Pretty in Pink and Purple

A repeat client of mine who originally met me through the Ellicott City Decorator Showhouses, asked me for my recommendation for a designer to help redecorate her family room.  Of course I recommended Paula Henry of Simply Put Interiors, the designer with whom I’ve painted countless Decorator Showhouses.  Paula transformed her family room into a jaw dropping gorgeous pink and purple Hollywood Regency-esque retreat!

Before: (I had recently glazed the fireplace about 3 months ago…)

And after…POW!

A close up of the fireplace I redid and the wall with the custom cut stencils I made that reflect the fabric on the chairs:

A railing was replaced with a custom-built bookcase by Summerhill Cabinets.  I woodgrained the top in a marquetry design with a black inlay.  The client reads extensively and Paula thought it would be a great idea to have a place for her books.

Here’s the before:

And After:

And…

A tiny little update on a very tedious project that I’m doing at my studio, getting ready for my Open House-Grand Opening-Partay!

(Nevermind the paint on my hands.)
