West-Hollywood-spec-house-by-Leigh-Herzig-photograph-by-Laure-Joliet-Remodelista-35

Now that our dining room makeover is (somewhat) complete, I’ve started filing away inspiration for the rest of the house. On the top of my list? Leigh Herzig‘s West Hollywood home First off – I love California architecture like this, it reminds me of growing up in LA, so when I saw the outside of […]

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – THE REVEAL!!!

Well, I suppose that compared to a few of my fellow designers, my reveal is not AS huge – we’ve been showing you quite a bit behind the scenes (maybe next time I need to be more of a tease?), but let me tell you this: a little styling goes a long way in transforming and finishing […]

    Beautiful room. I think you achieved your “polished global” style and more! Love how simple and uncluttered it is yet there is a definite curated feel to the accessories. Great job and looking forward to seeing more of your changes to this place!

    What a transformation! I love that shade of blue you picked and it works so well with the wood tone now! can’t believe these are the same dining table and bench … the new chairs and chandelier totally revamped the way they look and feel! That pop of green from the fiddle leaf is perfect against the blue! LOVE!!

    I love this! It’s a wonderful fusion of both your styles that created a very cohesive look. The chairs, wall color, chandelier – everything – it’s all fantastic!! Great job!

    You pulled off “polished global” to a T! It looks fabulous even without the rug (although I’m looking forward to seeing the rug in place as well). I love the art gallery you pulled together from both of your collections – it’s eclectic but also very streamlined. Great work compromising between the masculine and feminine. I also love that table runner – is it simply fabric you draped or is it an actual runner? More importantly, where did you get it?! Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the house!

    Beautiful!! That rich color on the walls is such a gorgeous background for everything! Love the texture of your chairs, the fab chandelier and your spot on styling! I was thinking I should have shown more instead of being such a tease, LOL!

    Amazing!! I’m loving the polished global look. That wall color is outstanding and is perfect with all of the other choices. Something somewhere in my life is getting painted Prussian Cadet. I can’t wait to see what you do in the living room; from this little glimpse, all the buttery coral seems so warm against the cool, moody dining room.

    I think it looks great and manages to be both stylish and very Seattle (polished, earthy). You mentioned early on that your boyfriend was attached to a gallery wall of family photos. Where did you move those? Are you planning on incorporating a few family pics elsewhere?

      Hey Carrie, thank you! We’re going to move the gallery wall of family photos to the hallway that leads to our bedrooms – I’m SURE that will be a whole other post! I have a feeling we may add some family images to other areas as well as we start to design – I would like to have a few in the living room area!

    I looooove the table runner. Would you be willing to let us know where you found that? 😉 What a beautiful room – I’m in the process of figuring out what to do with my SUPER BORING dining room.

Yes, I really just said ‘Pop Art’ and ‘Atrium’.

Welcome to the home of John Henry. […]

I cannot believe we’re in the last week of the One Room Challenge! So I guess this means that in one week this room will be completely DONE? Well… that we will see about.

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 4 :: LET THERE BE LIGHT!

IMG_1162

Yes yes, I’m late to the party today with my post, BUT it’s all for good reason! Life has been crazy and – as usual – I waited until the last minute to do some updates to the dining room yesterday, which resulted in J and I hanging the chandelier by the light of our headlamps […]

    LUV the light fixture…what made you decide on that height?? Maybe it’s the perspective of the photo. Waiting for more!! franki

    1. Cassandra LaValle Post author

      I didn’t consider the height much to be honest but this was about as low as we could go without someone potentially bonking their head on it! If we had centered it over the table I probably would have gone a bit lower.

    This room is coming along so nicely….Love that you hung the chandelier high and not specifically over the table….as a light fixture. It totally works. Looking forward to seeing your talented styling skills come to life.
