Before & After: Interiors Refresh in Corpus Christi, Part One
May 29, 2020 in Before & After, Interiors Tour | 2 comments

Our design team has typically taken on projects in Austin and surrounding areas, but we have been fortunate enough to offer our services beyond our homebase. If you have been keeping up with our blog, you will know that just in the past months alone we have been working on projects in Montana (as seen in Mountain Living), Missouri, Seattle, Scottsdale and New Orleans. We have also been working on a couple of projects along the Texas coast including our Texas Beach House project in Port O’Connor, which has been published in Coastal Living and HGTV Magazine. Additionally, we have been working on an interiors refresh in Corpus Christi, which we will reveal on today’s blog. We hope to professionally photograph it once it is complete. However, the iPhone progress photos are just too good to keep to ourselves! We had to preview it on the blog. Today we will start with the fabulous formal living room!

Before Install:

Here is a photo of the space at the start of our furniture install. It is always so fun to see a space transformed. Our client collects art and wanted her pieces incorporated in her space. She wanted her formal living room to have a traditional feel and a neutral palette with pops of color.

(We selected and sourced these beautiful Julie Neill chandeliers. They were obviously installed prior to the furniture install. We will talk more about these later in the post!)

Besides the art, we incorporated our client’s existing mirror, side table and bergere chair into her new furniture layout.

After Install

We love this transformation! The goals were to create a neutral and calming color scheme with pops of teal, blue, and pink. We wanted the space to feel sophisticated and pulled together, but we also had to be sure the layout offered plenty of comfortable and durable seating for her family and for entertaining.

One of the main attractions of the space is the whimsical pair of chandeliers by Julie Neill. They appealed to our client’s eclectic yet traditional tastes. They add such a such a statement and are the perfect jewelry for the formal living space.

Below is a bird’s eye view of the refreshed living room from the home’s second level. Tailored sofas with a fresh mix of pillows and an oversized antique mirrored coffee table anchor the refreshed room.

Our client’s existing art has a bold mix of colors, which naturally makes it another main focal point in the room. The soft, neutral furnishings and palette really allow the art to pop and highlight our client’s beloved treasures. The artwork was placed above a new ivory sideboard with brass hardware. This is the main wall that you see as you walk into the living room from the entry and it certainly feels inviting.

To fill the wall even more, a pair of custom teal velvet slipper chairs with round mirrors flank the piece. As the final finishing touch, we selected a pair of hand painted and glazed teal ceramic lamps. They helped bring in our accent colors even more.

Here is another view of the room. From every angle this room is such a pretty sight! We had to capture as many photos and angles as we could.

We love this custom pillow mix. The prints offer a soothing and serene mix of color. The pillows rest against a durable and neutral Crypton fabric. Even though it is the formal living space, it needed to be practical! Due to the size of the room, we opted for a custom neutral wool rug. It adds just the right amount of texture and enhances the calming feel of the space.

Here is one last view of the living space from the home’s den/kitchen.

Next week we will continue the glimpse inside this refreshed Corpus Christi home to take a look at the home’s den.
