We’re so happy to share some before and after shots of our Short Hills project! (Please excuse our iPhone snaps! We’ll share professional photos later.)
DINING ROOM BEFORE
This dining room had an uneven and unsightly oval cove with outdated trim and chandelier. The walls were a boring beige. Luckily, the client had this gorgeous vintage mid-century modern dining room set passed down from family.
DINING ROOM AFTER!
We removed the oval cove and replaced it with a clean lined rectangular coffer. We installed a beautiful chinoiserie mural and a new beaded chandelier. We removed the cabinet from the credenza so that the furniture was not so matchy-matchy and to give us space for these stunning deep blue ceramic lamps and round antique mirror. The dining room table and chairs were refinished and repaired, and the cushions covered with a cut velvet fabric.
Linen draperies with custom embroidered border completed the space, and a peony pink velvet window seat cushion added a jolt of color.
POWDER ROOM BEFORE
This powder room had a dark and heavy wood vanity with black marble top, outdated sconces and a blah mirror. There also were awkward alcoves that were not functional storage. Our client wanted this to be a whimsical and fun room for her guests to use, and also wanted to make better use of the space.
POWDER ROOM AFTER!
We removed the vanity cabinet and replaced it with a console style sink with white quartz counter and custom designed decorative backsplash. Pretty sconces with crystal details and a bright blue lacquered mirror create a fresh and modern look. Hand printed birds and butterflies wallpaper add the perfect amount of whimsy! The alcoves were closed and now provide functional storage. A new linen shade with blue grosgrain ribbon to match the mirror ties it all together.
