Design is a process. Candace Olsen said ‘Good Design Takes Time’. It is true! Sometimes you can make a notable change to the interior design of a space pretty quickly, but often the design plan needs to be developed, executed and adjusted to get it just right. So, while we all are trained to get everything quickly, I call it the ‘microwave society syndrome’, take a deep breath and invest time into the planning process to get the best end result.
Below is a recent example of a project S Interior Design is working on. You will see from the before and after photos the room has undergone a transformation. New paint colors, new seating, accent tables, area rugs, window treatments and more. Perhaps most different design element is the fireplace. The fireplace is a focal point in the room and before it had a faux paint technique in muddy brown tones that read as ‘Tuscon’. The new homeowners, wanted to inject color and an ethnic style element into the design. First we painted it, then we chose tiles to place on the hearth and the surround.
Here are photo collages showing other transformational design elements in the great room and adjoining eat-in kitchen area.
