Effortless revamp after 20 years. It’s hard to pull off because you run the risk of making the things you’re keeping look out-of-date.
My client loves her home! And the timeless and transitional decorating we did in 2000. But after 20 years of grandkids and life, she wanted to freshen it up (not that it needed it, everything held up). So we did 3 things: white paint just about everywhere, simpler designed draperies and roman shades, and a couple of cozy new toss pillows. Since we kept to the transitional design lines in the new drapery and shades, it will last another 20 years!
Because we painted the sloped ceilings the same color as the walls this time (instead of white ceiling and taupe walls), the architecture is unassumingly captured, and this beautiful overhead line completes the interior design.
And, given that we love taupe, and it’s the tone of the sofas and in the rug detailing, we added an aura of it on the fireplace surround. Due to the fact we started with good pieces and classic shapes, the refreshing update was a snap! Effortless revamp after 20 years.
In my career, lots has happened!
