Master Bedroom

This spacious Master Bedroom was dull, uninspiring and with limited appeal.  It was “decorated” in all brown with mismatched lamps, white Venetian blinds, and no artwork on the walls. Clients still wanted brown tones so Marlena brought in a comforter that had a beautiful robin-egg blue color with a brown border with matching pillows and drapes. Beautifully framed photographs of the couple, candles, elegant lamps and artwork created a peaceful, lush and romantic setting.

Living Room

A fresh start in a newly renovated home gave way to a crisp, contemporary look. The challenge for Marlena was to have a relatively small living room look bigger. This was done by complimenting the gray and white walls with a Sheridan Gray and white area rug placed vertically to elongate the space. Vibrant-colored pillows on the charcoal gray sofa with silver and gold wall accessories finished the look. A bidding war brought huge profits!

A “Whatever” Room

This downstairs guest bedroom was not well-defined or developed by the homeowners. It became a “catch-all” room with mismatched furniture. After my consultation with the clients, they agreed that they did not have time or the imagination to “fix it up.” They decided that they wanted to create a luxurious guest bedroom that could ultimately be used as an Airbnb. A complete transformation occurred with rich brocade drapes, pillows, a rug, artwork and accessories.
