I have a massive soft spot for all things ‘before and after’ – seeing anything being transformed from the uggers version to thing-of-beauty makes me very happy indeed. So I was totally inspired when I came across this property in Traditional Home designed by Amy Morris.
BEFORE (yuck – I don’t even want to enlarge the photo, it’s offending my eyes)
AFTER (*swoon*) – that is one statement entrance piece if ever I’ve seen one…
Just pause for a minute everyone – can we please take a moment to appreciate the beauty of these armchairs… The marble fireplace/gold statement mirror combo is also super duper.
AFTER – I am going gaga over the slightly distressed mirror work and chandy.
I am absolutely LOVING this kitchen – the wooden beams, the Eastern lanterns, the crisp white cabinetry (drool).
Gorgeous gorgeous fabric on the Roman blind – I love the colour paired with the bed frame and the wall gallery, and the contrast with the whites.
AFTER – very bold use of wall colour but it works so well here with the window treatment and the coordinating ottoman/armchair.
BEFORE (wow, this one is really bad)
AFTER – I’m especially loving the wall sconces and wash stand, and the brickwork floor is a nice touch also.
Amazing blind/chair colour combo offset by the white joinery, and the shapes work really well together too.
