Canyon Crest: Family Room + Dining Room

I'm excited to introduce you to the CANYON CREST home!
Brooke Jones Designs Canyon Crest Family Room Custom Ottoman Celerie Kemble Fabric

This home was purchased by my client a little more than a year ago and though it wasn't a total gut job, it was pretty darn close.  The first time I stepped into the family room I thought to myself  "this is where taxidermy goes to die."  Almost every member of the deer family was represented on the walls: elk, buffalo, antelope... all staring at you from two stories up. CRREEEEEPPPPYYYYY...

 Needless to say, this home was a little more rustic than my client's personal taste. First thing we did was rip out worn shaggy carpet (can we PLEASE get over that trend?) and replaced it with a loop pile broadloom that resembled sisal (MUCH more tailored and timeless).  We repainted the faux-plastered walls in Kwal's Old Washer and restained a lot of the stain grade baseboards.  This proved to be the perfect facelift!! It did wonders. Once we had the base of the room squared away, it was just a matter of layering in a fun elements, like a rug from Anthropologie, a huge custom ottoman in a Celerie Kemble fabric, and lattice wingback chairs from Bassett Furniture.

For the kitchen and dining space, there were two existing stains: a honey tone on the knotty alder and a dark java.  Since we wanted to add as much light into this space as possible, we painted out all the dark java elements, namely, the oven range area, island, and built-in china hutch.  We replaced the dated Tuscan lighting fixtures with more contemporary glass pendants adding even more brightness to the space.

Add in custom designed wingback dining chairs, farmhouse table and bright rugs and accessories, 
and you have yourself a fresh vintage rustic space!

To jazz up the built-in china hutch, we also wallpapered the back of the cabinet in a pretty blue geometric print.  Having the colored background really makes the accessories pop!
