GRAY ALL THE WAY: THE KITCHEN AND LIVING ROOM

Project Gray all the Way was dubbed such because these fabulous clients of mine were comfortable with modern elements of gray and gray and...gray. It was my job to introduce new elements and take this homeowner on a design adventure filled with education and even a few color risks. The result? My sweet client saying, "Okay, I'm going to let go, and let Anna" (hilarious - I loved that) and a house based on warm grays and livened up with lavender, green, blue and as a surprise, even some HOT pink ikat pillows. I know, we got real wild.  

KITCHEN BELOW

This kitchen required a LO ofT paint and some new finishes. New countertops, appliances, furniture, an island and a custom roman shade freshened this space right up. For dramatic effect, let's look at the before:

 And after...

So. Much. Better. 

The living and dining area, right off of the kitchen, had the same sad yellow vibe as the kitchen. Yellow walls actually make spaces more drab than happy, so out came more paint and lots of layering. Here's the before as seen through the ole iPhone. 

And after! Carpeting, curtains, a big velvet sectional, all with a hint of mid century modern and inspired by the gorgeous colors in the Gray Malin photo hanging in the dining area. 

One of my favorite parts of the space was this gorgeous coffee table covered in grasscloth that we designed to fit the space perfectly. It has just the right amount of texture and interest.

And talk about the cutest toy storage! Loved finding a great hiding place for everyday toys.

This home really was such a pleasure to work on. We took our time in decisions and getting things just right until we hit go and dove in to create a space that felt complete and cohesive! More to come!
