Before and After

Family room goes from dated and dull to warm and inviting

A condo in Palm Beach was desperate for a more coastal theme. The owners had moved from the mountains and had old leather furniture that overwhelmed the space. We lightened up the room with sturdy sunbrella fabrics and lifted the ceilings by using the same colon on the walls, trim and ceiling. The owners are avid sailors and we made a collage of vintage sepia colored photos of classic sailing yachts. Sculptures of fish and coral added huge personality.

Megan’s room transforms into a calm and bright sanctuary

Megan wanted her bedroom to feel like a coastal inspired sanctuary. By giving Megan a blue and white color palette with hints of green, and by adding subtle texture here and there, we were able to capture the relaxed beach theme she wanted. The neutral and textured rug replicates the look of sand, and the soft blue textiles mirror ocean and sky tones, transporting Megan straight to the beach when she walks in her room. To add an intriguing element to the space, the tall bed posts were the perfect focal point, not to mention, they make Megan feel like a princess.

Coastal and spa-like living room transformation

Vavaroom chose a light blue color palette to open up this tired space. By using the colors of clouds and sky, the space expanded dramatically. We lightened the walls and changed the floor material to a light wood color. The drapes not only softened the space, but also gave the room some height. Hickory Chair makes the most comfortable sofas and we found an amazingly soft fabric for family gatherings and snuggling. Poufs on the floor add extra seating, while coffee and airy side tables keep the space light.

Living room goes from dark and cluttered to bright and clean

This customer wanted a calming palette that fit a more masculine farmhouse. Vavaroom chose a soft gray palette and layered texture such as sisal, leather, and suede to add interest. A free form, over-sized coffee table in slabs old walnut allows for easy entertaining. A small petrified wood side table became a great conversation piece and more windows brought nature into the home.
