Parley Project Reveal

Our client needed help making her home feel welcome and put together. She and her husband couldn't decide on what to do with the room right off the entry. At first, they considered a formal dining room in the space, but it was a little tight and a little far off of the kitchen to be a dining room. Plus, they had a beautiful piano and cute cabinet for sheet music that they were keeping. We decided the room would function best as an informal sitting room where she could receive her guest, enjoy the large windows, and have her kids do their piano lessons.

Yesterday we showed you the webisode and today we're giving you a house tour!

With four kids in the house, we started with family-friendly furniture — leather sofasturdy chairs, a lacquered seagrass cloth coffee table, and our St. Cloud Rug.

There was a very ornate chandelier that was better suited for a dining room. We switched it out for a light that feels a little more like a sitting room.

We love the natural texture in this coffee table! We kept with the natural theme going by adding these white sea bursts, sea glass beads, and bright peonies in these sky gray vases

The molding in this room is stunning, but the ledges are deep and make hanging artwork a challenge. We chose short artwork for the piano and layered artwork elsewhere to incorporate the high, deep ledges.

Our client's entry is too large to not furnish, but a little narrow for large furniture. We started with a large antique rug that fills the space and makes the home feel complete. A bench made filling the stairway easier since it could extend to the lower stairs without covering the banister.

For the entry way, we created two drop zones. The first was a seated drop zones where you can take off your shoes. Throwing in a natural nesting basket is always a good idea because it looks good, and works as storage! The floor lamp is a classic piece our client can use for years.

Next, we did a standing drop zone. This is where she can drop off keys, check herself in the mirror, etc. We even added some decorative black and white storage boxes that she can stash knickknacks in. We balanced out the gold details in the mirror and zig zag lamp with this silver koon. We put it all on one of our favorite pieces of furniture ever — the Harper Chest!
