Ready to see how Isela’s living room/dining room turned out? The design concept was revealed (including the design presentation boards) last week here. <- take a peek if you want to see how the apartment looked before my design was installed. The above photo shows the entryway to her now gorgeous apartment. Welcome to the tour …. a modern apartment infused with decor from my client’s travels:
Even the door knobs got a new look:
We placed the dining furniture near the kitchen. The sleek / slim design of the table and chairs makes the space feel spacious – even when placed next to a huge sofa (aka: design magic!):
I looove the wood grain in these chairs:
Meow <- that’s my tigress sound effect when viewing the ooh so pretty zebra stripe mini-side-table and pillow:
Often there are items that I buy for my clients that I craaave for myself (if I were to re-decorate my home for the 5th time). The raw edge side table in this living room is SUCH AN ITEM! Stunning. Here’s a closer look so you can oooh and aaaaah:
In case you are wondering what I am doing here ….
I love how you can see the stairs from the mirror (makes the space look ever larger than it is … which is a.w.e.s.o.m.e):
Did you notice the carved details in the wall mirror? This mirror was ROUND 2 … the original arrived with the glass damaged. The vendor replaced it and gave us the OK to dispose of the damaged one.
Closer view … Do you remember the original blue (waaay to small) pendant lamps in the kitchen? See here. The capiz shell rectangular pendant light fixture balances (in visual height + shape) the rectangular shape of the counter + upper cabinets … yep, I aim to balance EVERYTHING. This photo shows it lite up … let there be (ooh sooo gorgeous) light:
And here it is with the lamp turned off ….. yep, still gorgeous, right:
Cozy, comfy, leather chair – a perfect HUG shape chair:
