A Client Reveal. Before And After.

I love a before and after blog post.

I was hired to redo all of the main areas in this 7000+ square foot home, section by section.

And we just finished the first section! Not too many words to say on this one. Just photos…

I lie.

I am going to touch a little on the process… With a room shaped this way, I had to start with a floor plan.

Damn. Lied again.

We started with what they were keeping. The fireplace. They told me a story about this faux finisher that spent hours meticulously painting the fireplace, and they did not have the heart to change it. You guys know about me and my fireplaces. I wanted to do a modern wood treatment with a series of 2 x 8 inch slats going in differing directions (horizontal, diagonal, etc.) But the story touched my heart and made me giggle a little too, so we kept it as is.

Here are the space plans I came up with:

By Tiffany Brooks Interior Designer √By Tiffany Brooks Interior Designer CI know what you hard-core design types out there are thinking…”Why didn’t I make the fireplace the focal point?” My answer: “Because, I did not want to!”

Kidding

My real answer is, I always let the end user determine the focal point. They hardly ever used the fireplace, but used the hell out of the TV. Also, with this much space I did not want to plop the TV over the fireplace. That would have been tragic. So, I came up with seating zones.

After I sent all three plans, the homeowners let me know they liked #3 the best.

Number three it was!

Here are the befores and afters.

So… what do you think? Before I ask everybody what their opinions are, I have to tell you that my photographer Marcel Page shot the hell out of this thing.  He likes it when I mention him, so Marcel there you go.  🙂

Have an Amazing Day All!
