Project details…so, so many!

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Recently at the High Point Furniture Market I selected a lot options for furnishings and accessories for a guest house project.  I started with the upholstery pieces and fabrics.  The rest of the accessories, rugs, and bedding followed suit.  Here is where we started.

A number of fabrics were selected and the then narrowed down to the samples above.

Here are the seating styles (not shown with the selected fabrics).

Many accents tables, lamps and accessories were selected to compliment the color scheme of the fabrics.  I think the items in the two photos above are keepers!  Can you see how the accent fabric in the first picture at the very top coordinates with the table and trays?

The guest bedroom is tied in with the first floor furnishings with grey and golden hues in the bedding and area rugs.  (Note: the MBR rug is not in the guest house.  A different palette was selected for that space.)

When complete the “HAPPY” sign will hang in this guest space to make you smile and be happy!

The wealth of products at the High Point market always amazes me.  Can you see how shopping this market can really make a project come together?

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about these project selections.

All the best!

Last week I asked all our followers to don a designer hat and pick the best combination of rugs and and paints for the Chalk project.  From the many great responses I can see a “little” designer skills buried in all of you.  If you missed last week’s post check it out here.   Be the Designer

Here is the picture from last week.companyc_rugs_wool-paint-benjaminmoore-york-candiceolsen_wallcovering  There were no right or wrong selections. Many of you gave it a lot of thought and provided great reasons for your choices.  From the comments presented a random number was drawn and the winner of the art glass gift from

 Mary Sherwood Art Glass 

is

CINDY VINSON

Congratulations, Cindy!

Here are Cindy’s choices and comments:

Rug A-love the flower (Gardener in me)
Rug D-love the plaid
Paint-Majestic Blue
Cindy’s says:  “Just used these colors in our condo in North Myrtle Beach and again at Lake Gaston. My favorite colors. Blue is calming, rich, never get tired of it. Rug C looks “childlike” from the sample, so it is my least favorite. I am more scared of color than Mary is, instead of a color that is bright and pops, I go for the calming, tranquil effect, good color next to water (maybe that says my life is chaotic, idk.)”

Loved your comments, Cindy!  Yes, you know me well.  I am never afraid of color!  Thanks for entering in on the fun of “Being a Designer”.  I will contact you about sending you this one of a kind fused glass Christmas ornament.christmas_ornament_2016_prize_colorful_fusedglass

NOW-what did the client pick?  Here are her choices:

Rug C, Company C Art and Soul, will be the accent rug for a small sitting area adjacent to the DR.

Rug D, Company C Tweedy Lake, will be the larger area rug under the dining table.

Benjamin Moore Corlsbud Canyon will be the accent wall Benjamin_moore_corlsbudcanyon_076_accentwall

The tile is being installed and the painting will start next week.  When all is done I will show you how all of this comes together.  Can hardly wait!

I am in the process of planning another designer challenge.  Hope you will join us again with your choices and comments!!!

Off to Napa Valley for the weekend.  I’m sure I’ll have some stories to tell next week.

Comments always welcome!!!  Let me hear from you!

Don’t you love the colors in these Company C rugs!  It is hard to decide which one to use.  A & C will be the accent rugs to coordinate with B & D.

We have tentatively selected two accent paint colors to coordinate with the rugs.  All walls will be Benjamin Moore White Dove except for one accent wall in the great room.  Here are the choices:benjaminmoore_majesticblue_2051-40_paint_accent_wall

Benjamin Moore Majestic Blue

The long narrow roll on the right (in the photo) is wallcovering to be used in a nearby office.  This is a great new onyx pattern by Candice Olsen for York Wallcovering!  I included this so you can see one element to consider when you are choosing the rugs and the paint colors.

NOW-it is your turn to pick the rugs and paint.  Be the designer!

Select 1 rug on the left (A or C), one rug on the right (B or D) and 1 paint color from the above.  Let us know why you liked that combination.  Post your selections and comments below.  I will let you know if you and my client have the same good taste!

For all of you who respond I will randomly select one name and send you a special gift for Mary Sherwood Art Glass.  Good luck!

Have fun with it!

All the best!
