Stone Street Dining Room

I’m back with another space from our #iiprojectgrowinguponstonestreet, and I’m so excited by how it turned out.

Before

Before

Small changes can have the biggest impact, and our new focal wall is a prime example of that.  Simple wall molding on the lower two thirds of the main wall painted two shades darker than our wall color throughout the space helps to give a little drama and makes the space feel just a little more special.

The new chandelier is the perfect update to the existing table and chairs.  I love the strong black lines and how it instantly modernizes the space— a fun juxtaposition to the more traditional table and chairs.

New floor-length curtains help layer the space, and the fun vertical stripe ties in the theme in the Living Room. The addition of the simple frames full of pictures of this gorgeous family above the molding and a few table accessories were the only accessories we needed to freshen the room.

I’m just so excited for the fun dinners they will have in this space.

California Cool Eat-In Kitchen Area

If you were here last week, you saw a great before and after in the kitchen of one of our clients. As promised, here is the beautiful other half of that room! I really love a great kitchen renovation where we can incorporate little moments like this one here.

The sweet homeowners had a dining room adjacent to this area, so we knew we wanted to create a less formal, more intimate and cozy space for the eat-in kitchen area. As with most kitchens, this area was going to get used for so many of the day to day activities. Whether it’s by the family of four at dinner, homework after school, or girls’ wine night, the goal was to accommodate numerous scenarios since we knew it would be the hub of the home.

We really love the way the custom bench and oval table allow for better range of motion by allowing us to move a little closer to the wall. Not only is the black faux leather on the seat cushion easy to keep clean and extremely durable, but it brings such a cool sense of style to the space. Another thing that gives us all the heart eyes is the vintage Kilim rug. Standard size rugs would have just laid too wide and short in this area. So with a little eBay searching, this one not only fits the space perfectly and brings in the most stunning muted colors, but it hides a multitude of sins (i.e. dinners and girls’ wine night).

The straight lines of the bench really set the stage for the gorgeous modern lines of the Eero Saarinen style table. The warmth and texture of the wishbone chairs keep everything from feeling too sterile, and the gorgeous pendant light from Serena and Lily carries that vibe right up to the ceiling. The simple art and accessories keeps everything fresh, clean, and oh-so-lovely.

Casually cool, California modern style, made approachable, livable, and uber functional for this cool midwestern family. I just can’t get enough of it!

Don’t you just want to spend all your lazy Sunday mornings here?

Westwood Wonder Dining Room

This space belongs to a super sweet family that recently moved into one of my favorite neighborhoods here in Muncie.

This mid-century ranch home has rooms that seem to go on for miles, and we were honored to get to bring new life in a style specific to the homeowners.

We had the challenge of creating a space that was both fun and fresh. The eclectic mix, including animal print upholstery, vintage wood furniture, modern gold and velvet chairs, grasscloth wallpaper, and a gorgeous beaded chandelier makes for a space that is completely unique, unexpected, and stylish.

Floor to ceiling custom curtains were a fun splurge, while inexpensive lattice applied to the outdated mirrors was easy on the budget.

We are so excited for the dinner parties this soon-to-be family of four will be hosting here.

Here’s a glimpse of what the room looked like before the transformation.
