Pacific Palisades Living Room Before and After

After decorating her sister, Jeanne's home
Joanne asked if I could give her a hand.
She lives in the charming town of 
Pacific Palisades, just north of 
Santa Monica, California.
This is an after photo....I only had my small camera and don't know how the date got on there...
but you can see this was taken last Monday.

Here is a before photo...
The white carpeting and tile entry needed to go.
So much better with wood floors.  
I wanted to ditch the pine armoire. 
Joanne needed some convincing, 
but she is happy now with the Dovetail console.
Before...I didn't like this builder's grade banister/room
 divider either.  I recommended removing 
it when the floor went in
and using a plant in place of it.  
The club chairs were slipcovered 
and the was furniture rearranged.

Her sister Jeanne bought the good-looking fake tree 
from Gardenology and I delivered it.

I suggested replacing the hearth tiles with stone.

I should have take before photos of all her art 
and accessories grouped for me to "shop" last Monday.
I had fun accessorizing with what Joanne already had.  
See the orchid on the mantel?  
Joanne's sister bought that for her at my moving sale.

You can see where Liana worked her magic 
on Joanne's pretty new pillows.
Her kitty likes the new room, too.

Here is the mantel before...
And after...
We used heavy Belgian linen curtains 
from Restoration Hardware. 
In the moist ocean air the wrinkles will soften 
(they probably already have).  
The look and feel of the material is beautiful.

And now...
Thanks for visiting!
