Before and After in McLean, Virginia with Margery Wedderburn Interiors, LLC
We just love these Before and After stories. This family room had a rather dramatic makeover while keeping the main features and staying within budget. As you can see, the room was extremely dated, and the young couple that bought the home was just stumped at how to change it out. They visited similar homes in the neighbourhood looking for ideas but just couldn’t find what they wanted.
These dens are tough because unless you want to change out the fireplace area, which is one of the main focal points, you are hard pressed to figure out some alternatives.
|This is the Before…Very dated
We had clear goals in mind:
- Make the room look less “wind tunnel” – ish!
- Make the ceilings look higher.
- Bring the style into this century!
- Change out some detailing at the fireplace
- Add the electrical behind the walls to allow for a large screen TV on the wall
- Work with the existing rug.
…And we wanted to get rid of the panelling!!
We added this great light fixture and some wall panelling details to balance out that fireplace wall… Then we completely painted the bookshelves with the light blue and white detailing …
