For this design that we finished recently, we wanted to incorporate the homeowners sentimental possessions into the space; things like artwork that had been an engagement gift, a devotional candle with special meaning, and a collection of inherited antique metal purses. In the end we were able to find just the right spot for everything!
Front Sitting Room, Before
Front Sitting Room, Before
Front Sitting Room, After: In this room, narrow white bookshelves provided the perfect backdrop for a pair of pretty slipper chairs. Custom monogrammed pillows added a nice personal touch. We placed a small cabinet in the window alcove – something we don’t usually do. In this case, it just seemed to make sense.
Dining Room, Before (Don’t mind one of our designers – we caught her working on the table!)
Dining Room, After: In the dining room, we used shades of “greige” (a mix of gray and beige) on the walls – a great, updated neutral. A striking, new light fixture really made a difference too!
Instead of using one, large centerpiece, we grouped a variety of items together. The trick here is to still have one item as the main focal point. In this case it was the large glass cloche (or bell-shaped dome) with a candle and some decorative balls inside.
Family Room, Before
Family Room, Before
Family Room, After: In the family room, the homeowner wanted to preserve the original oak as well as her terra-cotta leather furniture. To help break up all of the warm tones we backed the shelving in white, paintable wallpaper meant to look like beadboard.
Blue, green, burgundy and gray accents were used as complimentary color throughout the design.
A tailored valance was a great solution for a long panel of windows across the back wall of the room. A matching valance in different fabric (but in the same colorway) helped to tie the kitchen and family room together.
We have had unbelievable support from other small business owners over the past year, and we feel like we needed to say thank you somehow. We also want to thank those businesses that donated their services/products throughout our Giveaway event – We couldn’t have done it without you. For Fluff You Stuff, Social Media (blogging, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) has been an invaluable resource in our ability to connect with our fans, and so we could think of no better giveaway for business owners then something that allows you to do the same with your fans!
For our bonus giveaway today, we’re giving away 1 month of social media management services from Social Sonar. The month of service includes 4 custom blog posts, as well as 4 tweets and 3 FB posts a week – all tailored to your business. We can tell you from experience that keeping up a Facebook page page and blog takes SERIOUS time, so this is great for those of you who want to increase your internet presence, but don’t have a lot of free hours to make that happen. Please visit Social Sonar’s website and Facebook page to find out more about how their services work.
To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment in the comments section telling us a little bit about your business. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning!
From Social Sonar’s website:
Well, we’ve reached the end of the giveaways, and we can’t tell you how much fun we’ve had with all of this. We are so excited that so many people participated, and we hope that you continue to come to our blog as we introduce our designers, give fun design tips, and continue to highlight other small businesses we love. The Fluff Team is ready to take the world by storm, and we’d be honored to have our Fluff Fans with us every step of the way!
With that in mind, our final giveaway is something we’ve been getting excited about since day 1 of this event. We’re happy to announce that tomorrow, we’ll be announcing the winner of a 1 Room Fast Fluff, one of our signature services. For a Fast Fluff, you get two of our designers for two hours. During the Fast Fluff, we work with the furniture, artwork and accessories you already own to give your room a fresh look. It’s a great way to give a room in your house a quick face-lift!
To register for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment in the comments section telling us which room you would choose for your Fast Fluff, and why. If you also share our Facebook post announcing this giveaway on your Facebook Page and tell us you did in the comments section of that post, you’ll be entered in the drawing TWICE! The winner will be chosen at random and announced tomorrow morning at 10am.
One more thing – don’t forget to check out our OTHER giveaway today. It’s something special we’ve put together just for our fellow business-owners, and you can find out more about it in the Blog Post immediately following this one.
In last week’s blog post, I told you about how I was in the process of choosing wallpaper for my home. Here are the before and after pictures!
