Melissa's House

Hey remember when I used to post on this blog? Yeah me too. Well I decided to dust off my blogger dashboard today and show you these before and afters from my friend and client, Melissa. I've posted about the progress at her house a couple times, including the last post about the art I made for her kitchen. Today I'm showing you the pictures from her family room. This room is huge! We worked on it for a few months, and it's about 99% done now. She just has a few more pillows to add, her mom is making the covers for her and they're not quite done. But as you will see, it has come a long way.

Here's how it looked when they moved in, lots of red, lots of floral curtains.

And here's how it looks now, from the same angle.

We stayed budget friendly by incorporating a lot of things that Melissa already owned like her apothecary jars and candle holders.

Picture of Melissa's parents, along with a bowl full of ceramic number balls representing Melissa's wedding date and state she was marrried, AZ of course. This moss bowl was probably one of my favorite finds for her room, it's from Home Goods.

Love it! Some of these pictures are by me, some by Melissa. Thanks Melissa!


  1. WOW!! It doesn't even look like the same room. It's amazing what paint can do! Great job, I love all the accessories!

  2. Love it! Can I ask where the forever will do print is from?

  3. The "forever" print is from www.avintageposter.com. They have a ton of beautiful prints. We had them make this custom print using song lyrics from one of Melissa's favorite songs. They're prices are very affordable.

  4. Wow, I love the art and accessories. It's really beautiful in there!

  5. looks so great. I am glad you are back... :) I just bought the same white frame that is hanging over the sofa from Pier 1 (the white design ones).

  6. This is fantastic...there are so many things I love I don't know where to even start. That moss bowl is so cute. She has a gorgeous house and you just made it even more awesome.

  7. My sister's baby shower was at Melissa's house and I have to say the space is even more beautiful in person. Wow. You guys did such a great job!

  8. What a huge difference! It looks like such an inviting space now. So many great details, but I think I like the number ball bowl the most. What a neat idea!

  9. Please come decorate my house! I seriously need you in my life! I just love your style.

  10. Love the rug! I noticed it's not the same west elm that you had previously posted, can you tell me where its from? Thanks!
