New Interior Design Client, Before and Afters

For the past 2 months I have been working with a new Interior Design client and this past Sunday it finally was install day! Before we talk about this house I will share with you all a little of how and what I do. 
I specialize in using things you already have in your home in a new way while bringing in new items to make those items shine. Sure, I would love to start from the ground up but for most people (myself included) that is not realistic. I come in with fresh eyes and a plan to turn your house into a HOME.

I will meet you discuss your wants/needs and tour your home. Then I will come back with my design boards to present to you! You can see this families boards HERE If needed be I will make changes and once we decide we move forward with a plan. 
Once everything arrives and I have shopped for all your new stuff install day is here.... AND I kick you out of your home for 7+ hours! LOL

Let's see the BEFORES:

Living Room

 Home Office
 Hallway and might I add the client made this and I wanted to make sure to turn this into a focal piece!
 Guest room (and yes, I just caught them on a messy day)
 Now let's see the AFTER:
Literally by moving around the furniture in the office it looks TWICE as big! I kept it clean and simple while highlighting their memories. A rug helps ground the desk and gives it it's own space.
 They had a HUGE long hallway so I created a "landing" space. A little vignette of a place to sit, store and check yourself before you head out for the day!
 If you remember these painting created by the couple were just laying on top of the shelves in the office and I love personal touches so I gave them their very own gallery wall. Plus there is room to add on.......
 OMG first of all look at their cutie pie dog Wren! She looks like a model in the guest room! I wanted to completely change the look of this room and make it bright and inviting. The Aspens above the bed and the framed Rocky Mountains print on the wall play homage to our beautiful state.
 My clients love maps so I added touches of them throughout the house. I wanted a huge print to anchor this table....
 And also by adding these awesome metal bins under the table it gives it more depth... functional and stylish!
I am SO PROUD of this, in one of the bins I got vintage maps cu tin 1/2 and rolled to fill with. It looks so cool and also is a play off their love of maps! When this came together I was giddy with excitement!
If you remember their living room had a weird blank space and I needed to add height to the room so I found this awesome ladder shelf that was also a great price! On that bottom shelf I brought in more of those vintage maps to tie the rooms together with. 
 I love creating gallery wall, this makes the house feel like a home full of memories and it is also so chic!
 Look at how that new rug brightens the room and adds warmth! LOVE
 Lastly the dining room... we added modern curtains, those great Ikat prints to tie in the blues plus the huge fork and spoon!!! They did not have a dining room rug which is a must.... it perfectly completes the room!

Right before they came back I was like crap, what if they don't love it but they did! And in fact the next morning I got the sweetest text from them again telling me how in love with everything they are!

March Madness

March was really good to me, 2 closings for me was a very exciting MARCH MADNESS!
You know with Real Estate you can do like 20 small steps and only HOPE that they will amount to something substantial...
My first closing was with my client Tracy and this is Tracy during her final walk thru with some fun kitchen stuff I got her for her first home! Tracy was a wonderful client who knew exactly what she wanted and made everything so easy! Congrats Tracy!
Last Thursdays closing was very special to me because I got to help my friend Kay find her first home! Kay is so kind and I loved walking her thru this process and I also thankful to her. When a friend has your back during the stressful time of buying a home it makes everything so much better!
 Here is my cheesy picture I took at the closing office! LOL! I Loved creating closing gifts for my clients, I really wanted them to light up when they saw it!
Currently I am on the prowl for my next client, is it you? Now is such a wonderful time around Colorado to buy or sell and I would love to help take the stress off of you and walk you thru each step of your closing!! You can reach me at

I've Got The Blues....

My In-laws are moving the furniture in their living room here to their Colorado home, which means NEW stuff at home! I was so excited when my Mother-in-law asked me to design for her. They are currently repainting all the living room walls grey which flows into their kitchen. The rug in their kitchen has tans, grey and some shades of blue so that was my inspiration for the living room which is open to the Kitchen! She wanted a rug, storage ottoman and other than that was open which was fun for me to have FREE reign!

I am so excited about this and I LOVE LOVE adding blues into the living room, if I was going to ever re-do my color palette I would do Blues with shades of pink! (For real) 

I found this Restoration Hardware knock off couch and fell in love! It has gotten so many great reviews too which is a plus! It is the perfect centerpiece for the Living Room!

Garcia Deep Hand-Tufting Rolled-Arm Sofa, Beige

Let me walk you thru this board:
* On the mantle over the fire place is where those 2 Blue prints will go and not hung just set on the mantle and then the metal "S" will also go on the mantle along with a framed family photo!
* That rug is PURE perfection and I am obsessed and the ottoman is storage!
* The beautiful leather chair is a recliner but it is a bit more subdued than others and that will go to the side of the couch facing the TV (for my MIL to know)
* Those metal baskets are actual end tables! You can put magazines or books inside them but they are storage and the wood top are perfect to add some texture to the room! And that metal burst will look so cute on top!
* Lamps are a MUST and this lamp is great!
* Lastly the pillows will add in accent colors and warm up the couch along with the throw blanket!
Savage Living Room

Savage Living Room by nsavage featuring metal figurines
This is an idea in case they wanted to switch out the tv stand and I LOVE it! The boxes open in different configurations and is made to house a DVR and wires!

 Wall decor, Let me walk you thru this....
* Since they have a place in Colorado I wanted to bring a little bit of Colorado to them! The canvas of the Aspen Birches will bring in color to room and match the pillows!
* The mirror and arrow will add some fun elements mixed in with family photos that we will frame!
* Lastly the picture of the Georgetown RR is a vintage post card that will be fun to frame and then the picture of the homes along the Georgetown lake will add color to match the room! They are memories but in a vintage/artful way and I LOVE IT!
Savage Gallery Wall

Lastly, I picked out these curtains for the patio doors and they are sheer so light can come out and be seen out! Then she didn't ask me to work on her eat-in dining table but I did anyways! LOL
* She had a wooden table and 1 idea to modernize it is to switch out to these fun metal chairs!
* I picked out the blue placemats to match the kitchen rug and bring the blue from the living room into the kitchen!
* The cotton from Magnolia Market will be a great centerpiece and those metal servers will look great in the kitchen!
