Hello Everyone I have been slacking with the update of Casa C Facelift.
Here you can see some of the before photos, It was really dark and gloomy. The paint alone was just to dark for this area with not much natural light coming in. I knew we needed to lighten the walls up first and go from there with the rest of the design.
Going along with the traditional, classic theme of the living room design, I decided to add some texture with some wall paper. We purchased the wall paper from Benjamin Moore. I loved all the details that went into these wall coverings. Covering the tan paint with this light fresh classical wallpaper really changed the entire look of this foyer. Floral prints with hues of sparkle helped transform this entry from gloomy to bright and airy.
An updated console table with golden/brass trim we found from Bombay in Cambridge, which is now closing!! Even though that store isn’t my personal style it had great selection for the more traditional, classic home owner. The mirror was a great find and deal from Home sense we had originally placed this over the fireplace however playing around with it i knew it was meant for the foyer. Layering of a few books with the statue sculpture contributes to the classic feel of the design. Simple symmetry comes into play, I love the clean look that symmetrical styling can do to a space.
We replaced the dated chandelier with a smaller scale brighter piece and filled the vases with a touch of floral. I chose my mother’s wedding flower which ads that much more of a special touch to the design of her home.
Here is the after…
What do you think? A lot more welcoming, fresh and airy.
