So those fabulous vintage Mid Century arm chairs that I had reupholstered made their way to their new home this weekend. We’re still not 100% complete, but all the major pieces are in and I’m already loving how everything’s turned out

Paint is actually (still) gonna happen here. Seems a bit backwards, but their current wall color is very mutable and once I saw the grasscloth up in the room (rockstar homeowners installed it themselves!), I knew paint was a must. We’ll be testing some darker colors, which really excites me (and them, hopefully). So fresh paint plus a few additional pieces & we’ll be totally done…I’ve loved this project AND these clients!!
 Sweet & pretty profesh pics to come

    looks AMAZING!! Very tranquil but has a ton of interest in there with texture and patterns.

    you’re killing me with the curtains. LOVING them.

    Chairs look amazing! Love the the dueling fabrics. Did you make them the same size in the end? They no longer look like the his and hers. Clients who install their own wallpaper? That is bad-ass indeed. My other faves: wallpaper, curtains and those stools. Great job.

    Love it! Fave elements are the greek key ribbon design on the curtains, the custom ottomans and arm chairs, and the grass cloth. It’s all layered very well. It has somewhat of a spa vibe going but still has a homey feel to it. Great job!

    Oops, I said “spa-like” but meant “hotel-like” vibe.

    Out of this world Dayka – the room looks awesome. Your clients must spend all of their time in there. I love those chairs but the overall look is so nice. I love the bedding and the window treatments. Great work!!

    Gorgeousness! LOVE how everything just flows so beautifully. Front to back and side to side. Love those chairs even more in context.
