One of my favorite services that I offer is the Room ReArrange ReFresh. With this service, I come into your home and we refresh one of your rooms by moving furniture around, and we ‘shop’ the rest of your house for the space. It’s amazing how rearranging furniture, artwork, rugs, and accessories really changes a space….and it totally gives you a lift in spirit withe feeling that you have a totally new room.
A client of mine in Andover, MA asked me to come over and help her refresh the main living space on her first floor. I couldn’t wait to get in there as she lives in the most beautiful antique farm house in the entire town! She also has great taste and is a very talented artist. Shopping her home for the space was so fun! We both had a great time and had a lot of laughs and ‘ah-ha’ moments.
THE SITTING AREA BY THE WOOD STOVE
One area we worked on was the seating area in front of the wood stove. When I got there, there was one couch in front of the wood stove and two leather swivel chairs. Now, this space was cozy and well done, but it was ready for a change.
Here are the BEFORE photos of the space.
There was another sitting area right next to this seating area, in front of a TV, so we took the other couch and brought it to the area here with the wood stove, and removed the leather swivels for use in another space. The below three images are what the space looks like AFTER!
THE NEW EATING AREA
The second area we worked on was the second sitting area that sat right next to the area by the wood stove, but this area was in front of the TV. Now, it is nice to have a sitting area in front of the TV, but the homeowners never really sat here to watch television. They always retreated to their large family room with a large sectional and fireplace. Knowing that, we decided to put the kitchen table in this area by the television. That would make it a great spot to sit with your breakfast, a magazine, and watch the morning news.
Here are the AFTER photos of the space in front of the TV after we moved a couch out of the area.
THE SUNKEN SEATING AREA RIGHT OFF THE KITCHEN
The last area that we refreshed was the sunken in area right next to the kitchen. Originally, this area had the kitchen table in it, but as you can see from above, we moved the table over where the television is. Now, this sunken in area is a cozy little spot where you can sit, have an informal bite to eat or sit with a glass of wine, and take in the beautiful view of the backyard!
Here are the the BEFORE photos of the space.
After we moved the table out and the sitting area into this space, it because the homeowners favorite spot. To make it, we ‘shopped’ another room in the house and brought in an old leather couch. It made the space perfect! Check out below for the AFTER photos.
This entire project was so fun and made the homeowner thrilled. She has a new found love for her home (not that she wasn’t in love with it already), but a refreshed space really refreshes you as well.
