Are you ready for a little beach vacation? I know I am. Although I can't take one right now ;-), I figured I could live vicariously through a Beachy Design Board that I created for two clients who are ready to feel like they are on vacation without having to leave their house.
Gabby and Brandon love the feel of the coastal and beachy style! So, I created a Design Board that allowed them to have some of the feelings of the beach in the comfort of their own home.
It is amazing to me what a color can do for a neutral pallet! It would still be relaxing and soft with the grays and tans, but the orange just brings it to life.

Here are a couple pics of the room BEFORE...
I didn't get great shots of the room when I was there, but I got a couple just to share with you the room before they start transitioning it. Just off to the right is the fireplace and then a shorter blank wall to the right.
On this back wall, since they are young newly weds, I recommended that my clients create a gallery wall of black and white wedding photos. When I met with them and we looked through some of the items they had collected, I noticed that they had some beautiful photos from their wedding. I just thought they needed to be displayed instead of kept in an album :)
I left the room with an open flow and brought in an L shaped sofa to give as much seating as possible. Above the console table is where I suggested they put the picture gallery. Then they can bring in lamps to flank either end of the console table...
I love the mix of metal and glass! It just looks like bubbles trying to escape to me.
My favorite piece in the room is the coffee table...
I LOVE it!!! Again, a really cool mix of metal and wood. I really like the finish on the table too!
I received word back yesterday that they love it and thought it was beautiful. That means a lot! Thanks guys :)
