One of the first steps in taking the home from dark and drab to cheerful and welcoming was painting the darkly stained built-in bookcases off-white and highlighting the backs in a gorgeous aqua, giving them dimension and adding a wash of color to the entire wall. Outdated ceiling fans were replaced with the luminous ceiling fixtures which cast a soft glow.

The glass top table provides an intimate dining space and allows the exquisite chartreuse and grey damask fabric on the silver leaf custom dining chairs to shine through. Buffet lamps provide additional ambient lighting. The buffet itself was a consignment store find.

This kitchen is nothing but joyful in the morning with it’s apple green walls and custom valances adding a splash of color and pattern about the windows. The new chandelier is more appropriately sized for the space and its crystal accents reflect light throughout the room.

Old brown backsplash tile was replaced with this stunning classic marble pattern which breathes new life into the existing cabinets and countertop. Black and white is a terrific, elegant counterpart to the warm green walls.

A consigned table and chairs were refreshed by refinishing the tabletop and reupholstering the chair seats. The aqua, chartreuse, teal and indigo color scheme is carried through in all the tableware and accent pieces.

The master bedroom is a sumptuous retreat for the couple. Ample space accommodates a custom upholstered king headboard and generously proportioned furnishings. The draperies and bedding are all custom made and swath the room in the same rich and dramatic fabric.
