Done In A Day Decorating | The Living Room | Lexington, MA

One of my favorite clients asked me to come to her house and do some rearranging for a party she is having this weekend. She was hoping her and her guests could eat outside but the weather isn't going to cooperate so she called me hoping I could help her get her living areas freshened up for the party. I didn't take before pictures sadly but I thought you might be interested to see some of the afters. This is a great example of my Done In A Day decorating service. It's amazing how much can be accomplished with the design of a space simply by using and reusing what you already own. Sometimes all it takes is a designer with a fresh pair of eyes to take what you have and rearrange it in a new and exciting way! This is what I call budget decorating at it's best :)

This piece originally had a large mirror over it which I relocated to the front entry. I replaced it with a piece of artwork that was tucked above a bookcase and accented the colors in the art by adding the topiary and the blue Chinese ginger jar.

This vignette I created using a collection of my clients silver tea pots (which I found hiding in a cabinet), design magazines, a ginger jar (that was in her basement) and a potted topiary.


A shot of the room from the front of the house. The round mirrors over the sofa are vintage pieces which my client inherited from her aunt. They we're originally made and hung to mimic porthole windows from the ship her aunt came to America on! My client had these stored but let me know she wanted to use them somewhere in the house. I love being able to find ways to display pieces that have meaning to my clients. Sorry the picture is blurry!

I rearranged the bookcases to display a lot of family photos and interesting objects. Laying some of the books sideways creates spaces for pictures to be displayed.
