Erika Ward Interiors transforms a bland great room into a colorful welcoming place for family and friends.
THE SEDUCTION OF A MODEL HOME
Each week I receive an email from a reader needing help with their two story great room. Rooms like these are very common in the Atlanta area, especially in new construction. When potential buyers visit model homes they are instantly captivated with the decor and the soaring ceilings.
THE BLANK CANVAS
What buyers sometimes forget is that their new home will look more like this (below) and require more of this ($$$$$). The blank canvas they purchase requires work and often times professional help to become the showplace they fell in love with.
THE FINAL RESULT
My client was not home the day I installed her job so I was on “pins” until I got her call that afternoon when she returned home. I took a few shot of the space before I left…
BEFORE -VIEW #2
Her husband, usually very opinionated, was firm about his only request. He wanted his clock and television mounted above the fireplace.
THE MOCKUP – VIEW #2
Here’s a view of the fireplace with the necessary request from the “Mister.”
THE FINAL RESULT
Here is an aerial view of the family room taken from the second floor. Notice the ample moldings and coffered ceiling…gorgeous!
