Torri and Rob are very near and dear to me and I felt so privileged to have met them! They were excited and enthusiastic about the changes and the everything I suggested, which of course, made me love the project and the challenges and I was almost sad once it was done.
But they moved not long after we were done and I got to repurpose almost everything they had again, giving it a totally new look and feel, by changing the accent color percentages!
Since I am not a turn-key designer, I always try and work with what is already in the house and then just add to it as the budget allows. Using color in an effective creative way, is my ultimate goal.
When they called me to come and help them with their house in Shoreview Overlook, the request was to “pull it all together”
As you can see in the ”Before” picture below, there were some colors already to work with, but as she said, it felt unfinished and not well-designed. Since the walls and trim were painted in gray very recently, changing the wall color was not an option. I didn’t have a problem with the wall color though, it was neutral enough.
