Homeward Bound and Presto Chango's

Greetings! We're visiting family in North Carolina today, and we plan to hit the road back to sweet home Alabama tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait to sleep in our bed and see our furkids...it feels like we've been gone forever!

We've received quite a few emails about the items we used in Brandon and Heather's room re-do, so I'll be sure to blog about all of them when we get back home. It was such a fun makeover, and an experience we'll never forget!

In the meantime, I thought I'd post a few photos of some other rooms I've had the pleasure of (virtually) working on this year.

(Move your cursor back and forth over my clients "before" photos below to check out the inspiration drawings I created for them)



















The environment we surround ourselves with inside our homes plays such a huge part in shaping the image we portray outside our homes. So have fun creating spaces that reflect the personalities of the people who call your house, home!

Hope you're having a great week!

Layla

Hi again guys! I just saw your episode, and wanted to tell you it's great! I had seen the pics in your post, but it looks so wonderful in the video... congratulations!

Aura said...

I want to live in all these houses!! :) You always know the best color schemes. I think the colors that you chose to put in your home and put together are so so important. They can completely change the look of a room.

Ok I looked at the first before and thought....what's wrong with that room? It's cute. THEN I looked at your after and thought....oh that's what's wrong! LOL If I ever get a house I'm coming to you guys!!!

Sindy said...

Everyone of these redesign pictures is sooooo inspriational, Layla--the transformations are just awesome! Your hardwork and gifted talent absolutely shine. I love it when you share this kind of post and as someone else commented, I could just hover back and forth for hours ejoying all the detail!

Tricia said...

You are such a gifted designer, I love all your work!

Jenny @ Words on Wendhurst said...

Wow, that is impressive. You have a great eye for design. Just a question, what software do you use for your virtual consultations?

www.moosetique.com said...

Wow! what great makeovers!!

Layla, I notice that you use a LOT of baskets. Can you share where you buy them. I have looked and looked in stores near me and no luck. Is there somewhere where they can be ordered or are baskets a "southern" thing?

ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage and Junkologie said...

Hovering over the photos is like playing a game in which you have to find all the things that are different! With such beautiful images, it is both fun and inspiring!!

I am in awe. You have done it again and again. You are an artist.

Dianne said...

Thanks for the photos! Love the inspiration!

Krista said...

Gorgeous! Would you mind sharing where you have/would/do buy the variety of wooden blinds that you have in each room?

The DG Family said...

Love it all! Oh if we were all so gifted with this fabulous talent.

Suzanne said...

Layla, your designs are so beautiful! Do you have a source list for any of these rooms? I love the rugs you use and I can never find any that I like!

Sharon said...

Layla ... every single make over is fabulous. Some are huge and some are just your little touches to bring colour (the right colour) or re-arrange. What an eye!!

Our Family said...

I just discovered your website and I love it! You are very talented. The before and after pictures are amazing. Love your style!

I am thinking of putting some bamboo roman shades behind my curtains. I like the layered look on your pictures. Is there an affordable place to buy some that you would recommend?

Thanks,
Natalie

Jen said...

I frequently visit your site but don't often comment but these consultation photos are unbeliveable!! I love looking at your ideas. As everyone else has said, you are so utterly talented!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Lovely as always!!

Skruger said...

Layla - there is nothing better than seeing one of your after pictures and having it look like my own living room! The brown section w/ blue curtians is the look I'm been stumbling towards! I just put up the blue curtains much to the dismay of my mother & sister but loved them so I followed my gut. Having you confirm that is like an early Christmas gift!

Your work is amazing!!!

jennibell said...

These are BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for sharing. I love how you look UP and take the eye that direction. . .I'm looking around my house and seeing I don't have much "up" there either. Some of the rooms were hard to get past...you have a great eye for transformation. I hope to use your services one day :)

Emily@notionsonnesting.com said...

Absolutely amazing! I'm seriously in awe!

Sandi and Jason Rodriguez said...

Your virtual consultanting is breath taking and makes me speechless. How I wish you could decorate my entire house. Love you and your husbands work.

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

Such beautiful designs! I love them!! You did a wonderful job, thanks so much for sharing these! I loved poring over every detail :)...
Blessings,
Stacey

You guys rock!
