Homepolish is part of a new trend in interior design; it’s a website that matches clients with talented designers who fit their aesthetic and design needs at a transparent hourly rate. Designer Shannon Tate-Giordano was matched with a couple near Boston who wanted to update their living room. Says Shannon, “They wanted a fun, colorful, eclectic space. I have to say, this project was outside of where I usually go with design….but I’m always excited by a challenge and opportunity to stretch myself and learn something new.
“The clients wanted to incorporate used items when possible, so we were scouring craigslist and Chairish for items and found a few and lost a few in the process. After losing a few items we fell in love with (because that’s how it goes on those sites!) we decided that I would make some of the decor myself, some pillows and art, and we would source the rest through companies aligned with their aesthetic.”
The result of Shannon’s collaboration with her clients is a comfortable, yet polished space. The light walls and curtains create the perfect backdrop for bold pops of color and an eclectic mix of styles from contemporary to bohemian.
Color, pattern and texture work together to create the bright and cheerful feel of this living room.
Define who you are as a person…find a few adjectives and ask yourself if you feel your home reflects that. Shannon Tate-Giordano
The modern chairs with faux sheepskin covers bring a bohemian element to the design. Adding a coat of dark gray paint to the fireplace creates a more updated, contemporary quality to the room.
Based on this beautiful living room update, it seems that Homepolish provided these clients with a designer match made in heaven!
