Country Chic

For a designer, nothing is more delightful than clients with great taste and a modern point of view. We are nearing the completion of the remodeling and decorating of this "country chic" home and are getting excited at seeing the final installation in the next few weeks. I thought you'd enjoy seeing a little of our design thought process in inspiration and fabric choices that we have used in this wonderful living room.

In the next few weeks as we finish, I'll post the before and after pictures of the entire beautiful transformation where we used as much existing material and furnishings as possible to create a really wonderful living space for this young family!

the wonderful eclecticism of this country chic room taken from
Elle Decor magazine was an inspiration for my client when we
had our first meeting...the room has the same many windows
and an all-white light and airy feel

as we developed exactly the look for her living room, we left
the orange behind and went with a purer palette of reds, blues, whites
and linens; we were completely taken with the Travers collection from
Zimmer-Rhode shown here

these are the fabrics we chose:

the stunning jacquard and the stripes in navy/white
are Travers Batik Leaf and La Verna in Ink;
the beautiful cotton print is Fairie Enchantee Toile from Quadrille;
the solid linen is the Belgian Linen from Restoration Hardware;
and the red stripe is a vintage fabric from France


thanks for visiting!... Kit


  1. O what a wonderful job to do!!!

    Have a nice time!


  2. What you just did is so much prettier than the Elle Decor! I just love the red, white, blue and linens you've use, just a beautiful room! You're certainly a great designer! I love the apholstery material you're using...I want to re-apholster my family room couches, but I can't decide on what...sometimes I want to go modern and others a one color look, wish I had you close by! Please show us the before and after at Susan's Metamorphosis Monday, at BNOTP.

  3. Great color story and choice of furnishings. You know you have pulled it off if one feels that the house has a great lived in feel. This house certainly has it!

    Have a great Sunday!
