Project Feminine Rustic Design

I am living vicariously from single ladies who I’m currently helping to design their gorgeous abodes. It reminds me of the time when I bought my first home, a quaint cottage with a yard; where I lived all by myself, did things when I want to do them, decorated the way I want to and when I was most disciplined {when it comes to exercising & eating right — why does marriage make you gain weight?}.

Today, I want to share what we’re doing for a young, successful lady in her cute loft-like home. The home is split level with the living room, dining room & kitchen, library/office all in one open space with 20 ft. ceilings and a massive fireplace. She wanted a sophisticated, inviting environment that’s not one note … she wanted a mix of several styles without looking hodge podge of course!

feminine rustic living room

In the living room, the fireplace is the focal point. She is in love with a leather cognac sofa which is perfect for the rustic space. A wing chair with nice curves, marble accent table & a white tufted bench exudes feminine sophistication. She has a few stairs going up to the bedroom & restroom & ornate, European-style candle lanterns will be so romantic, don’t you think? And the venetian mirror…nothing beats a classic!

foyer and bookcase

In the foyer or entryway, a console + chair + hooks is both beautiful & functional. We’ll add a collage of art, a mirror {because it just helps to look at yourself just one last time before you head out the door}. She has a bookcase right behind the sofa which we’ll paint the inside with a charcoal hue & of course, nothing is really done until they’re accessorized & styled.

french modern dining room

And here’s the dining room design board. We’ll pair a sleek, white, minimalist table with a dramatic crystal chandelier & rattan french bistro chairs. She loves European getaways so why not bring the al fresco French cafe experience to her?

We’re slowly getting things together…there maybe a few changes here and there. I’m hoping {and thinking} she loves it.
