Adding A Fresh Look

January 30, 2013



I am having the best time working with my new client, Shaunie. She wrote and asked for help with her entryway that she is trying to update and make beautiful:


She grew up near the ocean and loves the colors gray, white, green and blue. You can see that she incorporated these colors with her beautiful dolphin over her front door:


The color she had recently painted was perfect for the room. She had asked me about painting advice for her staircase:


She wanted to paint it black and was just looking for confirmation that it was a good idea:

I think it was a great idea! It looks beautiful so far!

Although we are not quite finished, here is a peek at her design board we put together so far:


Shaunie has been so enthusiastic throughout the project and it’s making the entire experience fun and I am having a great time helping her!

Would you like to see an after photo when she is through putting in all of the finishing touches? She is working so quickly and excitedly, she will be finished in no time! Right, Shaunie?

  1. Can’t wait to see the after photo! I am still working on my hall, using those same colors and was contemplating painting the railings black- gorgeous!! And, of course, I adore that dolphin : )

  2. Yes, I am motivated to get this done quickly. The sooner this is done, the sooner we can start in the next room!

    The hubby and I ripped out the beige carpet on the stairs. I can’t wait to paint them black and white!

    Kelly, thank you so much for giving me the confidence to paint the railings, interior door, and stairs black and for pushing out of my comfort zone to use some bold accent colors. It’s going to look amazing and I couldn’t have gotten here without you!
