One of my most popular design services is the hourly design consultation. This is where
I come into your home and suggest any thing you’d like related to design:
PAINT COLORS (most requested!), window treatment ideas, furniture arrangement,
remodel product selections, room layout, finish choices, accessory options,
move in services, and the list goes on…
Most of the time, we knock it out in one hour!
A custom home builder, Neil Blanchard, called me to give a little direction to his clients
who are in the process of a MAJOR remodel in Dallas.
The kicker… authentic Arts and Crafts… as far as design style-
A bit different from the norm, but I loved it!
My clients had thoroughly done their homework but were stuck on a few things…
wood finishes and paint color.
They were headed in this direction and we tweaked
the wood finish to go a bit darker.
Sort of like this:
The main concern was:
How do we make all the wood surfaces work together?
As you can see in the above photo, the wood tone on the paneling and beams are consistent,
the furniture is also and everything contrasts the floor.
We did the same:
Darkened up the finish color which will contrast their Stickley
furniture that sits on the lighter hardwood floor.
Take a peek at the custom backsplash above
and authentic lighting… love it!
We also chose cabinet hardware and a lighter cream paint color for the kitchen ceiling
(instead of yellow) to accentuate the beams.
To give some flavor to the front part of the house, we chose
Sherwin Williams Mannered Gold to go with the
warm amber pendants in the kitchen- it all flows!
Here are the drawings for the fireplace design:

I thoroughly enjoyed working with the Perry Pair and
wish them luck with the rest of the remodel!
I know it will turn out as beautiful as these rooms:
We accomplished a ton in an hour and a half:)
Until next time,
