Earlier this year, a wonderful client asked me to makeover the living and television rooms in her summer lake home located in upstate New York. We had new wide plank wood flooring installed and I’ve been working non stop to prepare it for her spring arrival this Memorial Day weekend. A few pieces of furniture, accessories and artwork are still on their way but even though it isn’t one hundred percent complete she is ready to enjoy the new space in her home and it’s extraordinary lake view. Here are the befores and afters.
The living room was decorated twenty five years ago and needed some TLC. My client loves to entertain and this large open space leading out to the lakeside of her property is the perfect place for her to relax with family and friends.
She wanted to keep the rattan furniture in her television room as it works nicely for casual entertaining but the room needed a few touches to make it warm and inviting.
Of course a little extra help from my three year old son Giuseppe came in handy on a few occasions.
The absolutely stunning lake view was our inspiration to look for beautiful blues and greenery to breathe life into these two great rooms.
While we are still waiting on a few more pieces to come in, I think this already lovely home became even more beautiful and ready for a summer of entertaining and relaxing on the water.
I hope my client enjoys her new space as much as I enjoyed pulling it together for her.
