Client Reveal: A Natural Beauty

January 21, 2018

I’m super stoked to be sharing a client project with you today with the reveal of this boho-inspired, esthetician treatment room.

What do you get when you sprinkle a touch of glam over a solid foundation of spa-like zen? You get a natural beauty of a room. That’s what you get.

You see…the space isn’t trying too hard to be cool or elegant, because it just effing is.

Before:

And while the essence of the space was always beautiful (the room is located in a mansion built in 1919, for Christ’s sake), we simply had to strip away the dark and dated elements which prevented it from radiating the natural beauty it always possessed.

Beige walls, heavy drapery and dark furniture was not doing this space any favors. And in my useless opinion, it should be considered illegal to cover perfectly good hardwood flooring with carpet. Why??!!

With all of the windows in this room (natural light), there is no need for such a fluorescent atrocity of a light .

The poor, pitiful space just needed a breathe of fresh air.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again: never underestimate the power of paint.

The walls were painted in Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore. While it is hard to tell from photos, Swiss Coffee is actually a warmer white, but it looks so soft and inviting in person and allows the gorgeous millwork (which is a little more white) to pop.

After ripping up the carpet, a happy surprise of hardwood flooring was revealed. All it needed was some sanding and staining.

In terms of the actual decor, this beautiful kilim rug  (which you can get here )  was the first design choice we made (“we” meaning the client, who is actually my fabulous mama, and I). I also encouraged pops of brass, and I am so happy my special client obliged. Not only does the brass warm up the all-white space, it allows for some understated glam.

These fabulous chairs are probably one of my favorite components in the space. They were purchased at a local store in Chattanooga called Nadeau.

When it came to art work, budget was a major buzz-kill. All of the selections we loved were simply not financially feasible. Luckily, I get my artistic/DIY gifts from my mother and she was willing to think outside of the box.This framed masterpiece was actually a home-decor “hack” painted by mother.

Let me explain…

While hunting for large art work at a reasonable price, we found an over-sized,  gold-framed canvas on clearance for $50. Unfortunately, the original art work was , in my opinion , very generic.  So,  I encouraged my mother to put her artistic skills to use and paint over the original painting.

Not too shabby, huh?

Adhering to a reasonable budget, the curtains came from Ikea and we simply spray-painted the existing rods.

I am so pleased with how the space came together. Photos don’t really do it justice.

And so you see, even natural beauties can benefit from a few cosmetic enhancements every now and then. In fact, if you live near the Chattanooga area and need a few enhancements yourself ( eyelash extensions, microblading, laser treatments, chemical peels, etc), hit me up and I can give you my mama’s information.

    1. Erica the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Your mother is very talented, just like her daughter. When I first saw that piece I thought what a lovely painting, it really pulls the whole room together. It’s great that you are not afraid to redo an old painting that was not giving you good vibes. This room is full of happy, cheery vibes. And its nice that you get to work with your mom!

    1. The chairs are the best pieces here but you don’t say anything about them! If they are not one offs from Home Goods would you share the source? Plus… are they comfortable?? Thanks!

    1. This looks absolutely amazing girl!! I love all of the details from the paint color, the area rug (I have that one too!), those gorgeous chairs, and the stunning gold accents! You nailed it girl!

    1. I just love how you got your own unique style. You seem so “free” in your choice of decor. It is nice to see someone stay as true to oneself as you do. I get so inspired when reading your blog posts. And if I lived closer I would simply have had to try out your mum’s new treatment room ❤

    1. Wow, this is gorgeous, and such a dramatic transformation! I love the rug, and I can’t believe your mom painted the artwork herself- she’s so talented! Love it.
