Some of my favorite projects over the past few years have been those that my friends hire me for. Of course that’s in part because I love corresponding and meeting up with them, but also because it’s always easier for me to piece things together for those that I know really well. When I have a good read on their style and personality, my brain knows exactly where to go. One of my good friends from our years in Hoboken now resides in a beautiful home just outside of Boston. Although I’ve only been to visit once, we managed to tackle a dining room makeover for her family across the miles. I didn’t have professional photos to share from this project, but I’m hoping that you’ll enjoy these iphone shots just as well!
With a playful and vibrant vibe to their home, I knew without a doubt that we could take their blank slate and turn it into something stunning. She was open to every suggestion I gave, from the board and batten to a bold wallpaper and even a pop of color on the ceiling.
We threw around a handful of wallpapers and she eventually settled on this one by Hyggee & West. We then requested to have the ceiling color matched to the wallpaper and I couldn’t be happier that she took this final step which makes such a huge impact in the room. After all, the ceiling is merely a fifth wall!
I enjoyed seeing this project come together and I love how some color and a few details can really bring a room to life! Thanks to my girlfriend for inviting me onto this project. I was thrilled to be a part of it <3
