Introducing Project Neutral Trad

I just recently presented a new local project that I’m so excited about! Project Neutral Trad is the name and you can find it on instagram and twitter under #ProjectNeutralTrad My clients moved into a new home and are looking to make it their own, over time. They love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV and are looking for that same relaxed, casual, traditional- meets- modern style in their own home. We have started with the morning room, dining area and living room. When I present to clients, I like to show them inspiration images, to give them an idea for the overall design aesthetic and direction of the room. I then take each space, breaking it down by vignettes/areas and show them the chosen pieces for that space. I also bring in the actual fabric samples that will be suggested for the pillows and furniture. We lay it all out on the table, so we can start to see how the room will transform and how all of the pieces will tie in together.

The Living Room

The fabric samples from Ballard Designs are the possible ottoman fabrics. The deep charcoal will definitely go on the club chair and we can either match the ottoman with the same fabric or opt for a camel herringbone outdoor fabric. I love the stripe fabric sample from Tonic Living! That will be the lumbar pillow for the chair.

These pages show the other side of the room and rest of the seating. I love the mix of metal finishes and warm and cool fabrics. I can picture this room complete in my head!! #eeeekk

The Morning Room shares the same area with the dining space. There is room for three oversized, slipcovered chairs that will sit by two huge windows. It will be a perfect spot for a cup of coffee and a great book! As you walk into the room {which is directly off of the living room}, there is a long wall, perfect for a quote sign. This accessory was an etsy find, from the sweet shop Between You and Me. What I love about their shop, is that you can purchase a ready made sign, or have them make a custom piece of something meaningful and personal to you.

I love the look of mixing up the head chairs and side chairs. These modern windsor head chairs are a dramatic height and will look beautiful in this room. The table runner and woven basket for the firewood help to bring a casual, not so formal approach to the design.

I look forward to showing you the progress of these rooms in the coming months! Follow along with the hashtag #ProjectNeutralTrad                                                      Have a great day!!

    Amber, this design is so beautiful! I just love every single choice you made! I’m thrilled for the clients b/c they are very lucky to have you on their side making their dream a reality. The fabrics have so much texture and warmth. It looks like a space that people will actually live in and be comfortable with but so much class. Love it!

    • Thank you so much, Kathleen! That means a lot to me! That is exactly the overall style we are hoping to achieve. :)
