Pretty and peaceful

Okay. Here we go. I actually went back to snap a few more pictures because a few items we'd been waiting on were delivered. This is a living room that I did recently for a darling client. We had so much searching out antique accessories and picking out items. She had some great antiques to start with that we just built upon. The look she wanted was a modern interpretation of shabby chic. A little fresher, a little fancier, but still calm and comfortable. We used a mix of high and low, and old and new pieces. It's a little departure from the bright colors and bold patterns that my clients usually ask for and I loved doing a such a beautiful room.

My client had these beautiful antique candlesticks that were
 a real inspiration for the style of the room.


Isn't her antique piano stool adorable? 
These stools are available on amazon for a steal. I noticed they 
were also featured in a recent issue of Country living
This rug was purchased at Ballard Designs, I blogged about it here






These darling chairs are from the Country Living collection available at Kmart. 
Another wonderful deal. They are so beautiful in person
The rug is by Dash and Albert. This particular rug Plain Tin has been a favorite 
of mine for quite some time. I loved working with it in this project. 






These are old family photos belonging to my client. 
Don't they look beautiful in this apothecary jar? 












These beautiful bird pillows were custom made by etsy seller Pillows de Post


I hope this room was worth the wait!
