{CLIENT} Making a New House, A Home.

A new house for this client, meant making it their own!  I came in to help them use pieces of their own, and then added in some new to make it their home!   

We started with basically a blank slate.  Added in some new paint colors, wallpaper (yes, wallpaper, love!), new drapery, artwork, accessories, and now this young family is ready to grow into their new home.

York Wallcovering in a chocolate brown added to the back of the bookcases for a little added interest! 
I kept the styling in the bookcases minimal, so that the beautiful wallpaper wouldn't get hidden.
I also kept the items in the bookcases large, all similar in color  and not too fussy to keep the overall look bold and graphic instead of busy and cluttered. 

Some extra seating in the corner for additional guests when entertaining friends and family.  Chairs are from Target. 
If you have great family photos and don't know what to do with them, turn them into artwork!  It is also a great way to decorate around the tv.  

Even though Chevron can be a bit too trendy at times, this classic take on Chevron really works in this space because it is such a neutral color palette in the curtains.  Drapes are from Crate & Barrel. 

I love this rug from from!  It pulled it the colors erfectly, and the darker background is so forgiving for those dining room spills you may have.  
My client owned some beautiful China from her grandmother and wanted it displayed in the dining room somewhere.  So I mixed the old with some new and hung the China on the wall as art!
 The spaces were completed just in time for hosting their first big Thanksgiving dinner in their new home!

 I hope Jessica Stout Design's inspires you to do something new with your home today!
