We have a new project that is located in Edgecomb, Maine on the Damariscotta River. The Damariscotta is a 19.0-mile-long tidal river, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. This river known for its Oyster beds, Mussel Farming, clamming, fishing, and in recent years it has become a huge tourist destination.
This is the first job I have had in this area, and it is truly amazing. Our client’s home is situated in the most picturesque spot on the banks of the river. It is such a lovely place to work. I also really like the home owners which is an added bonus!
Although the house is very nice, it needs some updating. The home is new to my client so she wants to put her stamp on it. We are painting almost the entire interior of the house. In addition to paint, we are rearranging furniture, purchasing some new furniture and hanging art.
The photos below are of first room we are tackling. It needs new paint, a sectional sofa, coffee table style ottoman, and maybe a new chair and ottoman. We are keeping the game table and chairs. They have a lovely rug in the space so we do not need to purchase one.
All of the trim will all be painted in Benjamin Moore Decorators White, and the walls will be a version of one of the colors below.
We are painting the back of the bookcases, Farrow & Ball Parma Gray-which is far darker than it appears below.
We are then looking into sectional for the space. These are three of the options I am pricing out. I like the top and bottom choice. Which one do you like?
Rather than a coffee table, I would like to use a large square ottoman. I am drawn to the base of the bottom option, but I am not sure if it would be comfortable to put your feet up on.
Lastly, I propose moving the blue leather chair and ottoman (in photo above) to the family room and replacing it with one of these.
#1 This one has good lines, and is very comfortable
#2 This is a swivel and which would work well in this space, because you could turn toward the sectional or to the AMAZING view.
#3 I love this, but I think is too sweet for the space.
So this is my first draft idea board for the room.
The fabrics and leg finishes will be different, but, this is just a mood board.
What do you think? Do you like the direction this room is going in? The view is the star in this house so I do not want to do anything to fussy, formal or trendy.
