Before & After in San Antonio

We recently finished up the installation for a new home in The Dominion in San Antonio.

This lovely couple is planning ahead for retirement and purchased a smaller home with a very efficient floorplan.  The builder was Brohn Homes and they did a very nice job.  We were brought in to provide all new furnishings (and upgrade the builder light fixtures) for the key living spaces.


The homeowners were a delight to work with, with the only real brief being that the color palette be quiet, preferably cream, beige and blue, but not ‘beachy’.


Here are a few photos during the construction phase:

Breakfast- note the ‘builder’ light fixtures:

Dining Room- with Grasscloth wallpaper installation.  We choose a grasscloth that had a blue and cream weave and it ties the whole color scheme together:

Entry- I love this light fixture!  The lamps have a really unique iridescent quality and shift from silver to a rich blue at the top.


Dining- this room is intended to be ‘multi-purpose’, functioning as the formal dining, but also as a library.  There is a settee in the back with bookcases and library lights.


Kitchen- we added dramatic light fixtures and barstools with character


Breakfast- a fresh, light look was achieved with the mixing of lighter woods and fabrics (the chairs are in cleanable, crypton fabric) as well as a large scale lantern.  Roman shades in a geometric print help make the space feel more homey.  Many times homeowners don’t see the value in window treatments, especially if they are not functional (FYI, these are not).  But I believe they really finish the space and make the house a home.


Family- we used light fabrics in durable materials, such as Sunbrella, Crypton and velvet.  Furniture placement allows seating for many adults, including grown children.

The house flows beautifully and looks wonderful.  The homeowners were very wise in recognizing that a fresh start would provide the most cohesive look for their new home.  The house feels welcoming, approachable and comfortable.  What a great way to start a new chapter in life!
