before + after

From Lisa ( Thank you Lisa!! :) ) Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with and helped me finish off the room perfectly. I have worked with designers in the past and I can honestly say this was the best experience I've had! I am looking forward to working with her on my living room next!

Lisa's vacation home needed some help with accessories and pulling the space together. It's a room for her two kids when they are there, but she also wanted a space for adults to stay when their friends used the space and not feel like they were staying in a kids room. Lisa had great West Elm pieces to work with in the space already. She knew she wanted some blue accents as it looks right out to the ocean..


We looked at some options with brighter blues and hints of purples, pinks and greens. That wasn't it. So I toned it down a bit and came up with this..

 and here it is done. LOVE it!

Lisa's space by the ocean is nowhere near me here in Calgary Alberta.. E Design with design boards is such a great way to complete your space! You see the rooms progress and see it come together each step of the way :)



design philosophy | providing a foundation to grow and alter through the years, I keep the core basic and layer in the current, creating a room that is innately yours. I believe great interiors are not found in one shop. I know you should feel a sense of calm in your space as well as balance, and revel in that gut feeling that it’s the right fit. DESIGN SERVICES start at only 10.00. See Sarah Swanson Design at the top left of this blog!

Beautiful! The new pillows remind me of coral in a way, so they are perfect in a room with a beach view! I also love the mirror.
