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.
