A few weeks ago one of my awesome clients e-mailed me asking for a little help with her Christmas decor. She wanted to use mostly what she had but add a little something new. I loved the tree decor she already owned but wanted to add a few larger elements to give the tree a variety in scale. I added the large gold & silver ornaments, a few extra glittered pine cones, and the ribbon cascading down [which is a hot tree trend this year!]. Then I carried the ribbon onto new flocked garlands I added to to the stair railing.
While I was there I snapped a few quick shots of a few other projects we've been working on around the house. Her sweet daughter was graduating to a big girl room and needed a few big girl items. A significant part of my job is helping clients use what they already have in addition to adding new items. We decided to keep all of the pink elements that a previous designer had helped with. It was up to me to find new bedding, a nightstand/lamp, extra seating, and a dress-up station that complimented the previous style and design.

Her dining rug & wingback chairs were also needing a facelift. It was important to incorporate fabrics that were durable and could handle a spill or two. The chairs were reupholstered beautifully and the rug could not be a better fit.
