Liveable Elegance

We recently finished a project of a sitting room and living room that brought two rooms to life!

Bella B Home offers six decorating packages. For this particular client they decided to go for our Never-Lift-A-Finger Concierge Package! Part of this package includes a free consultation, presentation of space layouts including; 3D models, furniture selection within the clients budget, window treatment fabric shopping, accessorizing, shopping, & staging!

When we first got to our clients home we saw a family who is very warm and filled with love! Within minutes we knew that we wanted to work with a family just like this! They had a sitting room and a dining room that they wanted to make into a space where family and friends could be comfortable but also a place where parents could feel like adults in their home. With busy work schedules, children and a dog we knew we wanted to bring out their personality within the room but also give them a piece of adult heaven within the two rooms!

Before they had some window treatments, white walls, and were using the space to work on other projects within the house.

Our next step is to go back to the office and come up with an initial color theme! We decided on browns, creams, tans, greys, with a dash of a breathe of fresh air!

Next comes the space planning and 3D layouts on how we believe the room should look and feel.

In this process, which is really just “ideas” so we know the size of furniture that can actually fit in the room. We usually do a few versions of the rooms; put them up on some cork boards and after a few days of walking past them, we pick which one we HAVE to HAVE! In this particular case we knew we wanted a great adult sitting area but furniture that was KID FRIENDLY! We also knew we wanted to find a dining room set that was not common and different then what is in every other person’s house, yet still traditional for big family dinners!

We usually take about 2-3 weeks to shop, find options and pull our entire game plan together which resulted in these presentation boards! We shopped color on walls, chairs, rugs, cocktail table, side tables, round ottomans (particularly for the kids to lay on) and a great storage unit for the sitting room. For the dining room we found an amazing Hooker Furniture set that was to die for, but added our own twist with customized chairs of fabrics we knew our client HAD TO HAVE!!! We also framed out both windows and shopped for fabric and hardware to pull both rooms together! ON top of the two rooms, our client also asked for just “ideas” for their two story living room as well, so we pulled together some of our favorite inspirational ideas to share with them!

Once hired, that is when the fun begins!!! We got to work as soon as our client was ready! We went to check out all of the furniture in person to assure they LOVED everything, which they did! THEN accessorizing all the final touches begin! We found so many fun pieces to accessorize with and knew it would be great in the room.

Back at our clients home…Painting BEGINS! It really is amazing what paint can do to any room, not only do these two rooms look bigger but they are warm and all of a sudden very cozy and comfy!

Window Treatments are next on the list! We chose to customize the window treatment so we could pick the fabric, the rod and finials!

While waiting for the furniture and the window treatments to be done, our client wanted us to spruce up their kitchen! We just added some great fun accent pieces to counter tops and walls and a play on of one of their favorite pastimes…cooking! We found a few great salt and pepper shakers, cool rustic long wood piece for bananas and lemons, a great off the wall holding rack for olive oils and vinegar and a great way to display wine glasses!



A week later, the time had arrived!!!

It was time for all the furniture to be delivered and to stage the home!

Walls of Art!

If you love a wall of wall art, you will LOVE this!

One of our clients that we are still working on wanted to use photos that she has taken over the years and display them in a way that she would be proud of and also wanted to add in a punch of wallpaper on just one wall!

What looks like it was a lot of planning and effort, really was simple and easy!

We just needed to find the right wall, pick the right photos, and then create the fun!

When doing a wall art it is first best to decide what you want to get out of the space. What types of photos do you want to display? What color theme? Do you want to add mirrors or other pieces of art to the mix?

Below are the two walls we had to work with….

We decided on a Black, White, Grey theme for the walls!

First, we found a really great wallpaper that would take an older looking staircase and make it look brand new!

Next, we took her existing mirrors that were going up her wall and wanted to add them into the mix of frames. We took a trip to Home Goods and found all of these great frames. We decided to go with black and just one white! We added rope to give it a rustic look and too add texture to the walls.

We also add in some fun silver ottomans to round the wall out, some existing photos, a piano and a yellow metal chair!

Here are some of the afters….

Before & After: Cream & Navy with a pop of Rust!

Jump into Spring with an updated look from Bella B Home!

I get so many questions on how we come up with ideas for Bella B Home and what the steps are to making a successful room.

Here is a small example of how we can bring life to any room in your home!

After meeting with clients for the first time, we like to take time and come up with a full presentation to show the client. In that presentation we bring boards filled with furniture that fit into budget, a ton of inspiration, fabrics for either window treatments and/or custom furniture, and overall layouts/3D plans!

Here is a sneak peak of an idea we had for this particular room. This client wanted new window treatments so we also gave a few ideas on what we thought would be a great option in the room.

Next comes SHOPPING! Who doesn’t love to go shop for a new room once a plan is involved.

We decided that the client wanted to go with neutral colors, navy, silver, golds, browns and a pop of rust!

After shopping at various stores, fabric mill house for windows and for custom chairs we ended up with a room that is now used a great gathering place for their family!
