Westlake Lake House Remodel
What do you do first when the end result needs to be a Labor of Love (and patience :-))
Start by ripping out everything blah! 😉
Then introduce remarkable focal points in each area that capture the personality of the homeowners – An elegant vintage chandelier that draws the gaze when sitting in the parlor, baroque hand made paintings that add a French colonial charm to the dining room, and a marble fireplace with a pattern that just takes the viewer’s breath away and add glamour to the living room.
The next thing was to brighten up the entire space with lighter-toned color at the same time creating a rustic and comfortable decor overall.
Once the focal points and the overall theme were in place, it was time to accessorize and dramatize. Shag rugs were picked (even before the sofas ;-)) to ensure the family dog had a cozy spot to snuggle in. A large area rug with hand-selected accessories in the cabinets around the fireplace finishes out a gorgeous and welcoming room. A pop of color never hurts when done elegantly and the dining area chairs around a sturdy round oak table do just that.
A lot of time, effort and of course, patience went into this project. But we are so pleased that the end result is a balanced, harmonious space that reflects the personality of the people who use it.
