Styling work in Cape Cod Home Magazine

Last June a did a small teaser blog about a home I styled on Cape Cod.

That home has been featured in the newest issue of Cape Cod Home Magazine.
here is the link to the full article with more pics:

The home was designed by kelly mcguill, whom you all know from my frequent mentions here; she is one amazingly talented gal.

Current Project, Before + After

Here is a sampling of a recently completed project.  Before and Afters are the greatest, aren't they?
This one was for a young couple moving out of the city and into their first suburban home with their very young son.

We started with a blank slate, as these before pics show. I was tasked with furnishing the family room and living room. 

The family room fabrics are durable and stain proof and can stand up to a one year old, and colorful, as befits this young, fun, modern family. 
There is a separate play area tucked behind the sofa.

Chairs upholstered in cowhide are indestructible and stylish. This couple have a great collection of ethnic carpets from their travels.

Since the living room was adjacent to the family room, they did not want to end up with two complete seating areas and a "formal" living room that they would seldom use, so we furnished it as more of a "library" space, with shelves for books and mementos, great comfortable chairs, and a dining height table for more books, or a place to have pre dinner cocktails when entertaining.
Or to have pre- dinner cocktails when NOT entertaining.
Or to have pre-dinner cocktails and no dinner.

The library is useful, welcoming, and cool.

A great hounds tooth check on the seat cushions. My Outlander moment.

(wink to anyone who knows me)

All of the beautiful photography (afters) was done by the lovely and talented Sarah of sarah winchester studios
