Modern Blue and Grey

Hello, poor, neglected blog!  This summer has been so very insane!  But, I've been busy with fabulous projects and am so very blessed to get to work with so many amazing clients!! I hope I can share more regularly soon.

My post today features a brand-new condo.  We started with virtually a blank slate.  My client had purchased a sofa, two accent chairs, a big TV and a lamp.  Otherwise, the place was empty:
My client wanted something modern with accents of blue.  Here's what it looks like now:

I think I may have scared her a bit with my blue color choice, but she finally came around to the idea and now loves the bright pop against the cool grey walls.  A large bookshelf/entertainment unit fills up the family room wall with fun silver and white accessories and baskets to hide storage.  I am a huge fan of the Ikea Expedit units -- you'll see them in a lot of my designs.  They're amazing for storage, inexpensive and come in many colors.  They can be used vertically or horizontally and can be combined to create configurations like this one.
Here's another view of the bright blue wall:

My client uses a door to the left of this console to enter the house through the garage.  She needed a place to put her keys and mail and this piece fits the bill.  Love the white gourd lamps against that blue!!  We will get more storage trays for the smaller openings.

I had a lot of fun with the very blank entry to the home -- just a long hallway:
We added a fun stripe in a darker color of grey, which is used in the hall half bath and added some fun mirrors.  These mirrors started out a boring oil-rubbed bronze, but a quick spray of blue paint gives visitors a glimpse of the decor to come in the rest of the space.  (On a side note, I didn't realize I'd also painted my foot and had a brief panic when I thought I'd lost circulation in my leg later that evening!!)  I think it turned out really cool:
More modern touches were added to the half bath as well.  Those tiny spaces are really difficult to photograph!
    A fun, chevron temporary wallpaper was super-easy to install and adds a great punch to the wall behind the toilet.
 We still have more to go....waiting on some stools for the kitchen and a few more drapes for a dramatic wall of floor to ceiling panels.....hope to be able to share the finished product soon!

Is you home in need of Embellishing?
