My client requested that I turn a 50's style rancher into a modern, yet comfortable, space for a family of four. They had purchased the house the year before and wanted to update their large family space with a touch of mid-century style.

I started with a new color palette for them with greens, browns and cream. Painted one long wall a not-so-timid green and two other walls in a two-tone tan 20" high horizontal stripes. Designed custom window treatments in a large scale pattern with a bold chocolate ban on the bottom. Brought in new lighting to complement the clean lines of the furniture. And, topped it all off with pops of orange and accessories found at the local flea market. The end result made the client say "I'm getting a little misty, it's so perfect."
