Each year several former clients reconnect with designers to bring a fresh, new look to their homes. It's always a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with these clients again.
A few months ago Donna Thomas and Jimmy Potter of DJ Interiors met with a home owner to discuss ways to bring her living area up to date. They discussed a number of options that would help provide the necessary changes to achieve the look she was going for. The goal was to transform her living space into a more contemporary one and use the colors that she felt most comfortable surrounded by.
The oatmeal Berber carpet was removed and hardwood flooring was installed to match and blend in with the existing hardwood in the dining and foyer area.
Donna Thomas and Jimmy Potter have created positive and comfortable atmospheres for numerous clients with DJ Interiors has been a staple in the Hot Springs area for 14 years. They offer complete design and decorating services including custom bedding, drapery, blinds and shades.
Sherwin Williams Sea Salt was the color of choice for the living area walls. The stained oak fire place mantle was too ornate and was replaced by a design that worked well with the new character of the room. The red fireplace bricks were painted a soft charcoal gray and sure white was chosen for the mantle and trim. These colors worked together to create a stunning Cape Cod look.
The heavy wood and brass ceiling fan was replaced by a lighter wood with brushed nickel accents to compliment the new color pallet.
A textured linen gray sofa with a tufted back and arms paired with two tone on tone English teal swivel chairs were brought together by toss pillows on the sofa in a swirl design consisting of gray, coral, teal and ivory.
A rich metallic leather club chair and ottoman rounded out the seating appointments.
An oval silver, distressed wood cocktail table along with a layered metal swirl sofa table with a glass top were unique pieces chosen to compliment the sofa and chairs.
The mantle now holds a display of art and a collection of sentimental pieces.
Accent pieces in shades of coral, teal and silver were strategically placed throughout the room.
The heavy TV armoire with side shelving units were replaced by a flat screen TV on the wall and a glass front cabinet underneath.
A designer mirror was placed over the sofa table, behind the sofa to reflect the overall beauty of the room.
The final touch was an area rug defining the space and adding an element of surprise. The cut hourglass design in the plush carpet was connected with large dots of bright coral.
The final result was a spectacular transformation and a very satisfied client.
Each situation is unique, every client is important and all jobs are equally attended to in every detail.
