Filling a Family Home Part1
Even when it’s hot, I have to be on my game. So, when some awesome new clients purchased a big ‘ol house in Langford this past May, I had to kick it into gear to help them find some budget & kid friendly furniture ASAP. Once they got possession we started the Paint and flooring conversation right away. We agreed to go dark and make it very cozy, but still have a west coast vibe…not too mountain cabin-y. You get me? They showed me some pics from Houzz.com of a home they loved and it was bold so I agreed to help them do it – but they had to be brave to achieve the look. Wide plank flooring was a must and the main wall colour we settled on was Porcini by Benjamin Moore. I know they were scared of the dark colour on painting day – but I also knew it would be awesome and they trusted me enough to see it through.

With flooring and painting underway I was scouring the earth for furniture for these guys, and scored a couple essential pieces for the living dining room on Used Victoria. When you move to a bigger place, it can be shocking how your old furniture is too small, and you dont have enough of it. So although they were unsure about why I was sending them all these tables to look at – it’s clear now that they needed more pieces.
So, even though we have a long way to go – my client was really wanting a few interior design touches to make her construction zone feel like home, so I styled up a few corners of the front living room, and she’s really happy now and motivated to keep going. I’ll blog about these fun decorating segments soon, for now just some pics.
