BEFORE & AFTER: Ruth & Gavin

I can't believe we are already into the end of June, this year has been crazy for Sam Kate Design which means I've fallen behind on sharing what I've been working on.

Completed earlier this year, Ruth, Gavin and their 2 lively children called on me to liven up their decor on their 1955 ranch that had already been nicely updated before they moved in, but they were ready to finish it out with paint, new furniture and accessories.

The savvy client sold all of her husbands bachelor furniture and family hand-me-downs on Craigslist in preparation for all of the great new goodies. We finished out each room with custom art, hand picked light fixture and so many personal details.

Spacious sitting room with Ruth's favorite accent color, turquoise!

A glass-top dining table opens up this small dining area.

Mixed-media art by local Dallas artist, Sunny Sliger

Kids art displayed at the kitchen table, easily changed and updated daily.

Lounge space abounds for all day movie marathons.

Plenty of display space in this great room for personalized touches.

Old, broken shutters were replaced with custom roman shades, a darker accent color helped interesting accessories pop.

A fun and restful grown-up retreat.

A boy's room mature enough to grow into.

Room to study and display trophies and photos.

This lucky girl enjoys a custom painted puppy, monogrammed art and hand dip-dyed curtains. Her pink painted ceiling adds nearly 2 feet of visual height and modern fixture brings extra light.

Simple accessories, art and a fresh coat of paint were all this shared bath called for.

Special thanks to Kate Love Photography
