Flashback Friday: Two-room Make-over

It's Friday and you know what that means?  It's time for flashback Friday!  Flashback Friday is a weekly series where projects of the past are featured. Once a blog post is written it goes to the "archives" where hardly anyone sees them.  Boo!  Flashback Friday is an opportunity to re-post an "old" project from the past.

Today we're taking a look back at a room transformation.  Initially this project started with the kitchen table and chairs.  From there it evolved into a two-room transformation! 

Here is the kitchen BEFORE its transformation (I had already painted the kitchen set, which you see in the picture)....

The kitchen set received fresh paint and new upholstery on the chairs.  I offered several upholstery options, and the home-owner stepped outside her comfort zone and chose this....

Kitchen Set AFTER: 

So the kitchen set is refreshed, but what about the rest of the room?

It became apparent to the home-owner that the rest of her kitchen and the adjoining living room weren't working with her newly painted kitchen set.  The set now had color, but the rest of the space didn't.  A room make-over was in the near future....

First, a color scheme was determined based on the home-owner's favorite color, navy....

Give me Accessories! 

Adding a pop of color was achieved by adding plenty of accessories.   Wall art, accent furniture, decor, and a variety of throw pillows brightened up the space instantly.

Living room BEFORE: 


Don't forget the window!

OK. We achieved color.  But, the bare kitchen wall needed attention.  A pair of navy blue geometric window panels, and a colorful picture provide visual balance between the kitchen and the living room:

A sea grass rug, chandelier, and greenery added additional texture throughout the space.  It's all in the details! 

Room Make-over (Novo Decor Style):

Mixing the old with the new is what Novo Decor is all about!  In this room make-over a mix of skillfully chosen thrifted home decor items, newly purchased items, and the home-owner's already owned accessories complimented one another to pull the two rooms together.   

Have a room you're proud of?  I'd love to see it! Post a picture to Novo Decor's Facebook page!
