Update/Partial Install on the Living Room and Kitchen Dining Area

By Seasideinteriors @seasideinterio1
Even though the recent project we have been working on for our client Susanna in is not 100% finished yet, I thought I would share the progress we have made so far.   
If you remember in the last few posts I had shared the Before Pics of the House and the new Items that  were being purchased for the space.  If you missed em,'  you can see those posts HERE and HERE.
Let's start with the Living Room.
Here is a peak of the after (see the rest below)...
Update/Partial Install on the Living Room and Kitchen Dining AreaLet's take a look at how we got to this point.

Now on to the AFTER'S of the LIVING ROOM...

Gorgeous rain blue fabric was used to create the custom curtains for the space.The floor lamp is not actually going in front of the red chair, this was a during photo ;)

Update/Partial Install on the Living Room and Kitchen Dining Area The rug is a gorgeous muted down tone of gray and beige.  We chose one for the living room and a smaller version of the same rug for the space in the kitchen.

A punch of red with throw pillows to bring the red from the side chair over to the sofa.

Now for the dining area of the kitchen. 
Here is the design board.

Let's take another peak back at the kitchen dining area before...
Update/Partial Install on the Living Room and Kitchen Dining AreaThe wall color was a very unusual green and the location of the dining area light shoved the table location back towards the back door.

Here's the AFTER...
Update/Partial Install on the Living Room and Kitchen Dining AreaWe had the placement for the lighting moved and brought in a gorgeous new light fixture, new table, new rug, new dishware and mats, and new window treatment to match the blues of the living room.  We brought the chairs out of the clients dining room to match with the kitchen table, since we are replacing them down the road with new dining chairs and the client currently uses this space for eating.

Today the built-ins are being installed and we have to make one final install of our own to bring in additional accessories for the room including a deep blue throw blanket, tray and accessories for the coffee table and side table and several accessories for the built-ins.
Once that is finished, we will be getting some professional photos taken of the space to show you the final results of the family room and kitchen dining area.  :)
Thanks for checking out the update, I hope you enjoyed it so far.
