Hope you had a good weekend!
I’m off to go to NYC and DC tomorrow for Knock Out Abuse 20th anniversary and to shoot some more projects I’ve designed.
So I thought I would share a pretty drastic dining room makeover. This fun Maryland client wanted a relaxed, elegant Santa Barbara look with classic elements but with a modern twist. She wanted some “Tory Burch” influence and pops of color to make it feel updated and young. Her husband wanted a big classic dining table and both wanted a space perfect for big family gatherings that was kid friendly.
We started out with this…
…a big room with a dark built in cabinet. (Yes that’s me taking a before pic…)
The room had a lot of space, it just had to be used.
After her initial thoughts about chinoserie wallpaper, we settled on this color scheme and some cool hardware for the big cabinet.
So the room went from this:

The big dark cabinet is now lime green high gloss with new hardware. That and the lavender curtains and a chic bohemian patterned wallpaper spice up the relaxed Santa Barbara vibe.
We hung her existing wall sconces on top of the mirror.
Hope you enjoyed it!
I will very soon have my new site up and running, in the meanwhile make sure you’re signed up to the mailing list www.jillsorensen.com. Instead of being confusing I’m consolidating all my business names to just mine. Simpler that way!
