Foo dogs flank the front door – no growl here – just a warm welcome!
Let’s make a left turn into the living room. A girl after my own heart….there’s a little cream, pink and chocolate brown in this room. Working with HB Home, Stephanie has taken a new construction home and given it the feel of a house with a history.
Melding sophistication and glamour, these chairs say, “come sit by the fireplace”, while the pink & white snakeskin pillows, say “i’ll have another glass of champagne”!
Everyone who sees these pillows, LOVES THEM. Including me!
The Chinese Empress print above was bought at auction in San Francisco. There’s a matching Emporer….but Stephanie is still looking for a home for him.
Stephanie had the doors mirrored…reflecting great taste and opening up the room.
Three (love the odd number) oversized intaglios lend elegance without taking away from everything else in the room.
Across the center hall colonial is the dining room. The sconces and chandelier were family pieces.
Old and new and something blue. The portrait is Stephanie’s grandmother — the lamps are new — the coral is, well…..blue!
Stephanie wanted me to include this as a “before” because I’ve promised to come do her cabinets for the holidays — later in the year.
Her kitchen has all the modern touches…stainless appliances, large open workspace…and a marble island. The Statuary marble on the island was her update…and today she’ll be updating the countertops with it, as well!
Everything really pops now that she had the hardwoods redone — in a darker finish. Love the high contrast.
You can see it for yourself one day…..just sign up for her Flowers 101 Class!
Wouldn’t that be fun?
