Working with homeowners who are passionate about updating and personalizing their home is as rewarding for us as our clients. Quite often, we are called to help add the finishing touches to renovations well underway or completed. The goal, of course, is to create beautiful spaces which showcase the owner’s personal taste & style.
For one recent project in Crystal Lake, we were asked to help the owners finish their updates by putting the “icing on the cake”. Having bought the home three years ago, the family had already been busy renovating and personalizing their home. When we met, they’d already made significant changes including a fresh color palette, updated flooring, new lighting, custom millwork, new windows and more.
With a beautifully-updated backdrop in place, we were asked to bring color and personality to the spaces. After adding a few additional pieces of furniture, we were ready to layer in art, accessories and window treatments specially selected to compliment and enhance all the owner’s hard work.
After a few months finding the perfect pieces, we were able bring in all the new treasures, just in time for 4th of July festivities with family and friends.
While Before & After pics never truly capture the changes in a space, they do show what a difference simple updates and the right accessories can make in finishing and personalizing the spaces in your home:

While we only played a small part in this family home’s transformation, the finished spaces are dramatically different from their previous incarnations. Accessories are the accents that truly give any room its unique personality. We were happy to help this family put the finishing touches on their hard work by icing the cake with home accents.
If your own spaces could use a new personality, give us a call. Happy Decorating from Decor Designs. 815-245-2433.
