowing where to look can make good finds go a long way when transforming a space.  

I recently did a few updates in my master bedroom, and it had me dreaming of an entire room makeover...on a budget.  Here's what I put together.  Several of the pieces (the duvet and headboard) are personal buys so I promise I won't lead you astray.

one  ///  two  ///  three  ///  four  ///  five  ///  six  ///  seven  ///  eight  ///  nine

one /// two /// three /// four /// five /// six /// seven /// eight /// nine

1. A couple of good looking lamps with a non-traditional shades from Target. -$39.99

2. Nail trim dressers from West Elm used as side tables because who doesn't need more storage?...currently on sale! -$594.00

3. This Blanchard headboard sells for over $400 on some sites, but I found one on for much less.  And the best part it is that the height is adjustable.  -$246.99

4. Swap out your flush mount or fan for this beauty. -$156.99

5. I purchased this duvet over 4 years ago, and my husband and I still love it.  The Egyptian cotton feels wonderful and it washes well.  Plus you get two shams included. -$115.99

6. An ombre throw for a steal! -$14.99

7. Etsy is my favorite place to shop for pillow covers.  This is just one example why. -$25.00

8. A grouping of four of these frames would look great on any wall.  Another great design by Target.  Buy one, get one 30% off right now. -$24.99

9.  A gorgeous, well-made armoire for less than $1000 is hard to come by.  Thus my appreciation for this one. -$849

Total: $2,776.90

Less than $3000 and not a DIY project involved!  Success!  If you'd like us to put together a mood board for your space, check out the details on our E-Design page.
