I am working on a new project where the house is a beautiful shell but the interiors are a little tired.

 

The house was furnished over 15 years ago and it is time to freshen things up a bit.  Things have changed-a lot-in the last decade.  Children have left the nest in this family and grandbabies are now on the way.

 

They have hired us to update the furnishings in several of the rooms, and I see this home beautiful and functional for the couple who can easily throw together on a whim a casual dinner party for 20.   One that has quality finishes, materials, and details but where the future grandparents don’t have to worry about sippy cups and Goldfish Crackers ruining their pretty things.

 

I have been asking lots of questions on how they live, what they want this house to give to them.

 

The answers always seem to keep coming back to the same things- a placing to make really good memories.  A place that feels like home.

 

 

 

While we are incorporating their great artwork collection and several pieces that are special to them, I have turned to Pinterest for a little inspiration.

 

I love the warmth of the old wood with the charcoal doors and clean, crisp walls.

 The house is going to have a “collected” feel- a mix of new pieces in with a few new antiques and existing pieces they love.

Who doesn’t need some inspiration from time to time?

 

I am always looking for a new color palette or a subtle detail to add into my interiors, and Pinterest has become one of my favorite tools lately.

 

Not only does it inspire me, but it is a great way to share photos back and forth with my clients.

 

I encourage all of my clients to join Pinterest so we can collaborate on a board and pin together.  This is a great way to kick off a project and help me find the look that is best for their home.

 

Here are a few of my favorite pins of late….

 

This first interior speaks to me.   It could be a room that was installed yesterday, yet it looks like it has evolved over time.   What a great balance between old and new, shiny and matte, smooth and textural.

Love the mix of elements here. Wood, stone, and mirror against lush fabrics and old, crusty pieces. Beautiful!

 

The objects in the room below look like they could be pieces from the homeowner’s collection (instead of off a showroom floor), pulled together to form a seating area.  Again, notice the mixture of elements- stained wood, marble, metal, and painted wood.   Very little duplication of pieces of furniture, but enough to allow your eyes to rest.

This seating area blends beautifully together.  I also love how the fabric panels soften that big, gorgeous window without obstructing the view.

Are you familiar with Ruard Veltman?  If not, look at his work here.  He is extremely creative and I bet you will find his work as inspiring as I do.   The kitchen below is from one of the homes he designed.
