New Home Gets Styled

I got the call to decorate this home while the builders were still putting in the finishing touches. The homeowner already knew she would need help. Those beautiful built-ins weren't going to style themselves! 

Those ceilings are stunning! And yes, lots of shelves, but I was excited!!

So I started planning and shopping. I knew I needed some art to pull this big space together. I also needed more furniture. The homeowner wanted to keep her existing sofas, but we did order matching accent chairs to balance the space and add more seating. A big rug to anchor the space was also a must!

Move in day. Pre-styling.

And done! The art from Minted gave us the color palette for the room. I also pulled the sofa away from the window and cozied everything up a little bit.

Shelves require a lot of accessories. I always bring more than I need! It's all about interest, balance, and height. I often take a picture of the styled shelves as I go to see what I need to add or take away.  I love how these turned out!
