Home Makeover – Before and After

Today I’m so excited to finally share a home design project I worked on last year. I’ve always loved Interior Design and when I started this blog it was actually to focus on two topics, fashion and Interiors. The Fashion part sort of took over but I’ve never actually stopped doing projects on the side for friends and family and clients I found through personal referrals. In partnership with my sister-in-law (former pro interior designer) I’m going to officially launch a new Design Service (very soon!), but we have already started taking projects for 2016 so if you are interested in working together, please send an email to zahra@lovezahra.com with the subject: Interior Design, and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

This project was especially fun because the clients had pretty much a blank slate to start with. That means we were able to help select everything from floor to ceiling, literally, from rugs such as sheep skin rugs, to chandeliers and everything in between. They had recently moved in to a beautiful new home and had some basic furniture that they carried over from their last home, but the place lacked warmth, and any kind of cohesive design or style. Also, the clients had held on to some furniture that really didn’t fit their current personal style, and they had accents like rugs and curtains that didn’t quite fit the new larger space.

I would describe the final result as a gorgeous transitional home design with a warm neutral color palette accented with some bright pops of color.

Please feel free to comment or email me and let me know your thoughts, hope you enjoy!
