A total makeover was done when a dull den was transformed into a warm, cozy area for conversation, TV viewing, and work.
The photos will show the design process of before, during, and after....

Creating A Dramatic Fireplace
Well, I said I was going to makeover the fireplace in the first posting, and here it is ...
The before and after -- from a white wall to a faux finish wall that makes this room a dramatic one; a true focal point of this room. The colors were inspired by the vase sitting on the floor in front of the fireplace, and turned out to be a great match!

This bedroom makeover reflects a romantic setting with an eclectic style. It started with a somewhat empty room that shows the bed mattress on the floor...
A design drawing shows the vision for this part of the room...
The result displays the vision...
The other side of the room had a nice nook area...
This was transformed into a cozy vanity area.
The room was completed with accessories and wall hangings, helping to create an atmosphere that is warm and pleasing.

Creating a new space often begins with a vision. It could be a theme, colors, style, or all three.
In this living room, I cleared the room and began measuring every wall, window, and crevice. I then drew up a floor plan and put my vision to work. From pre-measured furniture pieces I selected, I made cut-out pieces and placed them in various spots in the room until I came up with my "bingo!" layout.
Here's how it started...and here's my vision:
Adding a rich fall color scheme, I grouped large furniture pieces to create a sitting area in front of the television and fireplace area (on opposite wall):
The walls are a neutral tone (not white) and help brighten the area in contrast with the rich color scheme.
Accessories included wall hangings, throw blankets and pillows, ottoman table tray, and fireplace candles and floral. It didn't take much to make this room come alive and become a cozy haven.
The next phase of this makeover will be the fireplace -- adding a mantel and darker wall color, making this room's focal point a masterpiece. The final makeover phase will be replacing the carpet with antique wood flooring.
