Because Therapy's Expensive
So, here's the way our most favorite projects go:
Client: Hi Shauna! I want you to come do my living room.
SGD: Great! Yes, we'd love to, when can we meet?
Client: Here's my dilemma, I love your work, do your magic.
SGD: Here's what we want to do, OK with you?
Client: Perfect, when can you start?
SGD: Ready to install, you are going to love it
Client: I can't wait, when can I see?
SGD: What do you think? Do you love it?
Client: OMG! This is amazing, I love it so much! Thank you!
3 MONTHS LATER
Client: OK, I've saved up some more money, can you come do our bedroom?
We LOVE when this happens. And such was the case when a close friend of Shauna's bought an AMAZING MCM home in the Ridglea Hills neighborhood of Fort Worth. One of those homes you drive by and say, "this is what MCM is all about". Definitely the coolest house on the block. And what really got the team excited was A. The original terrazzo floors and B. The atrium in the middle of the house.
Our first project was the living/dining room. A wide open space that gave us plenty of flexibility for furniture layout, we anchored the leather sectional with a great rug to create the main sitting area. The niche area between the bookshelves was a perfect place to add a console table and accent chairs that can be pulled in for additional seating. Vintage lamps were updated with new shades to keep with the mid-century aesthetic.

To define a dining space, we hung two pendants under the dining table situated against the wall. Then added chairs from West Elm to the existing table and bench. Artwork from Captain Casual hangs behind the bench, and a bar cart in the corner houses vintage glassware.

In the powder bath, Shauna was inspired by some graffiti art wallpaper that she fell in love with and hand drew on the walls with a paint pen. The walls were given a painted wainscoting in a bold blue to provide contrast. Yes it took forever (7 hours!), and yes, she had hand cramps for days. But, the client loved it and she'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Our most recent project in the home was the master bedroom. The West Elm Platform bed was new so we worked with that and added new bedding, a wallpapered feature wall, this amazing vintage Moroccan rug and new bedside tables. The client also had some vintage chests that we incorporated in to the room for more storage. Lastly, the shoji style sliding doors were painted on the inside with a hot cherry red. You can see a glimpse of the atrium across the hall from the bedroom, what an amazing view to wake up to!
