Crisp and Clean Design for my DINKs!

Another awesome room by Connell Interiors to show you!  One of my favorite client couples called last week to start another project in their home... this time, kitchen nook and living room window treatments.

I love working with my clients,  The DINKs, because they always have a realistic budget, love simplicity and will take some chances!  Last year we completed their living and dining room (which we cleverly turned into their tv room and office, respectively) and I left by saying, "Boy wouldn't window treatments look great in the tv room bay window??"

Nonetheless, they put the drapes on hold and moved onto their family room project.  I don't have before pictures of the family room but let me just tell you... it was completely empty from the start.  We worked off the colors of the front of the house which is currently on my website in the before and after section-

With this palette as the jumping off point, we transitioned the green and cream into the family room and added a splash of raspberry... oooh la la!

Ummm, favorite piece has to be the coffee table ottoman!

The entertainment armoire was custom designed by myself with the help of Kendra
at my "Go To" design showroom Resource Designs

We built it around the dimensions of the most important piece in the room according to
Mr. DINK, the flat screen television.  The company is called fittingly enough
(the possibilities are endless with the manufacturer... look for a newsletter or
blog post solely dedicated to them soon).

Aside from the perfect tv viewing, this young couple is all about function... lots of room to nap!  They both reclined on the sectional in the showroom to be sure they both fit!

So, onto the kitchen-

I'm thinking we need some color in there and here is the window
treatment fabric we chose for the tv room

Love this soooooo much!
Stay tuned!

Until next time,


  1. Traci, I love to see that you're doing more and more transitional decor. They all look great.
