Arden & Scott

Every now and then I get a chance to help a friend with decorating their home. Sweet Arden Ellis and her husband Scott wanted to finally furnish and decorate their formal living room and dining area.  They might have been the easiest people to work with as they knew EXACTLY what they wanted, and both  have very sleek & modern taste.   Kristen and I worked on getting these two rooms together, and are very pleased with the way they turned out.  Just a few more accent pieces for the Living room and it will be complete!   Scroll further down to see the before photos and the room in progress.


view from living room into dining area - chandelier picked by Kristen from shop ten 25.  What could be more perfect for these two Longhorns than Slipper chairs recovered in orange and white trellis!

This vintage Thomasville dresser was the focal point of living room.  Artwork was a gift from Scott's sister, Melissa Ellis who is a local artist here in Dallas.

Scored two Missoni vases and two cool lamps

They already had the table, chairs and artwork, just needed a fabulous light fixture.  at night the shadows from this chandelier are beautiful. 

A chrome x-base bench is serving as seating opposite the slipper chairs.  The large sisal and cowhide give the room warmth and texture.

Lucite nesting tables and a fab book complete the look     

BEFORE - trying to figure out just the right layout and what chairs to use
