BEFORE AND AFTER PART 2




Burrrr…..I feel bad complaining because after all I live in Atlanta not Buffalo and these are unusual weather times.  But cold is cold dammit.

It's hard getting in the car with 4 layers on….scarf….hat….gloves a purse and trying to buckle up then take off one glove to operate cell phone…..AND then try to get out after dropping 1 glove that was in my lap on the ground in the parking lot…getting tangled up in the scarf along with ripping the iPhone charger out and forgetting to turn off the car.  

Give me summer please.

I have said this before but sometimes while working on a project  I become immune to it.  I see the work it took to put it together…..but maybe not the finished product.  It's only after posting the final images and hearing from all of you that I think "Oh goodie….I did good".

Thanks for the love :)

Here are the final shots.

Before
This is a keeping area off the kitchen.  Not big enough for a sofa or anything but perfect for 2 Lee Industries chair 1/2's.

After

The Dash and Albert indoor/outdoor rug will hold up nicely along with the Sunbrella fabric on the chairs!

I took this one before styling….so you could see how comfy these look…big enough to curl up in front of the fire and doze off:)

Before of dining area

After
I used the same rug here also.  We decided to just paint the wood chairs to be cost effective and I added 2 Ikea slipcovered parsons at each end.

Cute little piece of art from Scott's.

Before of the foyer
After the Thibaut wallpaper and changing out the light fixture.


After
More vintage nautical art…

It was quite a search for the few items in the foyer.  I had to find a really narrow table to fit on the side wall.  Since the one I found was painted then I felt like the mirror and planter should be neutral.

One more shot

Many of you asked about the paint color [which was already there] and I think it is Sherwin Williams Comfort Gray 6205.

I have to tell you how much fun it was working on this project.  Every time I asked her about something she said "whatever you think"…..gotta love that right?  It made shopping for her so easy!

So there you have it…..guess I better get my butt in gear so I have some good things to post about in 2014!

Busy week with the Mart and Scott's.

Sheriky freaky deaky.

Sherry - you always do good. It all looks great and I'm loving how you transformed the foyer.

Too funny w/the cold, the glove, the phone, etc. My son is in Ottawa Ca and he called me last night and told me 3 different times it's booger freezing cold (gross,sorry). I had to keep telling him I believed him - I grew up near Syracuse. You're right - cold is cold.

Pat@BPM said...

It's all gorgeous, Sherry. I think you may have solved my hearth room dilemma. After 10 years we decided to have a TV in there. Well...the chairs are mismatched and a sofa is too large and I didn't know what to do until I saw your solution. I am liking those chair 1/2s. I am going to delve into this idea, I do believe. Thank you!

Cathy Wall said...

So comfy and easy to live in, just the right the "Sherry touch" to enliven these spaces. Go girl! And I am freezing my patootie off here in Wisco with sub zero temps, not to mention wind chills , so no whining from you, K?!!!!

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

I need you to come to my house girl! Everything looks beautiful. I loved your feature on House of Turquoise today too!

And yes it is FREEZING! So excited for warmer temps today!

Beth of designPOST Interiors said...

You should be crowned the neutrals queen. Nobody mixes em like you baby! And I also hate the cold and all the layers. Don't even get me started on static.

I am in love with the Thibault wall covering. They are one of my favorite wallpaper companies, classic beautiful designs. You did a fantastic job on this house. Every nook and cranny is spot on!!

Kim said...

It all looks fabulous, but the Thibault paper made such a graphic and amazing impact! Beautifully done and yes, what a dream client!! You go girl! xo

Simply LKJ said...

Love everything! Those chairs are amazing.

Judy said...

You are so good at getting the right amount of painted surfaces vs. wood, the right amount of white vs. tints, the right amount of pattern vs. plain, the right amount of glass/shiny/hard vs. soft/baskets/fabrics/throws, etc. The elements and the proportions of those elements that you use are just so satisfying. Gosh, I just love your rooms so much. So lovely.

Catie said...

BEAUTIFUL!! The chairs look so cozy and your styling is amazing of course. I always see that cute art when i'm at scotts. Loved seeing it in a DR.

Nancy said...

you can do no wrong. these pictures are proof. love. it. all.

Susan M said...

where did that table in the foyer come from? I love it and would love something like that in my house! And what a wonderful idea for that hearth room!

Rachel Scarvey said...

It's all beautiful. We moved into a "new to us" house 2 years ago and we vowed that after the deep chocolates and rich saturated colors of our old house, we are going to keep it neutral. The walls the furniture light and airy and so on. I love all the new things you added to the space. I would even love to have the old furniture and light fixtures to lighten up my house. They didn't work for your client but they would work great for me! HA!

Heather Peterson said...

beautiful! Your photos always look so professional! I need your secrets.

Maryanne The Garden said...

Great transformation, I actually had to look twice before realizing it was actually the same space.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I love love love your work. The end. And be sure to check out K. Hall at the mart this weekend. They are a local favorite of mine.

Crysty said...

Such beautiful wallpaper! I have also had difficulty finding a smaller hall table. Yours would work in my space! Any chance I could find it in the St. Louis area?

Anonymous said...

Looks fabulous!!! Where in the world did you find what looks like a SQUARE rug for the foyer??? Where, where, where, where did you find it? I have been looking for something like that for 6 months!
Thanks!
Nancy

Lauren (The Cottage Mix) said...

Beautiful job, Sherry! Your client must be thrilled with the results. I love the wallpaper in the foyer. You've inspired me to put wallpaper somewhere in my house!

And yes, it's cold...even in Florida!

mrs. V | Chez V said...

Judas Priest. Your skillz know no bounds.

LUCY WILLIAMS said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the seating vignette-and adore the pillows. nice work!

Lesa Bell said...

That gorgeous foyer may help me get over my fear of wallpaper. Love all the natural elements there too.

The enchanted home said...

Holy moly..you are GOOD! VERY good. I love the transformation...feels so fresh and alive, we too are having extreme cold..I am sick of it already and have only been home 24 hours:) Happy 2014 to you!

Karen at Home Sweet Hollywood said...

It's like I'm a 14 year old boy...the whole time I'm reading and looking at the pictures, in my mind I'm saying "duuude!".

Each picture....duuude. So good.

Yes, you did good!! xo

stephanie at Stephanie Kraus Designs said...

so pretty - I cant stand it. absolute perfections as always!

Henhurst Interiors said...

It really is a fabulous transformation, Sherry. The area by the fireplace looks so cozy and the front hall is perfection.
Happy new year!

Sara Lorton said...

Sherry, you are an absolute hoot. :) Each space is beautifully done without looking overtly decorated. You do it with such ease, great job lady :)

alysa said...

Another success! It looks great

Loi Thai, Tone on Tone said...

Another fabulous Sherry project!! Love the color palette! Those gorgeous big comfy chairs....with a glass of wine....and a big fire = :)

An Urban Cottage said...

That keeping room really rocks. I want to do that to my dining room once the kitchen is done. Also love the vintage nautical art and turquoise bottles. Super photographs too.

Barbara Moore said...

Love love love love. Where did you get that perfectly gray, small table? I see you use Lee Industries for most of your upholstery. How would an average non-designer type person purchase from Lee? Love love love. Love. Everything.

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Sherry, I love the wallpaper and the Lee Industry chairs....everything looks great!

stephanie at Stephanie Kraus Designs said...

One last but very important thank you for adding me to your blog roll. My traffic is soaring! Thanks for doing that! xo

Leah said...

it all looks gorgeous, but the entry knocks my socks off! well done lady!

Holly Gruszka said...

WHEW! Gorgeous! And huh, Comfort Grey, is that right? It really reads a beautiful light blue in a few of those first photos. And those chairs look so incredibly comfortable - and amazing how the scale of those chairs increased dramatically. That space handles it really well. Rock on Sherry Hart!

Melissa W. said...

This post has completely inspired me! I have been struggling with my new house (70's ranch) paint color in the "formal living room. Bought Comfort Gray this morning and LOVE it! Just ordered this same rug in your post also! Thank you!!! I have tried Revere Pewter, Agreeable Gray, and Palladian blue. LOVE Comfort Gray! Painting the foyer Sea Salt (one shade lighter than CG)!

HI Sherry-
Could you tell me the stain color they used on the floors? It is a great shade. Not too dark....

Thanks!
Tracey

Kallee said...

It looks as though someone has already asked, but I didn't find your answer. Would you mind sharing the name/pattern/color of the wallpaper you selected? So lovely!

SHERRY HART said...

That is great! So glad this post could inspire!

Hello! Just stumbled upon your blog. Could you tell me what sunbrella fabric you used on your chairs? So pretty!

Unknown said...

CAn you tell me where you got the light fixture above the dining room table and in the entry way?

Jennifer Mendelsohn said...

Just coming back to say that after seeing this post, I ordered the same Thibaut wallpaper for my powder room. They just installed in and I love it. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Patti O'Donnell said...

can you tell us what pattern the wallpaper is? Jennifer you mentioned you just ordered, can you share? Thanks.

Jennifer said...
