This blog is a continuation of yesterdays charming Acorn Hill estate in Lake Oswego that Kimberlee Jaynes Interior Designs ,Inc. had the privilege of working on. The great room was in need of the final layers. The addition of the aged Currey triple light fixture over the breakfast table coupled with the blue Ikat heavy cotton fabric drapes gives this area a strong, warm and inviting place for the children to do home work and for the family to eat casual meals. I added the flax colored linen down filled sofa with blue medallion cotton pillows, large family friendly storage coffee table and the two French ceramic dogs flanking the fireplace. I moved some art around and placed the greenery on the fireplace ...wa la a house is now a home. You don't normally think of balloon shades being used in the kitchen, but this is exactly what was needed to dress the fine features of this charming old world kitchen. Adding lamp shades to the existing chandelier and the French porcelain chickens above the stove along with the topiaries and some other accessories completes the look.
Tune in tomorrow to see the grande dame...the master bedroom!
I have been working on this project for a couple of years...you may recognize it from the H&G section of the Oregonian as they did a piece on it last January.
