Chattanooga Interior Design Project - Downtown Condo On The River Part 2

Today I want to share more photos of a recently completed project in downtown Chattanooga. The condo makeover was cosmetic in nature, meaning we didn't do any extensive remodeling. The new look was achieved with paint, some new furnishings, lighting and styling. If you recall from last weeks post, when I first visited this condo it was decorated with lots of browns, golds, and reds, and my clients were ready for a brighter, happier aesthetic.

Last week I shared the "afters" of the main living area:

Today, we'll have a look at the rest of the rooms that were transformed - mainly with paint and fabrics.

I had the guest bath (below) painted Benjamin Moore Aegean Teal (ceiling too). A custom upholstered cornice and custom shower curtain panels were made for the tub area. The mirror was repurposed from another area in my clients' home, and the vanity, granite, flooring and shower tile are original to the space.

Below is guest bedroom.

I had the walls painted Benjamin Moore Stratton Blue. The color palette of the guest room is similar to the colors in the guest bathroom to help tie those two spaces together. Most of the furniture in the guest bedroom already belonged to my clients. The transformation was achieved with paint, new bedding, reusing furniture pieces from other areas of their home, and restyling the accessories.

Ready to tour the master bedroom?


In the master bedroom, we wanted to achieve a feeling of quiet luxury. Walls are painted Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. I can't say enough good things about Revere Pewter! It's gray but still has some warmth. I had the headboard and bed skirt custom made in an oversize medallion print in silver and lavender. The night stands were repurposed from my clients' previous bedroom, and I like the warmth of the wood tones against the gray walls. The faux fur at the end of the bed is a fun and unexpected addition.


Some of the details are more easily seen in this photo. The polished nickel nail heads inset into the headboard, the satiny finish of the mother of pearl lamps (with lucite accents) and the charcoal mohair lumbar pillow all contribute to the feeling of luxury. Did you notice the lavender piping on the pillow shams? They're from Restoration Hardware. The Lladro figurines are part of my clients' collection.


The book case is on the wall opposite the bed. We added all of the mill work around the bookcase and painted it white. Previously the shelves were just inset into the sheetrock with no trim whatsoever. The addition of the trim gives the book case a stronger, more important presence. The backs of the book case are painted Benjamin Moore Elephant Gray, a subtle shade of lavender. The chair custom and sits on a swivel base.


The upholstered bench is custom and offers easy access to storage inside for extra blankets and out of season items.

This was such an amazing opportunity for me and I'm so thrilled with the results! I think it also demonstrates that big changes can be achieved with furniture, paint and fabrics.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today!
