Design in a box

I recently finished what I am calling design in a box for an elderly couple in Florida.  They knew that wanted an update, but did not know exactly what to do.  They sent me a rough floor plan with some dimensions and what furniture they wanted to keep.  They also, gave me the color palette that they wanted to stay in...the rest was up to me.

I designed to different  room designs- I sent the draft with all of the spec's, some fabric recommendations - along with some store in their area.  All they need to do is take the design prints and spec's to the local store...Simple and Easy way to redesign your Harmonizing Homes

Color Inspiration

Color inspiration can come from anything and anywhere.....You can look through home and fashion design magazines,web sites and one of my favorites is nature....

I have written several blogs on looking to nature for color..however in this particular blog, we will actually be posting the progress of this small 4x5 powder room of this beautiful home in Long Valley New Jersey.  The home owners recently spent a long weekend end in the North Fork of Long Island , enjoying the beaches and the wines of the region.
Inspiration rocks

tile and paint color
 While walking the beach they picked up beautiful coral colored rocks as their inspiration for the new bathroom (as pictured above) - We will post the progress as the bathroom evolves - 

You can do the same thing with autumn leaves, shells.....just about anything....  The fall is a great time of year to spruce up your home for the holidays.....bringing in color is a simple inexpensive and easy way to updating a room...If you looking for help in choosing your colors, Harmonizing Homes can assist you in doing so....

Jersey Shore Cottage Kitchen


Harmonizing Homes was asked to redesign this charming little Jersey Shore Cottage located in Toms River...It was in need of an extreme makeover.  The resources where limited...with a $15,000 dollar budget...The only way that this was possible was that the homeowners would have to do most of the work themselves...It took some time but as you can see the results are amazing.    The color scheme ties into the remaining house which consist of Reds, Blues, and Yellows...of various shades...I hope you enjoy the before and after progression I enjoyed this project!!  Harmony...
