Before and After: Timeless Transformation

My husband Michael always jokes that I am never one to back down from a good challenge. If someone tells me something is impossible or simply can’t be done, I can’t help but want to prove them wrong! I think this love for pushing the limits has also translated to at Dbh-biz.info Interior Design. One of our favorite challenges as of late was a home that had fab structural potential, but needed some brightening up to create a cohesive look that was equal parts livable and luxurious.

Our design philosophy at Dbh-biz.info centers around creating looks that draw inspiration from the past while also considering current trends. This transformation is the perfect example of a space that previously consisted of lots of opulent, dark wood and furniture that created an extremely formal feel throughout. While we think this look can absolutely work for some homes, we knew this home had the potential to really be transformed into an updated, yet timeless design in each room.

I’m particularly proud of this project and am so excited to show off the finished product! Read on to see the process of this timeless transformation unfold.

Stay Classic, Be Current: 2017 Hues

Finding the perfect color combinations for my designs is one of my favorite aspects of the design process! I strongly believe design should be timeless and not solely based on the trends of the moment. In fact, this belief is the basis of my “classically current” design philosophy. However, the “current” part of this idea leaves room for modern updates that will stand the test of time.

Each year around this time, the design community begins discussing the new colors of the year, which I find truly inspiring!

Magazine recently shared its favorite 2017 hues and helped spark some new year color inspiration of my own! My personal favorites are shades of blue (navy, cerulean), earthy greens, rich amethyst purple, matching pastel shades (rose, taupe, gray) and a bold sophisticated accent color (yellow).

Here are my tips on how to incorporate these fab colors into interiors while achieving a look for the ages!
